    I Am Worried My Dreams Will Be Blown Away...

    I am not an adult yet.... I feel like I'm floating in a void of uncertainty, and no-one seems to be able to tell me what the best thing to do is.  I crave knowledge and experience, and I don't want to be limited in my understanding and endeavors. It scares me the way emphasis in...

    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...

    I'm absolutely terrified of my future.

    . Deciding whether or not to go to college, who to date and who to kick to the curb, controlling my lust and fantasies, and more.. I want to be a young girl forever and keep what is left of my innocence

    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...

    I am trying to think of what to do

    for a steady job that pays more than minimum wage. It is difficult for me to know what to do. There is so much I've been trying to realize about the world, that I have naively tried to hide from myself. I've been too trusting. The world is a beautiful place, but there is SO much...

    I'm Terrified.

    I'm terrified. Partly because I leave for college in three short months. Partly because I have been experiencing a LOT of adult situations (ex. working 30+ hours a week, having to do my own laundry, make my own meals, etc.) But most of these things are because of the college...
