Turning 18 can be an exciting time. You are leaving behind your life as a child and growing into an adult. If you live in the United States, your 18th birthday marks your first day as an adult legally. Being a grown-up can come with new rights as well as a bunch of new responsibilities.
As a new adult you are now able to: vote, work full time, manage your income, live on your own, choose to go to college in another state, serve on a jury, run for elected office including Governor of Massachusetts, make a will and buy, sell and own assets including cars, houses, stocks & bonds.
