Best thing about being 17?
Honestly, I’d say the best thing is that you’re neither an actual adult yet nor a little kid anymore.
You’re not officially an adult, so you can still get away with being childish and still depend on your parents for a lot.
I act like such a kid sometimes that it honestly worries my family; however, at the same time I’m old enough where I can be independent, even if it’s not completely.
I’m seventeen, and I’ve seen a lot, but there’s still so much out there that my amber eyes have yet to see.
I have so much to look forward to, and I’m still young, meaning I have time to achieve what I wish to gain.
Also, I’m young enough to feel no guilt whatsoever eating junk food all the time while I cuddle up in my fuzzy blanket while watching various animes and writing when I know I have other things to take care of.
Basically, I don’t have all the responsibilities I will one day have to take on, but I’m old enough to actually make decisions for myself.
