    Follow my lead, let's make a list of things you thought as a kid or kids think about when they imagine being older that are sooooo not true. You'll get the hang of it.

    100. Adults don't have bed times.
    99. Being independent and on your own is awesome
    98. Driving is fun
    97. Turning 18 means you're an adult.
    96. Having a girlfriend/boyfriend is awesome (giggle)
    95. Credit cards make you happy
    94. Wrestling is not silly.

    i had a million ideas earlier but i apparently dropped them from my brain. So I call on YOU PEOPLE to continue the list. GO!!!!

    Adults actually don't have bed times.

    Being independent and on your own is awesome.

    Driving definitely can be fun (I mean they have sports and games that revolve around it don't they?).

    Turning 18 does mean you are an adult, some people just forget to actually become one.

    Have a gf/bf is pretty awesome.

    I'll agree that this one is silly.

    Yeah this one too.

    Stop destroying my dreams. I have a bed time now. If I dont get to sleep at a certain time to get my 8 hours before classes and labs I teach, I feel like my body is trying to destroy itself. A friend of mine agreed with me with the driving thing as well. We try to get other people to drive us places whenever possible. Plus she lives at home again after living on her home and she says she loves not having the bills and home maintenance and crap. Maybe only my friends should comment on this thread....

    I remember telling my uncle that he was over the hill [old] on his 25th birthday. Later, I realized that 20 something was still young but mid 30s seemed old. Then, anything over 40 seemed old and 30 something didn't seem so bad... Now, it would be nice to be 40 again.

    I also thought ellemmennoh was a letter.

    86. Going to work was better than going to school.
    85. Not working and not going to school would be the greatest thing. (I had quit my job 3 months ago... I couldn't find a job until like last week... in a damn fast-food place. But let me tell you, not working and being home ALLL THE TIMMMME was just driving me insane.)

    71. Life's one big party when you grow up
    70. You are smarter than your parents


    My teenage daughter informs me that anyone over 18 is "old." I remember thinking the same thing when I was her age.

    I WISH I was 18 =(

    78. It would be cool to be a farmer. I could live off the land and never have to rely on other humans.
    77. My dog was as smart as Lassie and I should follow him anywhere whenever he whined as if he had something important to say. (Actually, while this never turned out quite as cool as Lassie, it wasn't that bad.)
    76. Tieing yourself to the seat of a swing is exactly like wearing seatbelts. You just start swinging, yell "Watch this!", and let go. Yea! No hands! (This probably could turn out pretty cool with a simple addition of a shoulder harness. As it was, it wound up being my daughter's first broken arm. Her second came from the monkey bars.)

    75. After noticing that the prices of items tend to get lower over time, I thought it would be prudent to wait until the price of a gameboy dropped to 1 penny before buying it.
    74. The best way to get a girlfriend is to confess your love up front
    73. It is possible to build a working airplane out of materials found in the woods

    69. It's ok if someone dies at the age of 40 or above, because they are too old and lived their life.
