    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.

    People My Age...

    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.
