July 11th is coming up. That’s a special day for me. Why, you might ask? Well it will be my eighteenth birthday! I have been looking forward to for ages now. It is like THE best birthday a teenager could have. You are finally an adult! You don’t have a curfew and you can do whatever you please (as long as it doesn’t break the law). I can buy a lottery ticket, vote, and go to clubs. There are other things I have in mind that I can do too like the fact that I’m going to college and a free slurpee from 7-Eleven. It’s so exciting. It is also an age where I will be legal. I can be tried as an adult. It can be scary to become an adult so fast when in the inside I feel like a kid. Turning 18 can be a good and a bad thing. The good thing is that your parents won’t always be on your back and they treat you as an adult. The bad thing is you have more responsibilities. I have no idea if I’m ready for those huge responsibilities yet but I can’t pause life.
