31 (who?)
Just a Kid by Kaxen6 Just a Kid by Kaxen6
Today at work, a kid who was at most half my age (more like five, six, or seven), called me "just a kid." Actually, there's a chance I've been correcting papers as long as he's been alive since I started when I was 15 or 16 and I'm 21 (and a half) now.

It's official, I look so damn young that even small children can't tell I'm not one of them.

And one other boy keeps calling me "he" when he refers to me.

None of the kids think I'm in college. @_@

They don't call me Kaxen at work, it just feels weird to use my real name online (PS don't try to get chummy with me by calling me by my real name if I've never seen you in person... it just feels weird.).

Anyone remember laserdiscs?! Boy, that made watching sing-a-long songs and movies really hard when I was a wee little 4 year old with short little arms.

lol I also look very young for my age, when I was buying fabric I overheard my friends father say that when I'm 40 years old I'll still look like I'm 12 (I'm 18). Being short doesn't help either and I also get confused as a dude.

My dad said the same thing about me. @_@

I totally understand. It sometimes annoys me how childish I look when I'm a college freshman.

I can't remember if you've already touched the subject, but would you ever grow your hair out? It might help reduce the amount of times things like this happen.

I used to have longer hair, but being too lazy to clean the drain, I stopped having long hair.

Not really sure if the age the age thing is a good thing or not.

I know what you mean. XP I'm 20 and I look like I'm still in high school. But I guess I'm greatful that I look like a high school student because I bought the wrong bus pass. I was so used to using the bus pass for students it's like no big deal. But now that I'm ....20.... I had to lie that I lost my student ID to avoid payment. >.< Oh god. XD Mid-life crisis at age 20. that's so sad.... T.T

Laserdiscs are like DVDs except 4 times as big but holding so little information that you'd have to flip the disc over halfway through the movie.

I face the exact same problem. Little kids stare and try to play with me and follow me around and ask me to be their friend... then I see the looks on their faces when I tell them I'm actually 21... Pity the little midgets. :laughing:
I got in "trouble" one time when some adult women saw me walking around at night with a dude friend (I was trying to help him find his tent at the campsite, which had mysteriously disappeared). I didn't get what they were so angry about until they said "a little girl shouldn't be wandering around with an 18-year-old boy in the dark." They quickly excused me when I told them I was 18, too... :ohmygod:

Call me Jack, Fruit, Texan, or by any other name, but I completely loathe being called my real name on the interwebs. ...Except on Facebook. My entire family is on Facebook, and they'd be the first to make fun of me if I started using one of the above nicknames. :x

But to be honest, I've never heard of laserdiscs, not in my entire lifetime... until just now, anyway. I still remember what pogs are, though... do those things still exist? We used to have hundreds of those things.
