The day I turned 18 was the day I thought my life would change. You are considered a legal adult at this point in age. With becoming an adult you get the privilege to vote, get married, buy lottery tickets, and can finally make your own decisions. When I finally turned 18 I was excited to finally be able to set my own rules and buy my first lottery ticket. But I soon realized still being in high school that is in school related activities it is considering gambling when buying a lottery ticket. I still had setting my own rules to look forward to though! So the first night after turning 18 I went out to hangout with my friends I told my mom I would be back whenever and proceeded to walk out the door. As I got in my car and started it I got a text saying my curfew was 12:30. Guess 18 isnt as great as everyone thinks it is.
