    If you ask most people, they will say that you reach adulthood at the age of 18. I believe that I started this transition at 16. Two months before my 16th birthday on a Saturday morning, my mom and I got into the car and she drove me around to the various stores, restaurants, and recreation centers where I told her I wouldn’t mind working. Before I left her in the car she told me that to get a job I must confidently walk up to the nearest employee and ask for the manager. I still had no idea…

When I first finished school, I was faced with this choice, as most are. And although it would have been convenient to simply…
