    I don't know what people think

    When people look at pictures of me online,

    they typically assume the most hilarious things about me. I am faking my age. I am immature. I do not know anything about politics. It is funny to know how much people can assume from a single profile picture. As if I didn't already know I have a baby face. Yes. I am 18, not...

    Looks can change, someone's personality not so much. Good looks can get you though a few nights a good personality will get you though a few years.

    After all, looks fade with time, no matter how much they nip tuck and suck away, but personality, is forever.
