Lately more and more I have found myself becoming a responsible young adult. At times this is a very scary idea for me to handle, but I feel that I handle it with grace and style (most of the time!).
However it seems to me that no one else sees this new adult. The same old stereotypes that have been slapped on teenagers everywhere seem to haunt me religously. Allow me to tell you about my life, and this is not meant to be a brag, I get straight A's in school, I'm president of our Mayor's Committee on Youth, I work 30 hours a week, I am treasurer of Catholic Youth Ministry, and I am a member of every community service club at my school. Now why is it, WHY IS IT, that I am nothing but a teenager in the eyes of everyone else????? There is so much more to me than that...and frankly, I'm about to explode!
