    Seventeen.

    I am on the cusp of being a grown up. Doesn't it sound funny, when you think about how little experience you actually have, about how little you know about responsibility, about how small the vastness of high school has really been? And now that I've graduated, and I'm about to...

    Still Very Unprepared

    I'm 28 years old, but still very unprepared for the adult world. I wasn't even prepared for the world of children when I was a child, & certainly not for the world of teenagers when I was a teen. Now that I'm 28 years old & have technically been an adult for ten years now, I am...
