Howdy, Stranger!

You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!

So, when did you find out you were an adult?

It finally hit me when I realized I don't have health insurance. Time to start padding corners and stop banging my head in to things just to see what it would feel like.

    When I was 19 years old and we found out that we were having a baby, with no health insurance. Time to grow up!

    @Teramona health insurance sucks, but when I was in LA I paid roughly $90/mo for coverage through Anthem for their hip young "Tonik" plan. The coverage was absolutely horrible, but had anything really bad happened that would have otherwise cost $1000s and $1000s it would have been worth it. I never once had to use it, and I purposely avoided pursuing health issues that would have cost less than my premium to deal with but it was worth having. Now if you plan on being pregnant at some point in the future, be picky about your plan and read all the fine print.

    The only time you ever need insurance is when you don't have it. That's something a business law professor used to tell me.

    Per conversation topic, I became an adult when I turned 25. I don't know exactly why, but essentially it was when I stopped just taking care of myself and others begin to depend on me.

    What is adult? Is this a nickname for a new steam update or something?

    Biologically: When I turned 18
    Socially: When I got smacked in the face with schooling debt that will stick with me years after I get a real job. (I haven't even started my new education yet!) and/or when I started paying taxes
    Mentally: I don't think this will ever happen, this however is reliant on whether there is a such thing as mentally being an 'adult'

    Allow me to rephrase...

    When did you first realize that your parents and goverment were no longer legally obligated to keep you alive?
  • IlriyasIlriyas The Syrupy Canadian Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Parents: When I was almost kicked out of my house two years ago for reasons I can't quite remember
    Government: Never, as long as I pay my taxes the government is legally obligated to make sure I don't die. Ever.

    It's a blur for me. I still don't feel like I've gone full adult. I pay for most of my bills but I still get to wake up whenever I feel like it. Maybe when I get a job I'll feel like an adult.

    I live in Never Never Land so I don't have to grow up. Though I did just open an IRA so maybe I'm an adult now.

    When I was about 20 and my hair suddenly became long. Isn't that how it works for everyone?

    When my mom had a massive brain injury when I was 15, and I suddenly became the person keeping myself and my brothers fed, clothed, and going to school (mostly).

    I am starting to feel almost like an adult now that my wife and I bought our first house.
