Turning 18: Friday, columnist becomes an adult
Remember being a little kid and always wanting to be looked at as "grown up," or treated like one? I remember those days. It definitely doesn't feel like it was that long ago.
I still remember the feeling of freedom I got when my parents finally let me leave the block on my bike, or let me stay at a friend's house for the whole weekend. The feeling of growing up is something a kid always looks forward to -- at least until you actually get there.
