    Youngest Of Three

    Being the youngest doesn't really seem that bad, but when you are the youngest, you realize why it is. Like when you can't stay out past 9:30, when you're 16, because you're oldest sister wouldn't tell my mom where she was. Or when everyone treats you like you're 5 because "you...

    Since I'm the youngest by 1 year everyone

    overlooks what I'm doing to see how my brother is doing. Nobody in my family even talked about going to high school once but was all over my brother when he did.

    I Know I Can't Change It, But....

    As the youngest person in my family (including cousins), you can assume I get teased a lot. Mostly by my cousins. Everyone is much older than me. My sister is 6 years older than me and my cousins are 8 to 11 years older than me. There's no one my age. No one really notices me...

    It is not something that I hated, I am okay with it, it doesn't matter much to me, to be honest. I already don't relate to all my siblings, so what difference would it make to be the oldest or the youngest, but I always like to play a little game, the "what if" game. I don't...
