    Sure I Remember Being 17...

    It was just last year, well.. I’m almost 18 now. But I felt like this was an interesting point of view to be taken. I am currently living in this 17 year old body, and begging to get out of it. When you're 17, everything happens so fast. You enter your last year of high...

    Everything changed during the age of 17 for me. Every year that I've grown older I've asked myself what the best age to be is and every year I've thought it was the year I had just turned,except this year.This year 17 still feels like the age I'll always want to be.

    I have post traumatic stress disorder from leaving for Army infantry basic training on my 17th birthday and everything that I endured for fifteen of the worst weeks of my life to follow. They really should not even let you in the military that young because it's just too early to...

    17 And Miserable

    When it came to the year of my 17th year on this planet it was pure miserable. Life was totally miserable yet life had no real meaning as well. It was a time when those who were family did not care. My care giver finally gave up on me and could not farm me out to those who might...

    So Much More Fun Making Pizza

    I was a jock growing up... in fact, I guess I still am.  When I wasn't playing football or running track, I was lifting weights.  I didn't have much time for work and school and sports.  So, in lieu of a job, I delivered the local free newspaper.  Not much money involved, and...

    It Was Only Last Year

    Let me tell you... it was like the worst year of my life.  The first time I experienced heartbreak and had so many emotional breakdowns. It was getting ridiculous.  But I did meet a lot of interesting people.

    About Being 17

    I was a late bloomer, at 17 I never had any boyfriend yet. Not because I have no suitors, I have a few but none that I liked. I was picky, because I wasn't looking for good looking guys but what was more important for me then was the connectivity, or shall I say compatibility...

    I Learned The Truth At Seventeen.

    I learned the truth at seventeen, that love was meant for beauty queens. And high school girls with clear skinned smiles, who married young and then retired. The valentines I never knew, the Friday night charades of youth, were spent on one more beautiful; at seventeen I learned...

    Yeah, I Remember

    It was miserable for me. I was goth, back before goth was a widely accepted fashion statement. I was shunned by most of my peers, and the ones who didn't shun me were fellow outcasts. My family life sucked, I had no social life, and I truly hated myself, my life, and the world in...
