Old Lady or Teenage Girl?

A little over a week ago, Taylor at Daily Tay wrote a post about how she is an old lady trapped in a young body. As I was reading it, I found myself nodding and saying "me too!" At the end of the post, I decided I was also an old lady, and I was okay with it.
Then yesterday, Helene wrote about how she may or may not be a teenage girl. At the end of her post I too realized that I was really a teenage girl, and I am okay with it. Except now, I am having an identity crisis. Old lady or teenage girl??

Fact:
I prefer to go to bed around 8:30-9:00 most nights. I use to be able to stay up until at least 11:00 and still be ready to go for class at 8 am. On weekends I also wake up around 6:30 am. This is considered sleeping in to me, since my alarm goes off at 5:15 on weekdays.
Conclusion:
Old Lady
I have been known to stay up until 1-2 am during the summer however. 

Fact:
There have been numerous days where I am dressed like one of my 8th grade students: skinny jeans, t-shirt, TOMS or UGG Boots. (I have multiple pairs of both...)
Conclusion:
Teenage Girl
I prefer loafers/flats to heels any day of the week. I just can't handle wearing heels all day. How do you ladies do it?? I also think a cardigan is one of the best pieces of clothing ever.

Fact:
Hot tea is my drink of choice. Plain hot tea. In fact, you may call me a tea hoarder. In my kitchen right now I have at least 5 or 6 different boxes of tea bags.
Conclusion:
Old Lady
My love of tea started in high school at a local hipster coffee shop. 

Fact: My favorite cold drink is chocolate milk.
Conclusion:
Teenage girl
I prefer my chocolate milk made with Ovaltine.

Fact: I have had to Google SMH, INYMI, ROFL etc.
Conclusion:
Old Lady
I am on Twitter and Instagram. Plus I can hashtag with the best of them. #imnotasoldasiact

Fact: My iPod has a wide assortment of Kei$ha, Bieber, Nicki, One Direction, Pitbull and the like.
Conclusion:
Teenage Girl
My iPod has a ton more on it as well. Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharp, Simon and Garfunkel etc,

Fact: Loud music/bars are not for me. I would much rather have a nice conversation where we don't have to scream to hear each other.
Conclusion:
Old Lady
I do love going to concerts!

Fact: I can't figure out where to shop at Macy's and Nordstrom. BP is usually to young looking for me (except for the cardigans) and the non-juniors department of Macy's seems like somewhere my grandma would shop.
Conclusion:
?????

So what do you think: old lady or teenager girl? How about you??

Hahaha this is hilarious! Glad Helene and I had some part in inspiring such a funny post!

I think I'm mostly old lady.

Helene said...

Haha love this. I'm in the middle too. Great post!!

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said...

I am definitely more of an old lady. I love drinking tea and going to bed early. The inner teenager in me does love skinny jeans and UGGS, though.

I never drink chocolate milk but this sure made me want some!

And I SO wish I could make myself go to bed that early, I'm definitely more of a night owl than a morning person unfortunately.

Stopping by from Tell Me About it Tuesday blog hop!

Figuring out where to shop in department stores is the worst! Of course, sometimes I don't get a real choice because all of the clothes in the adult section are too big.
Ideally I would like to have your sleeping schedule...but lately I've been going to bed at 11:00 and waking up at 5:30--and that isn't quite enough. Definitely old lady. :)

Ashley said...

I was just having this conversation with Helene about how I'm a little bit of both as well. Loud music? No!!! But concerts? yes!! How does that work exactly?! :-)

Erika said...

This totally cracked me up. Now I feel the need to do an old lady/teenager assessment on myself. Except I'm pretty sure all signs (except wardrobe, maybe) would point to Old Lady. Oh well...at least I have you for company (until 8pm)! PS I think that making your chocolate milk with Ovaltine puts that particular vice into the "Old Lady" category)

Alison said...

Ah, this is great! I can't do heels either. Crazy ladies that can impress me so much!

I also love tea and cardigans! Two of the best inventions out there.

I wish I could go to sleep that early, but Nick is a late-nighter. It's awful. Maybe someday he'll hit that point where he wants to go to sleep earlier. Maybe not.

Angi said...

Pretty sure I'm definitely an old lady. Even though I do like me a cute pair of heels on occasion. ;)

Michelle said...

Oh I love this!! I'm definitely an old lady. I was BORN an old lady. However I do rock some Uggs and Toms on occasion. And I'd be lying if I said One Direction isn't on my iPod...

Can I just say, I don't understand stores that jump from Junior to old lady! I totally understand how you feel!

this is so funny! i go to bed so early and I've matched my third graders before in fashion choices!

LaynahRose said...

Haha. That's hilarious. So many of the old ladies I know go to sleep late though, since they don't have kids or work to wake up to. Jealous
