Times are hard for dreamers

I would like to stay seventeen forever. When the onset of youth hits you at full bloom, you're fascinated by the world and hopeful at whatever possibilities there is to come. Still inside the cocoon (otherwise known as in school), where the only crises in life revolve around academic results. You can get away from things by pretending to be ignorant.

At eighteen things become scary. Societal conventions expect you to know how to handle a bit of alcohol, stop looking at guys as species from another planet, know a lot of people and stand on your own feet. Earn your own money. Make your own choices. Suddenly the emphasis is on the word 'adult' instead of 'young'.

This is a freedom I'm not sure if I'd like to venture into.
