For the record, the "am I an adult now" question was mostly a joke. I feel mildly more grown up, but that's not a huge deal. I'm 21 for chrissake, I've been paying my own bills for a while now.
I don't wear a hat. Does that make a difference?
I didn't buy a car in high school because I inherited my parents '93 GMC safari van. I drove that shit into the ground. 240,000 miles and she blew a head gasket--myself and the parents decided it wasn't worth the money or time to bother fixing it. New car time.
Besides, I was far too busy putting together a guitar rig that was too big for anything I would ever play in during high school. I may not have bought a car, but I spent a good $5,000 buying guitars and amps (I was also a fat, stupid kid in high school. coincidence? maybe).
