Still looking for that perfect time to realize I’m an adult. I work in the bar industry with booze all the time, and I still haven’t figured out that I am an adult but I’m having a lot of fun doing it.

When I had children. It’s only when you have to care for somebody else do you become an adult. Before that, when all you have to care for is yourself you’re still really a child.

When I was 18 I got kicked out of the house. My parents said: “You’re out of here, we’re moving to Havasu.” So I packed up, joined the spirits industry, and have had a great time ever since.

I guess it would be when I bought my first car on my own without needing a co-signer. Not having to rely on my parents or family really made me feel grown up.
