One theme of my clinical internship has been trying desperately to look older. A girl can only take the comment that she looks 19 as a compliment so many times before she gets insecure/pissed off.
I've weighed all my options to age myself (start smoking, tanning bed, act ignorant about technology-- "What are all these kids twittering each other about?") but none have done any good. I'm just going to keep channeling the movie therapists that I look up to, such as Meryl Streep in Prime.
Pashmina, chunky jewelry, glasses, awkward short hairstyle, horrified look. I can do all of these things! :/
