    I'm a Big Kid Now!!

    I cant wait to be 30, all  my friends are older than me and they always call me the baby because I'm still in my 20's, when I turn 30 I'll finally be a grown-up... i think? Well at least my age will say I am... nothing else will actually change.

    Just Here To Send A Message To All Members Of This Group

    I was scared at the thought of turning 30;  and now I'm 62 - and I'll tell you age is just a number, it's how you feel yourself that matters, so don't worry, you'll be fine; don't think about age. You're as old as you want to be!
