What is it really anyway?

I realized recently, that I'm going to have to change my name. I don't know if I want to change my name. I like my name. Why am I the only one who has to change it? I'm gonna have to change all of my credit cards, all of my memberships, my checks, my business cards..... I'm gonna have to go to the sec of state for my drivers license too. Man, I HATE the Sec of State. There's long lines, they have too little hours, and most of them are unqualified; it can't get any worse. You know the last time I went there I had to sit in line for an hour, complete a written motorcycle test, sit in line again, hand them my license, and then wait 20 minutes for them to finish doing paperwork. AND THEN when they finally brought me all the paperwork, they asked my dad to sign something for me. We both squinted at this lady with that confused/angry face and asked why she needed my dad's signature. Turns out that they thought I was applying for a drivers license. She snickered and said I looked young. I wished I'd said "you must be getting old." Then she HANDED ME MY DRIVERS LICENSE BACK, gave me a certificate of endorsement, and I left frustrated.

I hate it when people think I'm really young. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably love it when I'm older but this lady thought I was 16. I was 21 at the time. Another lady at a gas station asked for my ID when I used a credit card once. She laughed at me and said she would've guessed 15 and again, I was 21. I'm 22 and I want to look like I'm 22. I don't want to go to meetings and have people look at me and wonder "why is there a child in my office?" Looking like you're 15 doesn't help the career much.
