Time flies

When was the moment you realize you weren’t a little kid anymore (for those who aren’t)?

For me it was just a couple of days ago when my dad was telling me I need to get my permit.

I was at a school trip (FBLA nationals) in Chicago last week, and that was terrifying but I also felt to grown up and not like a kid anymore.
(I’m almost 16 and from the west btw. I was more than a thousand miles away from home)

I need mine too! I for the LONGEST time told myself I would never drive, but now I really want to learn. I’m so grateful I live in a small town (I’m from Phoenix, AZ so it is a little less scary to navigate here than where I’m from)

Probably for me when I started thinking “oh my gosh I can start working now!?!” when it was around my birthday and the earliest age you could start at!

I still can’t even work at the pet store yet they start hiring at 16 :frowning: I cried because we already have a cat and couldn’t get the cutest cat from our local store

I was about 14 maybe earlier everything just changed. More responsibility and at first it felt like a lot on my plate.

Tbh I don’t remember. But now, searching for a university, and deciding my career… I feel like my teenage era is coming to an end. I don’t really remember feeling like I stopped being a child in an abrupt way, but damn, entering adult life is way harder than becoming a teenager was.
