8 Experiences You've Had If You Look Significantly Younger Than You Actually Are

Sometimes, there are perks to looking like you're 12 when you're really 22.

8 Experiences You've Had If You Look Significantly Younger Than You Actually Are

Looking much, much younger than you are in reality can be incredibly annoying. There are several cons to it — however, there are some pros, as well. Here's to both the pros and cons of appearing to be 12 years old when you're really a full-grown adult.

Constantly getting ID'd

It's inevitable that you're going to be ID'd at any given moment. It becomes second nature eventually.

Being able to get discounts at restaurants and events for kids

You can totally take advantage of this! Those 12-and-under discounts and menus? Score!

People actually treat you like a child

When people start using terms of endearment and constantly mention how "small" and "young" you appear, it gets quite annoying.

When you're older, you'll still look pretty young

It may suck right now, while you're in your twenties, to look so young. But it'll be awesome once you're older and you look like you're 20.

Strangers mistake you for your friend's "younger sibling"

When you're out with your pals for the night, the last thing you want to deal with is people believing you're actually your best friend's little brother or sister.

You can be immature without judgment from strangers

This is the absolute best! You can be as wild and quirky as you'd like, and you won't receive (as many) death glares from the people around you.

Having to deal with people being surprised when you tell them that you're not 12

If you had a dollar for every time somebody said "Wait, really?" once you reveal you're not 12 years old, you'd be filthy rich by now.

Being able to shop in the kids department

Since you're likely shorter than the average young adult, you can save big bucks here. Adult shoes and clothes are so much more expensive than kids'. Take advantage of this while you can.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
