How do I become a respectable adult?
It seems dumb, but I'm 18 years old, 19 in April, and I have a lot of frustrations about being taken seriously at my age. I'm not exactly a bad kid, I just want to make sure that I'm taken seriously in life and not affected by my age still. I try hard, but not always succeed. I'm polite, but do not accept when people treat me badly for invalid reasons. Is there something else I should learn?
