Growing up

I'd like to think that I had an epiphany the other day. 

The other day, as a drama student, me and my college friends were messing around and I'll admit that we were being a little loud. However, I am allowed to be immature because I am only 17! Once I turn about 20 or whatever, that's when I'll grow up and become 'sensible'.

Anyway, our lecturer had a proper go at us for being so immature and that we needed to grow up because we were off to uni soon, and I was thinking to myself, that's it. Adults get kids to grow up too soon! They don't let us live our lives!! They practically force us to become adults, and then my epiphany happened.

I saw young girls getting pregnant, young boys dropping out of school to get a job, drugs and alcohols, criminal records! Adults aren't letting us live our lives, and so were sucked in this whole stressful pressured life which is crap! 

We really are growing up too fast! And it kindah sucks.

It sucks, yeah. I wish I wouldn't have to grow up. Things are much simpler in childhood

Confusion
See I think this is where we are wrong, so many of us think childhood is so easy but it's actually tougher than we think, because if you think it about it, it's where every one (adults) is 'making' us choose our future, It's kind of like their teaching us life with us sub-consciously realizing it.
