Hopping on the band wagon to say simmer22 and I are quite similar. c: Except people think I'm older than what I actually am, even without makeup. The most extreme case I can think of is that when I was 12 or 13, I politely turned down a slightly tipsy gentleman who was well too old for me by disclosing my true age when asked. His eyes grew wide, "I thought you were like, 18. You look so much older.."
Ever since then, it's never left. Now that I'm actually nearing 18, people think I'm in my early 20s! It's so strange. I personally don't see it, since I consider myself to be stuck with a chronic baby face.

Let's see.. Oh, others also never would of guessed I actually have a deep fascination with the paranormal, and follow a metaphysical path myself. I suppose that's due the fact I generally avoid discussing such matters should they happen to arise since I'm from a more conservative area.

People tend to be surprised about my age as well and in some cases donít even believe me when I tell them my age. Iím currently 18 but a look a few years younger.

When my dad bought me The simpsons hit and run for PS2, I went into the shop with my dad and the shopkeeper asked him whether I was 7 years old or over as that was the age rating and I immediately said the the shop keeper that I was 12 years old in an irritated tone, although I wasnít intending on sounding so harsh anyway the shop keeper suddenly felt really bad for assuming that I was seven or younger and she apologised to me a number of time.

Life is like a rollercoaster. It has its ups and downs. But it's your choice to scream or enjoy the ride

For a person who doesn't care what they look like, friends and family are always pleasantly surprised when I pick out nice stuff for them to try on or buy. But I don't have much of an interest in clothes, furniture and interiors however are my thing (which is why I love the sims really) its like a free customisable canvas

It's been many years, but one thing I know surprised the hell out of my coworkers is I'm very liberal, and an atheist. They had assumed for years I must be conservative and religious, because I'm really shy and quiet, don't talk much, don't drink, and for a long time, a very conservative and religious coworker was my best/only friend at work. They thought since we got along so well, I must be like him. This coworker who was surprised (also a liberal atheist) was so shocked that I was not who he thought I was, that he asked my permission to tell two other coworkers since apparently they'd all gotten the same impression. I guess part of the surprise for them was that I'd worked with these people for almost a decade, and they had no clue.

People are also surprised about my age as well, I actually only just turned 14 in August. Physically speaking, I think I look much younger tbqh.
I have a bit of a baby face.

ME too! Also no, I have not had a stroke. And I'm not snarling at you, I've always had an ugly smile. I spent years in front of a mirror trying to make a smile...nope, the lips never will turn UP.

Likely my resonance for candles. They can alter the atmosphere of a room and provide heat certainly, but, I rather find enjoyment in observing the way the flame moves; watching the wax of a candle vaporize into hydrogen and carbon. There is much that I come to understand about life when I stare extensively into the base of a flame.

My music taste. I don't mean to sound like one of those "I'm a young person who listens to OLD MUSIC" people; I hate them myself.
I grew up with my parents' music tastes. Midnight Oil, AC/DC, Rolling Stones from my dad. Black Sabbath, Twisted Sister, Pink Floyd, and the Ramones from my mum.
Through that, I've come to find the Sex Pistols, Misfits, and a bunch of great punk rock and metal. People just don't expect a young girl to be into that stuff.

My waking-up schedule is as follows: "Wake up because you have work (Or play Sims)", "Wake up because you have something else you need to be awake for (Sims)", or "Wake up because it's sometime past 1 PM and you can't be in bed all day", or "Wake up, because brain (Sims) says you've had enough sleep, even if you really haven't".

Last night I got up at 3 PM, and went to bed 7.30 AM, just as an example (Were you up playing Sims from 15:00, to 07:30? ). I'm slightly better at keeping to a cycle when I've got work, but only slightly. Mostly it's "be in bed somewhere between 12 and 2 AM, and get up at 6.20 AM", and weekends/days off it's "be in bed before 4 AM, and get up at around 12 AM", giving me roughly 8 hours once in a while so my brain gets happy.
FIFY I feel your pain!

For me, it's my patience, and compassion towards others. Especially with children. With kids, and I'm including teenagers here, I have the patience of an oyster, and my compassion knows no bounds. After all, they are our future . I just don't seem like the type.
