There's A Lot Of No's Before A Yes.

So today I had an experience that I have never done before: I went on a job search! Not a little job search either. I ended up going to sixteen different places and asking if they were hiring. I also plan on checking out a few more places, too. Although the experience was very freeing to be independent and have the realization that I'm finally growing up, I have to admit it was quite frustrating. I'm only seventeen (and a half) and for almost every place I went in and asked if they were hiring, they told me that I had to be eighteen. Out of the sixteen places I looked at, only probably about five of them could give me applications to fill out. The rest of them had to politely tell me I was too young.
Too young. I hate those words. It's funny because when you are young all you want to be is older. But when you're older, well... you know how it goes. I know I should enjoy my years of being a teenager while I have them, but it just seems like I can't sometimes. I want to move on from high school and start my life. Leave all of my silly, immature peers behind and become an independent, mature young adult. The thought of having a job makes me so excited. It's funny because a year ago the last thing in the world I wanted was a job, but now everything is so different. I would kill to have a job. Amazing how much I have matured in just a year.
Hope you all are doing just lovely.
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. Some of you mentioned that my new blog font was too hard to read (which I totally agree with). I kept the same font for this post and last post, except I enlarged the print. Does it make it any easier to read? I would appreciate your feedback so very much!
