    When I graduated college and got my first "big girl job" at 21. Came with a salary and benefits. My parents told me congrats and my dad let me know I'm off his company health insurance plan at the end of the month. Thanks dad :D

    On my 17th birthday when I enlisted in the Air Force. Had a "you're on your own kid" realization at the swearing in.

    It happened when I was only 16. However, I didn't realize it until I was around 21 when I was asked a question that pointed me to that moment.
    Of course I still don't always act like one.

    imo we all still got the little kid in there and the angsty teenager and the 20 something figuring their way in the world we just get new layers as years go by but the old stuff is always there
    this is true

    When I was an actual authority at my job. I was teaching new techniques to people who have been doing their job for 20 years.

    Then I decided to quit my job and go back to graduate school. I am now a broke college student again hanging out with people who are 10 years younger than me

    At age 30 when I realized I hated my job (HR) and decided to go back to college to become a Veterinarian. Had to do 2 more years of undergrad to get a BS in Biology and then 4 years of Vet College, and I had to pay my own way this time.

    I moved out on my own at 20 but I didn't feel like an actual adult until 22 and graduating from college. At that point, I didn't make a lot of money but I had enough saved to feel somewhat secure. I remember taking a short trip just a couple hours from home and thinking if my car broke down, I would call a tow truck and pay for it...instead of calling my dad. I felt fully adult at last.
