My mom is too old...

Quick info in the beginning. My mom is 52 years old now. I'm 22. OK, now I can start.
My mom and me had the same fashion taste for quite a long time. We wear each other's clothes and we are perfect shopping duo for most times. However, she recently started to change her wardrobe because "she's too old for this". I feel stupid for even needing to say this, but here it is: anyone can wear whatever they want. Now that we know that, I also have to say that I'm a firm believer in dressing according to your age. I don't like seeing granny in mini skirts, for example. Thankfully, my mom feels the same. But it never struck me that she's now 'that older lady'. I still see her in her early 40s (she was about 35-40 when I started noticing people around me and when I transferred more into her world from being a baby). She threw away her shorts and now that we have summer going on here, she needed some light clothing. I offered my shorts and she refused as they are too short (my shorts come to mid thigh area). I was so surprised that she said she is "too old". I've been with her for 22 years and, I guess, I stopped thinking about it. Also, another thing why I don't see her as too old is because she honestly has the better figure than 22-year-old me. I'm writing this now cause the thought of my mom being old was never on my mind before she said so. Although I'm aware that she is not actually old, for me, 50s are the start of the last part of life. And that scares the sh*t out of me. I know I'm overthinking this, but I can't get it out of my head. My mom thinks she is old. And she will always be 40 to me. She'll always be in her best age, looking the best she ever did.
Anyway, not to bore you with my mom not wearing shorts anymore, I'll end it with a question. How do you see your parents? Are they getting older in your eyes? This is so weird to me. Haha.

"Typical girl" vs. me

You all know how there are some things 'typical girls' do, some ways 'typical girls' look or act and there's always that "Am I the only girl who...?". Of course not. I don't even know if most girls are 'typical girls', but I'm here to compare how 'typical girls' and I are similar or different.
Note: I'm not saying doing 'typical' things is wrong or bad.

  • long time getting dressed/putting on make-up
Of course I have my moments and if I really know I have the time, I'll put on my pants and then chill for about 20 minutes before putting on my shirt and this can last for 3 hours. But in general, it takes me about 10 minutes from being in bed sleeping to being fully ready to go out (and yes, I did count the time once and it took me 7 minutes from the morning alarm to me locking the doors behind me).
  • eating only salads
To be honest, I don't think I eat a lot, but I'll definitely have a burger over salad any time. I do love salads and all that healthy stuff, but people who are too careful about what they eat because "they could gain weight" are ridiculous to me.
  • wearing only heels
There are actually women who wear heels 24/7, but most of all you have to admire them for being able to do all the stuff  a person has to do in those shoes. I love wearing heels, but I'm also super happy in sneakers, boots, flip flops or anything else.
  • not getting those hand dirty
I usually have very long and painted nails so they're my biggest problem, but nothing a good pair of working gloves couldn't protect. I often help in the woods cutting and transporting trees, mowing lawns, painting fences, feeding domestic animals and so on.
  • loving only pink
You must know by now that girls do wear other colors too, right? Well, I think I own only one pink shirt which I rarely wear anyway. The last time I was properly wearing pink was about 10 years ago while my mom was still dressing me.
  • overthinking
Now, here I'm definitely a typical girl. I spend hours thinking about some stupid stuff. Don't even get me started on guys and all of those situations. I honestly wish I could reduce my overthinking and to be honest, I think I did quite an improvement in regards to, let's say, 3 or 5 years ago, but it's still not there where I would want it to be.

There could be more stuff on the list (duh!), but I remembered these on the top of my head.

Today: 5.7.2017.

Doing: I'm currently on vacation so I'm enjoying myself - swimming, eating, watching TV, the usual, but without a worry on my mind
Mood: great!! - actually could be better, but I decided not to complain this week at least as I'm at a beautiful place, having a peaceful and fun time
Favorite person: my brother
Thinking about: getting a job next week and deciding which one I'll pick
Missing: going out - I wrote that one last time too, but I really wanna go out and party!
Loving: that I finished my college year recently and now I'm free as a bird
Hating: sun burns I got so I can barely walk
New discovery: you can get blisters from sun burn too - I thought this kind of blisters is possible only when you actually burn yourself (like on a stove or fire - done it both)
Listening to: Luis Graziatto - Something just like this (sax cover) - honestly check out his channel, these covers are touching my soul (he did a cover for Despacito too...)
