It really started bothering me when my brother started growing taller than me and he was four years younger than me. People who did not know us well would call me Timmy's little sister. Excuse me, but I'm 4 years older! I'm don't know who else is short in my family besides my mom and I. My mom was adopted, so I don't know half of what I am. I've come into liking of my height now. :)


My 3 year younger sister is quite a bit taller than me as well and people often get us mixed up. They're so confused and embarrassed when we tell them I'm actually the older one. People never guess my age right anyway. They often think I'm 16. Highlight was when I actually turned 15 or 16 and my neighbour asked me if my parents had already picked a new school for me. She thought I was 12paul-mccartney

I don't know why people think I'm so young though. It's not like I dress like a child or like I'm THAT short or something. Maybe I've got a babyface.

Let's hope it'll stay this way though, so that when I'm in my 40s, people'll think I'm still in my twenties!

I use to get that a lot too when I was a teenager. 

One of my pet peeves is people liking stuff just because its popular. Its ok to like popular things I like The Beatles, Harry Potter, and Glee for example. But liking it cause its the new flavor of the month or everyone else likes them I hate. My in-laws are really bad about this. My husband and my brother-in-law were talking about The Walking Dead. My brother-in-law didn't know it was comic before it was a show. Even I knew that & I hate the show! He started watching Game of Thrones...because everyone else is. My mother in law bought 3D tv because her sister bought one. Funny thing is, she doesn't know how to use the 3D capabilities. People seeing the final Harry Potter just because its the final Harry Potter even if they never seen any of the other movies or read the books! Then asking stupid questions during the movie! ahdn_paul_01I could go on, but you probably get my point. As I said before its ok to like popular things, but like it for what it is.

Antisocial neighbours.

I live in a semi detached house and sleep on the attic, so do my neighbours..unfortunately..if you know what I mean.

Oh and I live in a good neighbourhood, but their garden is awful. The doormat is in their frontgarden and so are some plastic chips trays and rope and godknowswhat. They don't sweep the leaves so everything blows into our garden. And they should really paint the house, it looks horrible. Instead of putting their bikes in the shed, they put them on the friggin sidewalk, so no one can walk on the sidewalk. When they've got a party, they just throw their bikes in OUR garden. 

Not to mention the fighting. You literally hear plates flying around and you can hear them yelling at each other. Once the girl locked the guy out and he was just banging the door and shouting and swearing. This was in the middle of the night and it woke everyone up. The whole street went outside or looked out of their window to see what was happening, including me. 

Our street had a good reputation, but those 2 idiots ensure that no one could ever sell their house. Especially we and the neighbours on the other side next to them.

Oh and they never even introduced themselves to anyone. Up to a few months ago I didn't even know what they looked like, and they're living NEXT to us.

I'm totally gonna live in a detached house on a moor when I'm going to live on my own.

Then we've also got new neighbours across from us. I don't know who they are, cause they haven't introduced themselves either, and they never greet you, but they ALWAYS have the curtains closed. I find them a bit strange.
