I tried going to the gym but I need to buy a membership. Not a problem right? Well I also need to be a legal adult. I recently turned 18 so again that's not a problem right? Well apparently in Alabama and in specifically only Alabama and Nebraska you're considered a minor till you're 19. That means I'd need to get my dad involved but I'd also have to explain to him that I snuck out to go to the gym twice. He likely wouldn't care too much but he'd tell my mom and my mom is way too overprotective + she's a mash freak. The stress from involving my parents makes me want to just ghost the gym, continue walking though the neighborhood, and just buying my own equipment over time but I want the social experience of going to a gym. Do I have the right idea or am I just being a pussy?
