(Christina, you should check this out too)
Most of the time, I feel like I’m still thirteen years old.
But lately, things have been different. It’s strange, but turning eighteen might have actually changed me. I feel like I have a greater responsibility for the world. I feel like I have a duty as a U.S. citizen and a duty as a conscientious human being.
Actually, things have felt different for a while. Throughout senior year, I’ve felt like I’ve been growing/changing/improving. I’ve grown comfortable with the label “feminist.” I no longer let that image of the arrogant, condescending, environmentally-conscious liberal get in the way of my holding certain opinions. I’ve begun keeping up with the news (especially since AP test season ended). I have this relentless need to improve myself, except sometimes it’s really hard to figure out what’s the right thing to do.
Obviously, I still have things to figure out. God, I love being a teenager (really).
