Sometimes when people guess my age wrong I sigh to myself because that’s what happens most of the time. When I think about it, I’m not quite sure why I feel exasperated. When we are young we dislike being mistaken for being younger (and to a certain extent, being older). When we’re older we dislike being mistaken for being older than we really are. I don’t think there has ever been a time when people have guessed my age right!
I don’t think there’s as many photos of me after I moved to this domain aside from my Vancouver pictures. I wonder… if I did not reveal my age if anyone would’ve guessed it correctly haha! Here’s some camwhoring pics for my readers ::^^::.
(1) March 2012 (2) April 2012 (3) December 2011. Don’t really know if my pictures can show what I’m trying to convey haha! I don’t have my age up on my current ‘About’ page, but I’m 21 ::sparkle::. I’m usually mistaken for a high school kid. I think the reason why I’m not so fond of that idea is because high school kids are still immature. So it’s not so much the age that I’m fickle about.. I just don’t like getting clumped together with people who love high school drama. I’m not sure if it’s because of how I look or because it’s a mix of my height (I’m around 5′ 2 1/2″?), how I act, and my looks?
Now when people ask me what school I go to, what grade I’m in or any other questions that shows that they think I’m in high school, I just laugh it off. It’s pretty amusing watching their face change into shock when I say, “I’m 21 ::nervous::.” What I find really interesting though is I never get the attention of guys my age! Maybe because they think I’m probably way younger than them, but my childish face apparently brings in the older gentlemen haha!!
Anyways, I guess now that I’m 21 I think I’m starting to not mind so much being mistaken for someone younger. I know 21 isn’t that old, but I am already feeling old since everyone always says your 20s passes by the quickest. I agree. Do you get mistaken for a different age a lot? What age would you prefer people to see you as? I wish I was seen as 19 haha!!
