i've been rocking this teenage angst for more than 10 years now. the indecision, insecurity, uncertainty, helplessness, rebelliousness and apathy have't gotten me anywhere.

whenever you're ready to let me, god, i'm ready to grow up.

no
Amanda,
All of those things will happen so fast that you will cry and want your youth back! After you have a baby your will never just be well..you again. You will always have another person to be responsible for. Enjoy college while you can, and I promise that one day we will live nextdoor and have little babies, and everything will be perfect because we planned things out, and did not grow up too fast. You need to be yourself and enjoy being young for now.

think about what you are saying
have you not learned from certain unfortunate souls. all the old people i have ever talked to tell me to hang on to my youth. though they are dangerous behind the wheel they have lived and have had alot of the things you listed. i too want to have a few of those things but am not willing to trade my life and my future for any of them. you will have all those things in time, but for now you are not meant to have them. right now your job is to be young, enjoy life, and have as much fun as you possibley can before all that responsiblity shit takes over your life and that is all that is left responsibility.

If you really want a car payment, take mine! haha...

I know I'm not the queen of advice because I've felt the same way you do a lot, and of corse, when I got them, it sucked (car payment..bills...responsibility). I wanted to change people for the better but you gotta realize if they don't change from your help or your advice, they're not going to change from anyone else's help so they are a lost cause, but at least YOU can say YOU tried to help, you tried to steer them in the right path.
I've had a couple people tell me a few years after I've been broken up with them that my advice was right and that they regret not taking it.
What I'm saying is, you are more grown up than what you think. Those things don't symbol growing up, they just symbolize some kind of duty. Just let life take you where you want to go and do things that you want to achieve and those will come along the way. I've learned you can't be impatient with your life because after you get what you want, what's next?
I hope that helps. Sorry if it's just rambled jargan.
