    Other Times I'm Very Aware

    I like to think I am a mature chap, always have been, even in my fledgling years, and it is undoubtedly a good thing. However, it's also good not to get too weighed up in cynicism, have the capacity to remain excited, keep that sense of wonderment, even a sense of the playful...

    Hold On...

    Sometimes, when I'm asked how old I am, I just freeze and quickly add up the years in hope of remembering. It comes to me eventually, after hard mathematical sums in my head. Yesterday I was asked and I said, hold on. Then I walked into this shop hid for a while then came out...

    I Still Say I'm 17

    Even though I turned 18 last November... I just forget. It takes me about a year to realise and by then, of course - I'm another year older.

    Very Seldom

    I very seldom can remember my age!  It would be easier to just say I sometimes remember how old I am, but not very often.  If I go by what seems like my age, well that's easy, I feel the same as I have since around thirty. Well actually it was my thirty second birthday...

    I Sometimes Feel Too Young.

    I think sometimes when I feel inferior or too shy to speak up, I have to remember that I am old enough for people to take me seriously. Sometimes, I feel like I am 10 rather then 17. I am not even 13. I am almost legal, so shouldn't I feel older?

    Slips My Mind

    Whenever people ask me how old I am they give me this weird look because it takes me a minute to remember. For some reason I always go to say 19. I don't do anything for my birthday (another thing I forget all the time) so the years just kind of slip by without me noticing.

    I guess the problem is that emotionally I'm much younger and physically I'm a bit older than my chronological age. So when someone asks my age, I flounder to remember how long I've walked this earth!
