I'm 15 years old, but I forget most of the time. I skipped first grade, they'd taken me out because I could read well, or something. Most people don't know. They assume I'm their age too. Most of my friends are 17, or... some other number, distant from 15. Still, I can't get my license, I can't get into an R-rated movie... apparently I'm not supposed by be playing Quake III without parental consent.

Chicks don't dig younger guys, adults don't respect younger people; anyone who doesn't know me, but knows my age, will always be biased. It can be rather frustrating. Everyone's always been older than me, and sometimes I wonder if that's what made me so fucked up. Can you relate? Can you imagine being who you are, but always being younger? Probably not. Maybe this is blind youth talking.

I'm 15. How did this happen?
