My mom gave me a case of beer when I was 18. I still haven't drunk any.

My parents tell me to take it easy at school and not worry about grades, but I still pull several all-nighters a month. Sometimes I wonder what motivates me.

My little brother already moved out of the house... well, to the guest house, but I still live at home.

When I talk with the older people in my class, late 20's to 30's, I feel like I'm talking to little kids.

My parents keep on telling me to get a girlfriend, but I always pull out the excuse that I'm too busy, even though the truth is that I'm irrationally shy. I'm in my last teenage year and I've never been on a date.
