hey kids! |
i turned 21 a full 6 months after my last older friend. SUCKS. i had to watch them all go out and bar crawl and wait for my b-day to roll around. (september 13th, 1984 for anyone who asks...)
the even suckier part of my 21st? i had tonsilitis and could barely breathe, let alone swallow. instead of getting hammered, i lay on my mom's couch and cried all night. suck.
here's hoping for 22! :D
! Welcome to this community. I know how you feel. Not about the tonsilitis (which i'm sorry you had :( ), but about having to watch all of your friends grow up while you're left in the dust.
I might not be able to identify with your age group, but i can definitely
identify. I skipped one grade when i was younger, and now i'm trapped with people that are always going to be older than i am. I love my friends to death, but sometimes it really does get on my nerves, you know?
Okay, so, sorry for the little speech thing. Just wanted to say hi and welcome. Add me, if you like.

i didn't skip a grade when i was a kid, i started early. i was in kindergarten at 4 (reading by then) and should have prolly been in 1st grade, but my parents didn't want to scar me too much (too late!).
also, adding! :D
