About This Quiz

Being an adult isn't the easiest thing in the world. The older you get, the more things you are expected to learn how to do to be a certified adult. Sure, it kind of stinks when you are so young that people might tell you what to do much of the time, but at least you aren't expected to have a lot of life skills. 

Your mother is probably going to make your dinner and do your laundry, at least most of the time, and if you get a flat tire, your dad is going to be the one changing it. The point is, you aren't going to have the same life skills when you are 18 as you will when you are 50, it's just part of growing up.

You might learn a lot in school, but there are certain things you only learn through experience and the only way you get that is by living. We think that if you answer a few questions in this quiz, we will be able to tell by the number of life skills you have whether you are still a rookie or a grizzled veteran. If you do well, you might be able to put this on your resume, assuming you have one, that is.
