    Annoys Me

    I'm 19 and I guess biologically and by society's standards, I am a 'woman'. But I don't feel like a woman at all. Ofcourse this is just my thoughts but when I think of a woman, I think of a mature, classy, stylish and self-controlled person. I may be mature sometimes but I don't...

    Don't Feel My Age

    When I was 21 my mother told me she was in her 50s before she stopped thinking of herself as a girl. I don't feel my age, and I don't look it most days either (this is a chronic problem, although less of a problem per se the older I get). I started having a problem with...
