It was... Alright. I think that was the year my best friend decided to hang out with his dad because he didn't realize it was my birthday. Make sure to go to a good parlor to get it done, having your friends do it has a way higher chance of getting it infected, which is not difficult to do to begin with.

PS - when you turn 18, call me!

18 years old is a milestone in life. I wouldn't look at it as such a bad thing.

I'm turning 18 in May 16, so in like 2 weeks... I'm not as stoked as I am frightened. I further pass my amazing childhood while simultaneously near the dreaded responsibilities that await in ambush ahead. It's not a good feeling for me, especially since I have taken the liberty of learning under the wise Transcendentalists in the 18th & 19th centuries (Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Emerson etc.) & due to them & their philosophies, I have grown loathsome at modern society

Did you read Thoreau's essay on Civil Disobedience? That essay falls in line so well with man's inherent responsibility to govern themselves first and foremost before any unjust authority tells you what you can or can not do.

Yes, a fine piece of literature. It was actually the first thing I read from him. After that & reading Walt Whitmans "Leaves of Grass", especially "Song of Myself" I began researching others with the same wisdom.

How funny should I be introduced to Henry David Thoreau as a child when I was reading a well-written childrens book titled "The Fledgling", in which case I think I still have it. Have you read "What The Bleep Do We Know?" very great book for opening the possibilities of living your life. After watching the movie, I felt obligated to buy the book... which is now abused due to frantic highlighting, bookmarks, & excessive foot notes

I've seen the documentary on it. Was pretty good, but I think a lot of the theories attempt to modernize themselves with science, however in doing so they can only be classified as pseudo science at this point. But I do support the idea of the 'universe' as we know it can be considered an accumulation of consciousness. Much of which goes into a deeper branch of Judaism which I don't associate myself with called Kaballism.

Anyways, I don't want to go further off topic so let's end the discussion on this forum.

It wasn't a big deal for me. Nothing to get nervous about. Just continue to live life to its' fullest. Whether you are going to find a job, go to college, or do whatever, you will continue to learn lessons from life experiences. There will be ups and downs, but that's just part of the experience.

Only thing that I actually remember about my 18th birthday was that it was the day that I received a letter of acceptance from my college. I was quite excited about that, so that's probably why I remembered nothing else about that day.

21 Is a sad day... drinking gets more dull after that.
My 18th wasn't great. I got a full time job a couple days later I believe.

~ anyway how was turning 18 like for you?

Eighteen meant I was going to be seen as an adult, and would live on as one the moment I touched that milestone and beyond. As in, no more shit. Turning eighteen was just a way for the modern socierty I live in to say "Congratulations! Now we can send you to prison!"


~ how do you feel about turning 18?

..... Probably happy, because that meant I was getting closer to graduating.
