Legally Human

Today I turn 18. I'm now legally human. I'm not a "minor" anymore. But I don't feel 18, I feel like I'm still 15. [Hence,when I was 15 I still feel 12,well I guess I'm 3 years delayed] When I look in the mirror I don't see an eighteen year old. I feel that I'm not ready to grow up. In the States 18 is the time when some kids starts to be independent but I could never see myself in that situation. I guess at 18 I should be mature but I'm not. I'm still a kid but I'm now nearing the end of my "teenhood" phase of life but I can't see myself evolved to a young adult anytime soon. Maybe when I turned 21 I will feel 18.
I never celebrated my birthday with a party. I know some kids beg their parents to throw them a party but I did not feel that urge to ask my parents that. Actually for sometime they were encouraging me to have a birthday party but I decline. I just don't want to do it. I don't like experiencing the hassles of preparing food and other stuff and cleaning up. I just want to celebrate my birtday in a simple way. I also never treat my classmates, I'm not being selfish or what but the times are hard today I don't want to make any unnecessary expenses. Plus if they are real friends they don't have to pressure me to treat them.
Birthday wishes:

* No more asthma attacks [So far this I did not have any serious attack of asthma]
* Good grades [I hope that I and my class will do good on the activities fo the finals]
* Peaceful home[I just hope my family will not face big problems in the near future]
* Good economy [sounds traditional? but that is true I am really hoping for the best for the Philippines]
* Away from harm [like holduppers,snatchers,juvenile deliquents,dengue etc...]
