Why I'm actually a 10 year old | One To Nothin'

Why I'm actually a 10 year old

I recently started nannying for a little girl, and as it turns out I'm just a 10 year old girl inside. Sure, I can drive, see rated R movies, vote and buy liquor, but that doesn't mean anything (especially when I get questioned for doing all of these things on a regular basis). Here are some of the reasons why I'm actually a 10 year old in a 23 year old's body.

1. I love Spongebob, iCarly, Big Time Rush, Victorious and pretty much any Nickelodeon show made for humans at least half my age.

2. I may do cleanses and try to "eat clean," but at the end of the day I am really dying over mac'n'cheese, pizza, ice cream (umm remember magic shell?!) and oreos.

3. Sometimes when I choose to indulge in said snacks, I pretend that my metabolism still works like my former 10-year-old self's did. (It doesn't.)

4. I think bouncy balls are pretty much the funnest things ever. Yes, I said "funnest" and it's perfectly acceptable because I'm still in elementary school.

5. I fully think boys are the most entertaining and exciting topic of conversation.

6. I just want handwritten notes always. I think I would appreciate text messages more if they were in the sender's handwriting and had a notebook paper lined background.

7. A new nail polish color is cause for extreme happiness and I often can't decide on just one, so I end up with awesome glittery, mismatched manicures.

8. I still feel like I'm playing dress up when I put on heels and lots of makeup.

9. I sleep with a stuffed bear named "Fluffy" who I've had since I was about 5.

10. I use the word "like" far too often.

11. I'm really, really good at hula hooping.

12. And Bop It. Do kids still play that..?

13. The only video games I like are ones with really bright colors and happy music.

14. I hate cleaning my room.

15. I squeal very loudly when I see puppies.

16. I think playgrounds are wonderful and swinging gives me butterflies.

17. I like carpets better than hard floors because I can tumble on them.

18. I still want to be 50 different things when I grow up.

19. I smell every single candle in the candle aisle.

20. I think dandelions are magical and I still make wishes on them.


  1. I am so with you on no. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 16, 18, 19, and 20!

  2. i just read this and i can relate to everything on your list. I try to eat clean but I end up craving Mac n Cheese myself, ha. I also use the word "like" way too often! I don't think I'll ever outgrow that to be honest haha.


  3. I swear we're like personality twins! Except I don't mind tidying my room lol.

  4. Can we just talk about the part where you're stinking adorable? Yeah. :)

  5. wonderful ^^ 10 was a fun age!

    i'd like to get drunk and play with one.

  7. Squealing for puppies, mac n cheese, dandelions, and bad tv? Yes please :) I'm 10 too!

  8. I used to run a daycare. When I was with the kiddos, I knew that I was a lot younger than my age says. Everything on your list is still true for me, too. :)

  9. Oh man, looks like I'm definitely 10, too.
    And if loving the subject of boys means that, well, I'm TOTALLY okay with it!
