My Last Day as a Seventeen Year Old

Hello people of earth :)

So it is ten o clock as I am writing this and I am two hours away from becoming a legal adult. Exciting! Well, actually, if I'm being honest its not all that exciting because really whats going to change?

In the end I've been able to drive with a year, and I'll be honest I've already tasted alcohol so in the end the only real change to my life is that I'll be able to vote. In four years time. So I'm sitting here now imagining what my life will be like in two hours, when I hit the big 1-8 and become a legal adult.

I'm not imagining much of a difference.

I still see myself going to school, messing my bedroom and not wanting to tidy it, complaining about going to work on Saturdays and sleeping in past noon on Sundays, panicking about tests and all my friend/frenemy drama and still not being able to drink or talk about drinking in front of my parents, more specifically my mother, under pain of death.

Seriously, my mom is throwing me a little party in our house and no alcohol is permitted, I'm like the last of my friends to turn eighteen but its like nah! Bit ridiculous, don't you think?

But anyway I suppose the reason for this post is me contemplating my last legal day of childhood, in a few hours I am legally recognized as an adult, I don't imagine my mother will accept that though, I still hear her shouting at me to clean my room, do my homework and study for my tests and ringing me every time I go out to find out where I am. Sigh, life wont change much, will it?

Legally I'm to be an adult, unfortunately as the only child who also happens to be female I can't see my position as the baby of the family changing anytime soon. There are downsides to all things in life.

Any who,  c'est la vie! And life could be worse, I could be married to Tom Cruise.

So wish me a Happy Birthday and since so many people in my class share this birthday too, happy birthday to them and anyone else around the world who was born on this lovely day.
