Why turning 18 scares the crap out of me

It’s well into September of 2017, which means only one thing. The school year I turn 18. What I mean by this is it’s the start of people who I grew up with, went to school with, am friends with, turning 18. This scares me greatly. Most people can’t wait until their 18th birthday. They can’t wait to “legally” be able to do all the things they have wanted to do and have been doing anyway since they were 15. Me, well I’m shitting it.

I am not a big partier so the whole “going out” thing doesn’t bother me too much. Yes, I will now and then, but it’s not something I’m desperate to do. There are so many things that terrify me about turning 18, here a few.
·University. Do I want to go? Do I not? ·What am I doing life wise for that matter? ·Adult prices of things (boo hoo) ·Pressure. I ain’t a kid anymore. ·Where have all the years gone?

My response to Kim Kardashian being robbed

Kim Kardashian was robbed the other day. It is a well-known common fact by now. Everyone is talking about it, but some not so in a positive light. Kim Kardashian is a mother, a wife, a sister, an auntie, a friend. She is a woman, a human being. She is just like me and you. Or your mother, your wife, your sister, your auntie, your friend. She was and is just a person who was held at gun point, against her will, and underwent a scary experience that no one should wish upon anyone else.
Yes, I understand, things like this happen every day, people get held up. But we don’t hear about it. But that is understandable. They are not famous. I don’t mean that is a derogatory way, I’m not saying they matter any less, linking back to my original point, she is just a human like anyone else. But we can’t expect to hear about it every single time it happens, but we can and should expect to feel the same way about everyone it happens to.
People are lacking basic human compassion. It is ridiculous…
