    An Odd Age

     It is. Just stuck in between the cool ages of 16 and 18. At 16, most have a sweet 16 and get their license. At 18, some have a debut and you are legally an adult.  At 17, you can go to an R-rated movie by yourself and its your last year being a minor.  I don't...

    17 And...

    I am currently 17 and have been for a couple months. Nothing excites me more then the idea of finally being an adult legally, but I just had this realization that I have been an adult; or treated like one for years now. You see I don't feel like I am the average 17 year old. I...
