    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...

    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...

    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...

    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'm 25, but I'm still a kid inside.

    Its impossible for me to walk into any store without looking at the toy section. And most times I end up leaving with 3-5 Hot Wheels or other cars
