    13 And- We Can't Trust You!!!

    I Am Very Mature For My Age

    I'm 31 years old going on 50 lol I'm mature

    for my age and prefer the company of older people. People my age tend to be self absorbed immature, nothing worse than someone who takes selfies work with a girl she's so narcissistic it's crazy!!

    I'm turning 18 in a few days.

    I'm not expecting much to change, but at the same time, I expect so much more responsibility. I'm excited & scared.

    I hate it when people think I'm lying about my

    age! Just because I'm on a higher maturity level than other adolescents my age doesn't mean I'd lie about my age. Duh.
