So I guess I'm an adult now... legally anyway

Like the title implies, I've turned 18. Now I'm "legal", and not just "legal" in the sense like when your sixteen and you can date, and drive. Well I guess I am legal in part of that sense. I can buy dry ice, and vote, and hold puppies in the mall. Now I'm supposed to start worrying about the future. It sounds so ominous " the FUTURE" Like this day begins the rest of your life. It's rather frightening to me, this idea of the easiest part of my life ending (technically that doesn't end until may 22, thats graduation.) But still I'm really starting to think about my college, and my mission and ...LIFE! I mean I always knew it was coming, but now its coming! I started to get a little nervous and have the "Peter Pan" Syndrome. The colossal desire to "always be a boy and have fun." Luckily I watched the disney version of Peter Pan (the new one)
In the movie at the end Peter gives one line that gives resolution to the entire movie he says
" To live would be an awfully big adventure." And thats the truth. That line had never hit me that hard until a few days ago, so now looking ahead I'm excited for the road and the adventure ahead of me!
