Having been 18 years old only since April, I have commenced my journey down the windy road of making life decisions and, of course, it has not been easy. They (I don't quite know who- it just seems to be anyone older than me) say that your teenage years are the best of your life, partially due to the lack of responsibility, and whilst I thoroughly agree with this, this lack of responsibility does not mean that we don't still have to make difficult decisions and begin to carve ourselves a life in the scary reality of the adult world.
University or job
Equally, I don't force myself to go out clubbing just because of age expectations. A few months ago I went to a very crowded club in Birmingham and the combination of claustrophobia, scary people and feeling generally unsafe put me off going there again. At first I felt isolated and as though I was somewhat abnormal for not taking to clubbing, but then I realized that only a small percentage of my entire life would ever be spent at a nightclub, and I therefore wouldn't be missing out on much if I didn't go.
