You might think that you've matured into a sophisticated young adult. Those 18 years being raised by your parents have made you into a person that can (sort of) successfully make it in the real world. You're living on your own, you decide when you come home at night, and you even pay for things. You might really think that you're grown up. Well, you're wrong. Being in college is almost identical to being a young child in kindergarten in more ways than one.
