    Coz I Am Who I Am

    Grrrr...

    Like she is so ******* good and I need (or should I say HAVE) to be like her. She was accepted in the best university in my country. And she is being spoiled! Mom bought a car for her, while I have to beg for hundred years if I want to drive my car. My sister is so selfish and...

    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...

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

    People always hated the idea of me going out side at night. At first it was "You are 5! it is too scary for you!" I snuck out anyway to see the stars. Then at seven they were like, " Oh you'll get stolen, you are too cute, don't go alone! Take someone with you!" so I asked my...

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    People My Age...
