    18 Going On 7!!!

    Well, I'm just nearing 19 now, and I still act like a kid, not that I mind. I just find it easier to be who I am and what's wrong with being foolish?? It lightens up the day tremendously!! I always get the comments that I stopped getting older when I was 7!! But I was a very...

    OK...I'm 44 years old.

    I feel about 25 mentally.LOL I don't act my age at all. I have been told that numerous times. I get along with people both older and younger than me, but seem to get along better with the younger ones. I guess I feel like I'm getting old & I can't deal with that at the...

    I Am Who I Am and Will Always Be

    I sometimes forget about all the abuse that I have done to my body and start doing things as a special lady once mentioned is not "age appropriate" for me.  I enjoy life too much not to try and go for the gusto.  I learned a long time ago that life is too...

    I still care a lot about people

    and future generations. Most people my age and older only care about getting theirs.

    I am 16 years old already.

    I am a childish or a childlike, whatever! But I always act like I'm still their baby and their one and only princess. They said, I'm too old for acting that way but that's the way I like it.

    I'm definitly not old, but I guess people are starting to consider me as an adult.. young adult. I still act like a six year old sometimes. I'd rather blow bubbles and run around outside barefoot in a sundress. Hitting eighteen felt like I couldnt act like a kid anymore...

    Just The Same Person In An Older Body

    I remember reading someone saying that they didn't expect that growing old would work the way it works. They likened it to just being the same kid in just an older body. Each year that passes, you're kind of the same person, but you look in the mirror and you look older. That...

    I am 18 years old and dating a 14 year old. It seems wrong. I know. But he makes me happy. And he is physically and mentally matured. We connect better than I have with anyone.
