    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 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.

    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.

    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...

    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'm 31 years old going on 50 lol I'm mature

    for my age and prefer the company of older people. People my age tend to be self absorbed immature, nothing worse than someone who takes selfies work with a girl she's so narcissistic it's crazy!!
