"Age shouldn't affect you. It's just like the size of your shoes - they don't determine how you live your life! You're either marvelous or you're boring, regardless of your age." - Morrissey
I just wish someone had told me this back when my ultimate goal was to no longer be treated as a child. As a result, I sometimes wonder if I've cheated myself from an aspect of childhood and have become terrifyingly like Michael Jackson.
But then I see the moon and I feel the ocean and I hear you say: "you're thinking about things i'm only just
starting to think about now. you're figuring out things i'm not even ready to face yet.
You haven't missed out on anything."
