They start when you are young and start doing simple chores around the house like sweeping the floor and washing the dishes. Once you can complete those tasks with ease, you are given more work to do and the cycle continues. Eventually, when you are an older child, more decision making and conversational skills are added into the mix. As I begin to transition into adulthood, I realize where some of my passing points were on my road to being considered an adult. The first point I remember is when I was finally allowed to drive the truck around our land by myself. When I was eight or nine, I learned how to drive.

    My first time at Cedar Point It was June 6th, 2016, the end of my eighth-grade year at TKMS, I woke up, at 5:30, jumped out of bed, got dressed, ate, and yelled at my mom to get in the car, all by 6:20. But of course we weren’t even close to ready, and we didn’t even need to leave until 7:30.
