I Act So Much Younger Than I Am

    I've been told that I need to grow up.

    Well, I don't want to! Why should I? I'm going to remain a kid forever. Just call me Peter Pan!

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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...
