    When Someone Asks

    How does it feel to be your age?I ask, how is it supposed to feel? I am 68 years old. I am old in some ways, but in other ways, I am very youthful. I am not *typical* for my age. I don't want anyone telling me that I should be retired. Really? Why should I be retired, because it...

    Even Now, It Doesn't Stop...

    You'd think that after turning 21 you'd stop being compared to others of your age group. Wrong. I'm 24, so people automattically think I'm doing crazy stuff and getting into a ton of trouble. To be honest I'm pretty quiet and conservitive. I do my work at work - even take some...

    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.

    First thing's first. I hate it

    when people in my generation act like we are the worst generation known to man. We are not. We are just getting started and we have our pros and cons just like everybody else. So it's really STUPID for anyone to just assume they're the worst because it's their turn to be the...

    I Am Very Mature For My Age

    So don't hold presuppositions about me based on my age.  Get to know me and see for yourself. I feel that the world as a whole today is corrupt.  Childhood comes and goes like a vapor in the night.  So it was with me.
