There are so many songs that mention the age 17 and MTV had that show called “When I was 17,” like that’s the best year. Next month I turn 18. I can say being 17 was fun. But like the song Strawberry Wine says I’m “stuck between a woman and a child.” There are some Friday nights I do crazy stupid things with friends, spend the night at their house, then Saturday morning we go play on a playground. I started senior year so am anxious to graduate however I’m realizing how bittersweet that truly is. This year is when my eyes opened up to how scary, cruel, difficult, thrilling, and wondrous the world we live in is. I’ve started noticing my political, social, moral, and Christian beliefs becoming more prominent. To me seventeen has been confusing and exciting. But I don’t understand why this age seems to stick out to people. Do you?

My favorite time in my life was when I had just turned 18. Had a lot of things going for me, not to mention I had a body of an Abercrombie and fitch model ha ha (girls are just as shallow as guys, I used to get hit on and checked out constantly, but now that I'm just a skinny guy with no muscles it very rarely happens). Also, I had just met the only girl I have I ever loved at that time. The second half of being 18 though sucked.
I'm loving my life right now too, been a college grad for about half a year, I have good friends, freedom, no major responsibilities, decent paying job that I enjoy, and I still have a very bright future. I have a feeling that 2013 and 2014 are going to be the best years of my life :)0
