18 Or Tween?

I'm 18 years old, however I look like I could be 13. This may not seem like a huge issue, but considering the maturity gap there and having people patronize me, it's hard to deal with sometimes. Anywho, there have been a lot of funny/annoying occasions where my age was underestimated, but here's the most recent:

I'm about to get my blood drawn at a doctor's checkup, and naturally I make small talk with the phlebotomist. She asks if I have any big plans for the weekend, and I tell her I'm having a graduation party. She asks where I graduated from, and I tell her the title of the school. "Middle school?" she says. "No," I say with a chuckle, "high school." The absurd thing is that just a moment ago she had verified my date of birth, so you'd think she might reason out my age.. People these days! But yes, it'll be a blessing when I'm older.
