I am sick and tired of my mom always being on my back! I know I'm luck to have a mother that actually cares about what I'm doing but I can't take it!!!! She's constantly telling me to do this and do that. I always tell her that I am perfectly capable of doing things on my own without being told to but it seems like she never gets it! Why doesn't she get it? It seems pretty simple to me. I'm 16, for God's sake! I know when I have to take a shower and put away my clothes. It's so annoying to always be told what to do. I think she feels that if I actually do something it's because she told me so. But that's not it! I do things because I'm independent. Next year I'll be going to college. It's pretty obvious that I can live my life without being told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. ARGH! I'm not incompetent. Can't she understand that?
