    I just don't feel important to him anymore :(

    When he says he left and he "forgot" to to tell me (he went on vaction) yeah... seriously hurts because I was gonna go up and DRIVE 4 hours just to see him where he works. He needs to come back to his hometown. Which is where I am. I feel like I'm nothing to him. I feel like he...

    I fail at being a good friend, I fail at being a good daughter, mostly I of who I am. I've done a lot d GREAT stuff in my life (modleing, fire department, etc.) but I failed becasue I'm being called worthless, useless, and make NO ONE should be called by their family.

    I love how you say "you're 18,

    do whatever you want." then when we sleep together you and I talk, then when my parents find out you turn into a dad figure. always like "just do t agrue" "remember I am always here." etc. how about you man up to what you did instead of trying to get me to lie about it.

    I'm 18, and a senior in high school.

    I love high school, but cannot wait for college. I'm really popular in my high school of about 3,500. I start for the varsity volleyball team. I do not like the fact that I am growing up.

    18 year old body with an old soul.

    I rather stay home and bake cupcakes and paint than go out. Shouldn't I be into partying and drugs like most people my age? Nah.

    I decided to stay at school,

    but also may have to quit. I am auctioning for a MAJOR modeling company and totally excited! Working out, eating healthy, and living my life for modeling is turning out to be my favorite thing! I did quit the fire department for this!

    and throughout my 18 years of life I've had

    some really crazy experiences, the most epic once I always recall are: 1. Saving my mom from being murdered by my dad - age 5+ 2. My first crush -age 4-8 3. My first crush on an adult - age 7 (he was 21) 4. Being bullied by 2 guys and one of them accidentally seeing me naked...

    I just turned 18 yesterday.

    To me, this is just a reminder that I'm growing up. Soon I'll have to deal with adult responsibilities. I wish I could stay a teenager.

    Just turned 18 and W O A H.

    I've been waiting for this day for ever. Like, I've got the power now. I can go out at night and drink (but just a bit) and get a driving licence and go places and ****. Sounds like a fresh new start for me. I hope it is.

    I'm frustrated. I have recently turned 18

    and now am a legal adult. Of course though I'm still a senior in high school and live under my parents house. I'm frustrated because I can't find my place. Am I a child or an adult? I pay for my car insurance which puts me in an adult situation , but I'm not allowed to stay over...

    Apparently being 18 means I'm an official adult.

    There's this guy I grew up with who's a year

    younger. He looks 20 and acts 25. And now he's getting kinda friendly but I have to shut it down......mostly cause he's a minor and here I am feeling like a *********. The timing's kind of a shame cause this guy is awesome. I've always thought of him as older.
