feeling naive

The more time I am increasingly spending with "adults" lately, I am finding that I am such a terribly, terribly naive person. I feel like I haven't experienced anything yet. There are ladies in my class, my mom's age, and closer to mine, who tell these stories that just SHOCK me.

There are girls younger than me who are having babies. Some of them don't even know who the father is. There are people who have had felony drug and violence charges. Some of them were in jail for a long time. Girls who prostitute on the weekend... and get caught for it. Some of them go out every single night and get drunk, high and who knows what else. It is just so startling to me to see that this is the norm for so many people. I don't know how people can live like this.

I am so truly glad that I have never experienced any of these things. I have always been a goody-two-shoes for my entire life. It wasn't out of force, though, this is just the way that I am. Doing "bad" things always scared me, and felt uncomfortable to me. I guess I have just been very lucky.


  1. oh my goodness. i am EXACTLY the same way. i've never had any desire to do drugs or drink excessively (never been drunk or even tipsy!) or do dangerous stuff. goody-two-shoes by nature. that's what our rap group will be called. you know, instead of naughty by nature.

    do you live in ashton, pa. i think i got an email from you for a christmas card, but there was no name on it! and i'm just making sure!!

  2. hey girlie! Nothing wrong with being a little naive, I wish I was still. There is a lot of bad in this world unfortunately. Just have to make it a little better one person at a time :)

  3. I'm so glad that I've never ended up prego either! lol jk. It's crazy because I had 4 best friends growing up in elementry school but I went my own way at the beginning of highschool. They all got pregnant by 18. It makes me soooo happy that I decided to make other friends. I mean, I've never been a goody-two-shoes but I think I turned out pretty darn good. haha
