Really, are you going out into the real world :O<br />
If your going to college its not that much different from high school if not then I don't know never been. <br />
But its no big deal unless your parents are kicking you out in which case you may have a problem.

You know, age isn't really as big of a deal as people think it is. Nothing magical happens at the age 18. The thing is you can do whatever you want. Sure you get the RIGHT to vote when you're 18, but that doesn't mean you HAVE to vote. Heck, you can even stay in high school if you really want to. Just flunk all your classes, and you can be a high school senior for the rest of your life if you want. I didn't get my driver's license until I was 18 (just a few months ago, actually). And you can even go the other way and act older than you are. You can drink if you want. It may be illegal, but that can't stop you. I'm definitely not encouraging that you do the things I've mentioned by any means, I'm just saying your life is up to you and your choices, not your age. You may be physically and legally 18, but that doesn't mean a thing. You can act two years old if you want to, or you can act 85. Don't let your age define you.

I just turned 21 and now I have no excuse for not growing up!!!! Up until your twenty you can say " Hey give me a break I'm still a teenager and still learning the ropes." I sure don't feel 21 and sometimes I remind myself just how old I am. Now that I think about it, it's no different from any age. I still have to ask my parents for advice, I still like to have fun, etc...
