I did my taxes for the first time by myself this year. I have to say I am pretty stoked about that. That's a ritual now, a passage into adulthood. Some experience it earlier and some later. I was in the later category. I read Joseph Campbell off and on and he talks about the coming of age rituals. We don't have those anymore, at least not in the way that we used to. There are some though that still exist as a way to measure your coming of age and your entrance in to the tribe. More coming soon.
