    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.

    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...

    I'm 18. I'm straight edge; I've never drank

    alcohol or smoked any substance. Sex isn't at all a priority of mine. Never gotten in trouble with the law. A-B student. I hate being lumped with childish substance abusers that don't care about their future.
