It's going to be a big change for you but with a little common sense, you will be fine. Be observant and watch what's going on around you. Remember where you came from and admit to yourself that you are a little out of place in the big city. Don't try too hard to be cool and popular. Much better to have a couple good friends who have your best interest at heart. Stay away from the people who will get you in trouble! You know who they are. Good luck!

there are a whole lot of reasons for breaking out at that point. Vegas is dry. Vegas has strange pollens. Stress...Being your age.

That stuff happens to us all. The first thing you do is try and out wait it. Couple of months it gets better or it don't. If it don't you run off to the dermatologist. The Doc fixes it or not. If not you go down to the local health food store and start trying their cures.

By the time you are done with this you will be a couple of years older and will outgrow it.

Hang tight, keep trying and it always gets better...one way or another.

Sixteen. However my three daughters did not get theirs until they were eighteen.

It is customary around here at 16 as this is strictly a car town - you can't walk anywhere. Many parents go for it as continuously driving a teenager around is a pain. If there are younger kids involved you can also use the teen as a chauffeur.

There are also restrictions on sixteen year old drivers.

Some on major streets...but not very much. Generally an impractical way to get around in that part of town. Bicycles still work locally. Longer haul you can use the Bus. The busses all have bike racks on the front.
