That Awkward Age
Iâ€™m too young to do anything fun, like go to a concert without adult supervision, or get a nose piercing. But Iâ€™m too old to get an allowance, forget my homework, or watch Finding Nemo (honestly, who doesnâ€™t like Finding Nemo?). Those fun times you had in Middle School? They donâ€™t exist. Then I have all these responsibilities, like doing dishes, packing my lunch, doing laundry. Basic stuff, and it isnâ€™t too hardâ€”but the reason? â€œYouâ€™re getting older, sweetie.â€ So Iâ€™m old enough to work but not old enough to have fun? Thatâ€™s just great.
