    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...

    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...

    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'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.

    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.
