So my mother got angry at me today for being such a lazy klutz at home and she said that she will "ban" me from entering our house once I reach 18 years old. She told me that the reason for that proposal is that she thinks I will be a full-fledged adult if I get to find my own housing at 18 and if I get to tend for myself at 18: doing laundry, cooking meals, managing time.
Instead of feeling excited, I feel rather lonely. Come on. I would not let go of the house I am situated in for about 16 years!
Do you think I should be happy or not?

I think your mom is being a bit unreasonable. Are you helping out with chores and stuff right now? Maybe she is just frustrated. Sometimes parents get upset if they feel their kids aren't doing enough.
I would try to help out where you can. If you can get a job and make a little money, help pay some bills. Show them you are responsible.
I don't know how people can just kick their kids out as soon as they hit 18, but I do know it does happen.2
