Are you sure you want to do this, Haight? You do realize you are no longer allowed in the 'mature' section and anyone caught desiring you could be thrown into prison. *sigh* But, if that's how you want it.

You will have many more opportunities to feel old than to feel young. You are fortunate to still have your childhood. That's typically the best part of a person. The best happiness I've found is in the childlike moments. It has an important wisdom all its own that many people forget.
p.s. please don't be offended I use the word childhood. I teach music lessons to some really bright, gifted kids your age. I admire their gifts and wisdom, but respect them for their stage in late childhood as well. It's an important place to be.

Having met a few 40 year old teenagers I consider maturity to be a fluid concept.
The reason people sometimes miss being a teenager is that they miss having an excuse to act like one.

And I, sir, beg to differ. But a good theory...perhaps I'm the exception that proves the rule (out of interest, can someone explain what the hell that expression means? Without responding with a Google/Wikipedia link?)
It means that in order for there to be an exception, there must be a rule for it to be an exception to. Hence that there can be an exception proves the existence and validity of the rule.
It's a fairly obvious and well-documented logical fallacy.
