    Why Should I?

    I have so much more fun on the weekend when I just let go and act as i want or as the mood its me.  I am adult when i have to be and can be childish and have a lot of fun.  It would be dull not to be flexible and enjoy the life I have now.

    "Act your age" What the heck is that,

    "act my age?" What do I care how old I am? The Ocean is old as crap and it will still drown your butt with its vigor!

    Oh please! If I were to act my age.

    I'd feel like some parody of a fifties tv show! Cardigan. Pipe. Slippers. Complaining about every story in the paper. Arguing with people I disagree with on tv! I say BOLLO---! I say FORGET IT! I say grow old DISGRACEFULLY!!!!! Date somebody who makes you feel young! Be the guy...

    I like swinging at the park.

    I enjoy kid movies. I like going to arcades and Chuck E. Cheese. I tell corny jokes. I like playing with kids sometimes (until I start getting annoyed). I still sleep and talk to my stuffed doggy that I got as a present for my 9th birthday. I enjoy LARPing. I like pretending...

    I'm 18 years old but I definitely can be a bit

    immature at times. I find myself playing with my childhood dolls, I like playing hide and go seek, musical chairs and tons of other games.

    What is acting my age?

    You see elderly people still pranking each other. There are little girls that have to act older because of their circumstances. If I always act 17...well first...how should a 17 year old even act! Some may say by partying and getting drunk...others may say to be studious and...

    Sometimes I act older.

    Other times I act younger. I don't think I ever act my age. I don't even know how my age is supposed to act

    Why? You think being 40 should give you a green

    Sometimes it's hard to hang out with my old

    friends because they either have kids or are married and can't have there freedom to hang out like before. I tend to act younger and be pretty relax yet work hard if I have too.

    I have a problem with acting my age.

    If you had looked at my grandfather when he was 63 and then me at 66 you would have thought I were the younger one. Stand me next to my brother at two years younger and he looks older. I had a friend who died a couple years ago at 70+. He looked far younger. So What age am I...

    I felt like a little kid yesterday when I cut my own hair to give myself bangs, without a hairdresser, just looking in the mirror at myself with my comb and my scissors. And then I just went at it - side bangs, not straight, not anything in particular for design, just wanting to...

    I was helping my niece with her biology

    homework in which she has to remember vocabulary terms, one of the terms was "reproductive strategy" in which I gave a giggle...she later looked at me with "really?"

    My age group is.. It's whole own thing.

    I often find myself hanging out with people younger than me or older than me. I guess I'm mature enough to converse with adults and yet so very playful-enough to get along with little kids ^.^
