Free Your Mind Tuesday #1: Age

This is the first post in a series of post I promise to be doing for the rest of the year (or at least, 49 more weeks).
This is part of the 50 questions that will "Free Your Mind" which I will be doing every Tuesday 
(but this first post was posted late, I was super busy!).

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

This answer would be biased because it's from my own viewpoint. If others were to be asked as to my age, they would tell a different one. Older probably, because of the way I think. Younger, because of the way I act. Older because of the way I look. Younger because of the way I talk.
But since I;m on the hot seat, talking about myself, I prefer to say I really feel younger. :P

I should be 19
or 18. Somebody who has just reached legal age.
  I still live with my parents.
Of course, in the Philippines, children don't traditionally live alone, even if they earn money. They only leave when they get married. I once tried asking my parents about staying in an apartment. Well, as expected, they said NO.

I still go to school.
I've graduated from college already but I'm currently taking up a post grad course. Well, it's still school and I still have to stay up late for assignments. Thankfully, I don't have to wake up early for class.

I'm single.
No need to elaborate on this. Single. Not married. No boyfriend. Very much SINGLE (and ready to mingle, haha!).

I still ask permission when I leave the house.
 Followed by: I still ask money everytime I leave the house.
Well, just because. haha! It makes sense, I don't have a job. My parents don't allow me to work in order to focus on my studies (echos!).

I need to be home by 10 pm on a school day.
My mom is a super worry wart! She worries too much so I need to be home by 10. A few minutes before that, my mom goes berserk!

I have to be home by 12 mn when I go partying, and somebody should bring me home.

(of course, I don't follow this haha).
I need to give a really good reason though if I don't make it on time!

Well, there are a lot of other reasons. And I really feel that I'm younger than who I really am. I feel irresponsible, dependent and vulnerable.

But even if I FEEL that way, it doesn't mean that I am. Because in reality, I responsible, driven, and empowered.
There are however times that I feel like I'm older.

I feel like I LOOK older (sadly), and stress makes me feel older too. But like what I've earlier mentioned, it doesn't mean that I am.

Because I actually look younger. haha! :)
 This is crazy, I actually couldn't think of a decent answer because AGE is relative, and I don't look at a person, or judge his acts because of his age. Tough.

That should be all for now though. I feel like there's no full stop to this post.
Okay, nothing follows : )
