Elderly at 19.

These days I'm always too young or too old.
I'm not 19 enough.
I was the little kid who told other kids on the playground not to run with their shoelaces untied. It's dangerous.
The other day the mailman asked me how many children I had and it freaked me out.
Years ago I was at the grocery store with my dad when a lady asked how old I was. He said I was 8 going on 38.
I'm too much like my mom, too soon.
I need to plan less, make less lists. I have post-it notes all over.
I think I need to be more adventurous. I certainly wish I was more of a free spirit.
I don't want to look back on my college years and regret that I didn't have as much fun as possible.
There's a belle & sebastian song that goes "If I could do just one imperfect thing I'd be happy".
