I Am Not a Typical Teenager

I am often mistaken for someone in their twenties by virtue of the way I act and speak. I have a respectful attitude towards authority. I avoid confrontation in any form. I get up early. 368 People

    I am 17 but have the mind of a 25 year old.

    I am dressed in vibrant colors and look happy but I am sad to the core and I listen to dark music. I have friends but none of them know how I feel. I am an open book but there are some pages I have torn out.

    Something I've never understood was that

    The Way I Am

    I'm often mistaken for someone a lot older than I actually am simply for the reasons described in the group. No one expects a 17 year old girl to be respectful, polite, well-spoken, calm, and generally quite aware. Nor do they expect someone my age to be up and awake at six...

    I lack sympathy or emotion some times.

    Everything is just like in monotone. Somebody could be crying their eyes out and i wouldn't bat an eye.

    I think your stereotypical teen is

    either a sports addict or hoodrat. However unlike a lot of people my age I enjoy a lot of classical music(Baroque <3), dressing nicely(fashionably) and calm walks. This isn't to say that I don't enjoy playing games or doing sports but compared to most kids in my school I...
