i turned 18 the other month. i remember thinking when i was 14 that my life would be perfect if i was only 18. i would be able to conquer anything. here i am. i'm 18. and i couldn't feel more powerless if i tried. i still haven't gotten my permit cuz i haven't been able to get a ride to the dmv. i dont have a job because i cant drive myself to and from. i'm bound in this house every night unless one of my fantastic friends is willing to haul me out of here. and i hate having to depend on them and be like "please come get me" all the time. now with graduation i've become even more depressed. i dont think i'll ever be able to do enough to feel fufilled.

Are we the same person? But,

Are we the same person? But, wait, are you me in the future? Because I don't graduate until friday....

I actually had my permit but couldn't go get my license and then ended up selling my car and since I live a good twenty minute drive from all of my friends...yeah, I'm pretty screwed too.
