I'm old enough to go do whatever I want really. The only reason I'm not considered an adult is because I'm a student.. but I'm moving into an apartment 2 hours away this Saturday so not all is too terrible... as long as he just doesn't randomly show up like he did with the last house I lived in.
My brother never calls or visits and my dad wonders why. Ya think he would have figured out by now what he's doing wrong. My mother is even worse.
