    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.

    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'm not expecting much to change, but at the same time, I expect so much more responsibility. I'm excited & scared.

    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.
