That's right, I made a list. Why would I do this? Because I was curious what I could do, now that I'm seventeen.
1. Buy video games that are rated 'M' for mature
This is rather exciting, even though I don't play video games :)
2. Buy dry ice
I heard this while eavesdropping at the State Fair, so who knows if it's true. If it is, what would I do with dry ice? We already have fourteen inches of snow here!
3. File for legal emancipation
No thanks. I don't have a job, I don't have a car, so filing for emancipation would just leave me in one of the worst positions possible. I'll just stay at home with my parents and little sister for another year (or however long it is until I go to college)
4. Get married in some states
Thanks, but no thanks. If early emancipation freaks me out now, marriage will only do a better job of it. I'm not ready to settle down and get married yet.
5. Watch R-rated movies
This I will definitely take advantage of!
6. Curfew laws don't apply to me in some states
I don't go out much, and if I do, it's no later than 10 PM unless it's New Years.
7. Can be tried as an adult in court
I don't plan on using this at all.
8. Work full-time without my parent's consent
I can't even get a part-time job. Besides, I have to go to school. What were these law makers thinking?
9. Buy spray paint
Okay, I'm not one of those hooligans that goes out and spray paints gang symbols everywhere, but this does sound rather exciting.
10. Join the Marines
11. Become an organ donor
What does the 'Organ donor' thing on my driver's license mean then? Wasn't I already an organ donor? Or does that mean that if my friend needs a lung or a kidney that I can donate mine (given that we have the same blood type and everything)?
12. I'm going to add my own now:
Scare the crap out of my parents because they think they're getting old now
All because I got a year older :)
Any who, thank you for dropping by today. Have a good week! Now, I'm off to go celebrate my Date of Birth in one way or another...
Thanks for reading!
