Crackers Work? 24


I wish I could post a picture of myself to find out how old everyone thinks that I look. I was at Wal-Mart the other day buying DVDs with money that I got back at Christmas. One of the DVDs was Cruel Intentions, which is rated R. That means I have to be at least 17 in order to buy it. Well, I’m 21, so I don’t expect to be asked if I’m old enough. The girl at the store asked me. As my mom and I were walking out of the store, I asked my mom if I looked like I was still 17 or younger, and she told me yes. Then, I remembered that when I first started at The Ark, Nina thought I was only 13. I don’t think I look all that young, but apparently other people do. The only person who has told me that I look 21 is my dad. I hate being 21, but if I have to be this old, then I want people to be able to tell that I’m this old.

I spent the majority of my day at the hospital. Nana had rotator cuff surgery, so I was there with her. Well, actually, I was with my mom and my aunt. I kept making weird comments, which is actually a good sign. It meant I was comfortable enough to make my strange comments. For example, when a nurse said that crackers wouldn’t work, I had to bite my tongue to keep from saying, “Crackers work? What kind of jobs do they do? How much do they get paid?” I did actually say it to my mom when the nurse stepped out. I said other weird things to everyone. I usually reserve my weirdness for my parents.

I realized the other day how much I miss conservatives on Celestial. Of course, I don’t miss rude conservatives, which is mainly who showed up. I also miss the controversy at boards like Rapture Ready and other conservative boards I used to go to. I miss arguing. Arguing can be fun. I miss people posting comments about my opinionated section, except when people say completely unrelated stuff. Okay, so most people don’t post any comments in that section, though I wish they would. So, please go check it out and say something.

    Don’t be bothered by the fact that you look young. So do I and it used to bother me like crazy. But I’ve come to embrace it. Sure, being 22 and still being carded to buy lottery tickets is crappy, but when we’re 40, we’re going to be so glad that we look young for our age!

    Don’t feel lonely, most people guess me for about 16 :-/. They’re suprised when they find out I’m 23. But seriously, cherish it, it means we age slowly so maybe we’ll only look 30 when we’re 40 ;).

    That happens to me too – a lot of times, actually. I’m 16 going on 17, but most people think I’m like 13. Sigh. Oh well, I suppose this is something we’ll learn to appreciate when we’re all middle-aged! 😀 Lovely site you have here btw. 🙂

    It’s neat that we agree on so much. I don’t tend to make very many conservative friends anymore. 🙂

    well i think its a good thing that you look younger than you are because when you get older like at 40, you’d look younger and…well, you get my point!:)

    I always say odd things. hehe. But that’s good that you felt comfortable to say strange things. I hate when I’m uncomfortable around people.
    I’m 16, now, but two years ago, when I was 14, this guy asked my sister and I if we’d like to babysit for his kids, and he’s like, “You’re 18, right?” We’re like… “uh… try 14” It was odd. lol. At least when you’re older, like 35 or older, you’ll look younger! That’s always good!

    I always get asked for ID, out of a big group of people a bouncer will always pick me out and say “Im going to need some ID love”, its quite annoying but Im getting used to it now!! Just think, it’ll stand to you when you’re 40!

    Wow. I think I bought Cruel Intentions when I was about 13 and I was never carded. It was at a Barnes & Noble too…you’d think they’d be strict. Go figure.
