Adam,
Congratulations on entering the next stage of your existance.
There's a lot more to come!

Make sure you register to VOTE, as whats going on now will effect you for the rest of your life!

Make sure you don't screw up too much, too early, plenty of time for that later, but make sure you screw up a little bit, as later it will be too late.

Don't take for granted that anyone over the age of 30 KNOWS what they're talking about, but listen to them anyway, and make your OWN decisions, just keep in mind that your decisions will have an impact on YOU, for the rest of your life!

Welcome to the clueless majority of the human race!

Adam,
Wonderful! Now you have to VOTE to make it worth while!
Most folks seem to forget that part.
Don't only vote, but pick someone you can get behind, or at least get behind someone that is against the same things you are.
One of the hardest things to do is to compromise on someone for public office, so most folks just beg off. Here are a couple of things that I've learned over the last 40+ years (remember what I said about those over 30?):

1. Very few of those that are actually qualified for the office will ever win.
2. Very few of those that have change as a platform ever really change anything.
3. There is no such thing as a "wasted" VOTE. Over time a wasted vote can cause some change, but you have to be patient.
4. If things stay the same, you as a young voter are most likely being screwed by us 30+ somethings for an intermediate gain for us.

Just the way of the world.

Vote and vote often! Get the others in your crew to do the same!

Congrats!!

I'll be turning 20 soon, so then I won't be a teenager anymore argh!
In my opinion, due to people at college generally being immature most of the time along with myself, I'd say 21 is the true adult age :)

I like: Programming, Gym, University
Music: House, Dubstep, D&B, Trance, Metal

Leastcomplicated,

A well aged woman is like a well aged wine.
You only get better.
I don't see any signs of Vinegar indicative of a spoiled vintage in your postings.
So savor the flavor, aroma, and neuances brought on by proper aging.
A young wine will get you drunk, but a well aged wine will transport those that can appreciate it.
