Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, am I too immature for my age?"

Dear Carol, 

I'm starting high school and I'm worried I'm not mature enough. My friends and I like to giggle and have a lot of fun. Sometimes we act super silly. I'm nervous that the older high schoolers will look down on me." 

-High School Nerves 

Dear High School Nerves, 

When your school reopens, older high schoolers will be so focused on finally seeing each other again that they won't care what a few freshmen are giggling about. And no one is too old to have fun. I also bet that you'll enjoy finding your serious side. When you read books and watch TV and movies, sometimes you want to laugh but, other times, you want to take a deeper dive and learn and feel things, right?
