19 or 50?

My brother often tells me that I act like I am 50 years old. While he is not implying that I look 50, he is suggesting that some of my mannerisms are in alignment with someone with several more birthday candles on their cake… and frankly, I have to agree. Here are some reasons why:

  • I am a morning person. I LOVE MORNINGS. I wake up several hours before having to get ready simply to enjoy some quiet time to myself.
  • I have a strict bedtime. Sorry Netflix, I need my eight hours of sleep.
  • I love grocery shopping.
  • Church songs make me emotional.
  • I rarely buy full-priced items at clothing stores.
  • Similarly, I am extremely frugal.
  • I check my online bank accounts daily to make sure everything is in proper order.
  • I love the food, atmosphere, and overall vibe of Cracker Barrel.
  • Board games like Monopoly and Scrabble make me happy.
  • I love scheduling and planning things. My planner and I are attached at the hip.
  • With that, I do not like unexpected events that put me behind schedule.
  • My eyes are extremely sensitive, so driving at night makes me very tense.
  • I often times find myself arriving in store parking lots before they open.
  • I can spend hours browsing the aisles of craft stores.
  • I like taking early morning walks by myself during the summer.
  • I tend to prefer a night-in over a night-out.
  • I eat pretty healthy and try to limit pizza to once a month haha.
  • Rarely do I have dinner past 6:30 p.m.
  • I LOVE Food Network and HGTV shows.
  • My life feels chaotic if I don’t make my bed.
  • I make a to-do list everyday.
  • And finally, I view myself as mature for my age, and I am perfectly content with admitting that.

    Wow, Miranda!! You are a beautiful, intelligent, generous, kind, loving young woman. But I gotta say, I think 50 is pushing it. Seems more like 70-ish…!

    Thinking maybe some of these orderly regimented behaviors come from your babysitter when you were just one year old…?!! (Share that with your mother she will get a good laugh)

    😊 You are such an intelligent, beautiful young “old” lady 😘 Just don’t let being an old soul keep you from a little fun in a different ways once in a while…. try not making your bed and having dinner in bed at 7:30pm watching Netflix 😜

    This is fantastic! I might need your help “adulting” haha. I especially like the part about you being a morning person. Times have changed since we were little! 🙂 Hugs!
