    I'm Only 30 But...

    I feel old and busted. All my life has been at hard work and military travel. I've seen the world but I've been sweating my *** off at manual labor many a Saturday night. I wish I could just relax, have a drink, have a cigarette, have fun. Go to a ***** club, go to the casino...

    I Feel Old, Not Wise.

    I thought I'd make it clear that I feel old not wise. I am not so arrogant that I would claim to be knowledgable beyond my years.

    Wrinkles On My Soul

    I'm 17 years old, but I feel like I'm a thousand years old, at least. I've been told by countless teachers that I act older than I am. Sometimes I wish that I could be as careless and trusting as my classmates, but I can't. I'm a girl, so I should act as the other girls do, right...

    Don't Laugh!

    I know... I am only 28 and many would like to kick me in my bottom, for thinking this! XD But in the mornings, I feel like an old woman. Everything aches, creeks, and cracks. Sometimes my back will go out and I will bend over with a, "OH, my back!" lol. And my...

    I'm About 50...

    Even though I'm physically 31 and socially only 17 because I didn't have a teenagehood....mentally I think like an older person. I'm cool with that. Bring on the Anais Nin and Jack Daniels please. "Age does not protect you from love . But love, to some extent, protects...

    I'm not exactly proud of this. I feel like some of the things I think and feel are things that a seventeen year old should definitely not be thinking and I know why I have them. Tragedy changes a person and it has forced me to grow up than I ever wanted to. I feel so much older...
