10 Things Baby-Faced Girls Are So Tired Of Hearing

I’m sure that one day I will appreciate this, but today is not that day.

10 Things Baby-Faced Girls Are So Tired Of Hearing

I know that not everyone looks his or her age. Some look younger and some look way older. I just happen to fall into the category of looking way younger than what I actually am. At least that’s what I have been told all my life. Like millions of us out there we have all someone question our age and are in total shock when we state how old we actually are. I’m sure that one day I will appreciate this, but today is not that day. These are just 10 things I am sick of hearing.

1. "What grade are you in?"

Actually, I am a senior in college and in 180 days I will not have a grade believe it or not.

2. "How old actually are you?"

I’m actually in my twenties. No I’m not 16, 17, or 18. Yes I really am that age. My driver’s license proves it. No it is not a fake, its 100% authentic.

3. "Are you excited for graduation?"

I was excited for graduation back when I actually was graduating. Since I graduated high school may years ago its really lost its thrill.

4. "I will need to see some ID"

I can understanding asking to see some ID for going into the bar or casino but asking me for some ID into a R rated movie is starting to get ridiculous (yes this actually has happened before). Now its just getting to the point that you might as well just walk up with ID in hand because you know its coming.

5. "You don’t look your age"

I am fully aware that I don’t look my age. Thanks for being the 100th person to point that out to me.

6. "What high school do you go too?"

Been there, done that but thanks for the concern. As a young woman in her twenties I get asked this question way more than you would think. Anytime I am home from break or the summer this question seems to always get asked to me. Maybe it’s the way I dress or my lack of makeup but I usually can’t go a summer without it being brought up.

7. "What college do you plan on attending?"

I already graduated but I did attend an accredited university. I have a $80,000 piece of paper to prove it!

8. "Shouldn't you be in school right now?"

If I was in school I would be there. This whole adulting thing isn't as fun with these responsibilities. I do have my "big girl job" and I was actually just heading there now.

9. "One day you will look your age"

Sure, we will go with that. Pretty sure I had this exact same piece of advice given to me a year ago and here I am still not looking my age.

10. Are you allowed to be in here?

Two words: TWENTY ONE.

Somedays I am so thankful for my baby face and other days it can be a struggle. The bottom line is don't judge a book by its cover or a girl by her face.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
