    If I could just get fitter and look slightly older on my face, then I'd be good. I get mistaken for being 16/17 a lot of the time, when I am 20 next month, which really annoys me.
    In theory they should, but if I have a full beard, it's rare for me to get carded. Clean shaven I look perpetually 20.
    The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. -Sagan

    I find it more funny than annoying but yeah, last time I was IDed this october and the lady in the shop looked like she was 5 years younger than me...

    I should grow a beard. It will be my new challenge (not an easy one)

    Yeah. I know what you mean. Beards can be good for dodging ID checks haha.


    At the moment, I have no beard. I had something thicker than peach fuzz, but shaved it all off. I have a babyface too, which sucks.

    Yeah, over here, the legal drinking age is 16 for lagers/cider and 18 for liquors, which explains the high rates of teenage pregnancies! [emoji14]

    Whenever someone feels guilty about buying themselves something nice, I'm gonna start yelling "TREAT YO SELF" at them. Then I'm gonna close my eyes, and quickly/creepishly whisper " #TREATYOSELF "

    If you say "hashtag" in your whisper, I will never forgive you.
