I’m Basically an Adult

Well that is a strange thought. Tonight marks the last day before my 18th birthday.

I’ve always been really mature from my age – probably starting since around 6th grade – but the thought of legally being considered an adult freaks me out. I’ve been in college for three semesters at this point but now that I’m about to turn 18, everything suddenly feels so much more intense.

I don’t want to freak myself out so I’m going to stop. Age is just a number and that’s it. It’s all hype. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll wake up tomorrow and be the same guy I was today. Plus, I have to turn 18 eventually so it might as well be now considering everyone I know is turning 19 or 20…

    I felt the same on my 18th birthday. I was so scared of growing up, scared that I would have to behave like an adult and everything. Turns out that it didn’t feel any different. I was expecting a drastic change, but growing up came naturally. I didn’t feel like I was changing but now that I look back I changed a lot in the past 2 years.
    Anyway, happy 18th birthday!

    1. Thanks Kariannelamothe! Glad to know it’s not just me who feels this way. So now that I am technically 18 years old, I can attest to the fact that I feel the same way I felt an hour ago when I wrote this post. I’ll just let nature shape out my future. Anyways, thanks again. Good night!
