    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...

    Are not always good examples of human beings lol...so I don't really like being compared to them. Also I've always felt older than people my age anyway.

    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.

    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 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...

    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...

    A lot of people would say I looked a bit ugly and that I seem weak. But trust me—if they mess with me, I'll knock them out in one punch. I'm not what I seem to other people.
