    People that don't know me from school always

    get my age wrong. They guess as young as sixth grade. I am 5"1 and tiny, but I do have features that fit a sixteen year old girl. It is really annoying and just rude that people tell me they thought I was so young. If people knew how it felt they wouldn't say it. I still get...

    But I Don't Need to Be Reminded...

    I know people usually think it a compliment, but... When you card me for cigarettes and I give you my license, don't apologize When you find out that I have a 14 year old, don't ask me if I was 12 when I had her - I was young, but not that young - it's insulting When you...

    I'm 43 years young this year.

    .. but I don't look it, unless I grow my beard out... or if you look closely at my ear hairs. LOL I feel old, though... can't breathe well, can't move well.. ya know, the typical old people syndrome.

    I have always looked at least 10 years younger

    than what I am. It runs in the family. One year my mother walked me to class on the first day of school when I was in middle school, and the teacher told both of us we could have a seat...she thought my mother was a student! I am now 40 years old and working as an actor. I...

    I Have No Quams!

    I have been asked by friends about how I managed to stay looking so young. I have no idea. It could be that I don't wear make-up, not showing much emotion may have had a hand in it, It could be the way I have been able to manage stress. I have no clue. I know it'll probably no...

    I'm 17 and I Already Ha...

    I'm 17 and I already have wrinkles under my eyes. I always look tired and a bit worn out. Maybe the actual experiences of my life haven't been as bad as some, but Bipolar Disorder makes everyday feel like a Holocaust.

    Genetics kinda blessed me

    and f*cked me over. Blessed because I will look young and fresh, even when I'm in my 40s and 50s. F*cked because now, every girl thinks I'm still in high school cause I look young. What they don't know is that I may have the face of a high schooler, but I've got the d*ck of a...

    All The Time

    People who don't know me assume, from my baby face & young appearance, that I'm 13. Despite that I'm around 5'5. But when i tell them i'm 16 they look so surprised. I remembered meeting people who worked at my school mistaking me for a Freshman. lol.
