    I'm tired of being the responsible one,

    the sensible one. I don't want to be the careful one, the cautious one, the reliable one. I want to jump into new experiences, follow my dreams, live a life full of wonderful adventures.....when will I get to be carefree and live those dreams?

    The Good Child.

    I have 4 siblings and not to be really mean but my siblings are not the brightest crayons in the box. My younger sister feels the need to sneak around, slack, lie and be all sneaky even when she doesn't have to be. Our parents are really laid back with that sort of stuff and my...

    Out of my trio of friends,

    I am the responsible one; the one who organises days out, get-togethers, parties etc. you name it, I've had to plan it. Don't get me wrong, they're both fun and awesome people, just I wish I could sit back and relax once in a while.

    The "Old Soul"

    I've been told my whole life that i was an "old soul". To this day I don't really understand what exactly that means or if its a compliment. From what i understand it means that your reliable and responsible, you can be counted on to take care of those who can't take...

    So what if I'm the oldest!

    I'm still a person. I can't control others anymore than they can control me. My sibling doesn't listen. Oh well it's not my problem. If the kids at camp don't behave, that's all right they'll deal with the consequences. Just don't make it my problem. I do what I want. And when...

    and irresponsible. I always have to do what has to be done. Always must do the right thing and put my own desires last. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for having the ability to do what I do and for everything I have. I just dream of taking off on a whim once in a while...
