    Technically, I'm Still Eighteen...

    ...just for one more day!  I'm turning 19 on Saturday, June 20, 2009!  I can't believe that I have one year left of being a teen!  It's crazy, but exciting!

    Not For Long...

    I didn't think to add this experience last year when I turned nineteen. I'm turning 20 on Wednesday the 27th, but I figured it's never too late to add an experience as long as it applies to me. My year being 19 went well, nothing really exciting happened to me. I completed my 2nd...

    I Was Born On A Thursday

    Thursday is an interesting day if you think of the old poem: Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace; Wednesday's child is full of woe, Thursday's child has far to go, Friday's child is loving and giving, Saturday's child works hard for a living; But the...

    Nineteen

    I have half a year more of being nineteen. It's such an awkward age... the "teen" suffix guarantees that I don't command the respect given to adults who are 20 and over, yet I am definitely not a teenager any more- only nominally. I'm in college and am surrounded by...

    This one probably isn't a shocker to most people. I was a late bloomer, however. I was nineteen when I lost my virginity, long before I ever got married.
