Not ready to grow up yet.

My parents are planning a road trip to go look at colleges over spring break. We're looking at top sailing schools and some others, but I can't help but start to get defensive when they talk about it with me. It's so much pressure. I don't know what I want to do with my life yet. They expect me to get into some big shot Ivy League and be successful from then on. I'm not as gifted as they think I am. I'm not the 'daughter beyond her years.' I don't know why it bothers me so much, I just hate thinking about it. I just don't want to grow up yet. I don't want to disappoint anyone.
