17 is a boring age. Nothing interesting happened when I turned 17. At 16 I got my drivers license. At 18 I will be come a legal adult, but at 17 nothing interesting happens. 17 is the age to mature and prepare yourself to become an adult. At 16 most people are still very immature and do not know how to act properly. When I turned 17 people started to expect me to start acting like I am an adult. Also when I turned 17 I had to start to face real life situations. I had to start deciding what I want to do for the rest of my life. I have to decide where I want to spend the next four years at and what I want to learn about for those four years. A lot of big, life changing decisions are made at 17. During my year of being 17 so far, I have matured from my 16 year old self and I have started to make adult decisions. 17 is a year of growing up and becoming who you want to be for the rest of your life.
