For those who are 18 and above.
What was your 18th birthday like?

I had just moved to Florida and went back to Georgia for my Graduation ceremony. My ex(who had broken up with me the day before we set out to Florida)bought me lunch as a sign she wanted to stay friends, i guess. Other than that, nothing special. Just hung out in the hotel with my dad playing video games.

How long did it take for you to acknowledge you're an adult now?

Not very long, but I have a rather childish personality in that I like to make jokes of almost everything unless it's a time to actually be serious.

For all.
Will/Did you move out immediately?
Nope.
Will/Did you have to act more mature or you already are?
Not really, I've always had a mixture of a child-like mentality and an old-person mentality...

I'm under eighteen C:
I don't think I'll be acting anymore mature than I already am. To me, turning 18 just means that you get to watch R rated movies and you get to drive a car. I don't think watching R rated movies would make my life any better and I get car sick in a vehicle... D:
I like being younger, because I don't have as much responsibility. :D
I also wouldn't move out immediately because I love my family! :'D

First of all, I still consider myself 17 and I'm near 20

It's weird hearing stories about how girls around my age are dating guys that are close to 35

Did I move out right away?

Listen kiddies, I was on my own when I left for college at 16. At 18 I was working construction. I stopped by a tobacco shop and bought cigars (for the first time legally, but you don't get carded when you know how to buy real cigars) and my older sister and I had some beers at home. That was my 18th birthday.

You feel like an adult now? Seriously? I'm 30, a military veteran, have traveled the world and have been married and divorced and I am STILL learning shit about life. I'll let you in on a little secret: If you think turning 18 makes you an adult, you are just as far from being an adult as you ever were. Life is a process and a date on the calendar doesn't suddenly make you a man. Welcome to real life.

my dad bought me three six packs of beer and I had my best friend come over. Other than that, nothing special happened. I found out that responsibility sucks.

Turning 18 wasn't a big thing for me as I had already done everything that you could legally do at 18. Like sure you could now buy tobacco, but I had already done it and tried it. I got drunk with friends on my 18th, something I had also already done. Also I was actually a major dick to my parents on my 18th birthday if I remember right too. Not my proudest moment.

Anyways, it took me a long time past my 18th birthday to feel like an "adult". I think I'm only just now getting there quite frankly.

I turned 18 at the beginning of my Senior year, which is kind of a big deal well sort of?
I graduate this Monday, which is really weird to me. It took quite a while for it to sink in. For example, I can do things a minor couldn't and get in trouble for my actions. On my birthday I went to my favorite places, such as the local arcade and such. I act more maturely to adult like situations, but when I'm with friends I could totally be compared to a 13 year old. haha. I didn't immediately move out since I was attending high school. Once I graduate I'm out of here like Speed Racer. lol.

Lets see...

The day was normal, did the usual stuff, considering it was a school day. I forgot what I did for dinner, probably went out. That's about it.

No one still considers me an adult and I'm 21. I can't stand my family cause of that. But, it's not like I'm ready for a lot of responsibilities anyways.

I didn't have the traditional 18th birthday. I don't like the idea of dancing with 18 men and getting 18 roses, and stuff. Mine was a catered pool party; nothing very fancy, yet super fun.

As for acknowledging my being an adult... I think it happened before I turned 18. I've been acting in an adult-like manner before my debut. I don't know if it's because I'm the eldest child, or because I entered university two years prior to turning 18

Living on your own is a luxury. If you can't afford it, don't do it. Until you are financially stable, I suggest staying with your parents.
The movies and TV make it out like moving out of your parents house as soon as you're 18 is the norm, but it's far from the truth and is not a good idea for most teenagers finally turning 18. I wouldn't suggest it unless you're moving into a dorm or have a sufficient amount of money saved up for at least a few months rent, plus food and have secure employment.
