    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 Don't Act My Age

    I'm in my early 30's and I don't act my age. When I'm in a good mood I'm goofy and joke around. I play video games and I have my own nintendo DS.(I love to play cooking mama) I watch cartoons without my son sometimes lol. The simplest things make me happy. I even say hello to the...

    It's not acting, it's a reality.

    I've refused to give in to the stereo type, of becoming so rapped up, in the way you should suppose to be ,when you mature in age. Through everything, I've been through, people even doctors have told me, I look and act many years younger than I look or act. Any where from 5 to...

    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...

    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'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...

    When you've been disappointed so many times that you begin to realize how important it is to stop and say that's enough coercion for me. Stop talking & show me what you got.
