18 is when you feel all grown up
and barely grown at all
you are thrust into the land of keep up
and you are expected to make it out standing tall
most people don't
you only see the success stories but most people aren't success stories
they are works in process, a first draft, an initial concept, a prototype and they
will bend and break in ways they never could have imagined
and I am only 21!
I do not have any advice for 18 year olds except that
what you feel now
you will not feel in three years time
you are the youngest of the grown ups and there is so much more growing to do even in just three years
but I do not want you to accept this.
I do not think acceptance is what being 18 is about.
