Oh my god, I am an "oldy". I use to think people over 24 were old. I am so glad I am an oldy. Things will definately get better for you, kid... or not. Nah, just kidding, they will get better. Teenage sucks. You don't want to peak in high school. I, however, am not sure I will peak at all.
Because i like my age...i can go anywhere i want...now my family has gone off the deep end and talking about marriage...yeah right that isn't happening any time soon...and then work...and I want to travel the world and see everything before i have a family and a job...I mean really travel like live in a culture...that would be amazing
I'd never want to go back to being in my teens again. It was fine (enough) while I was there. My teen years were good. Still, I always just wanted to get past those years and be on my own. Even with having generally good teen years, I always sort of saw those years as kind of "marking time" until I got to where I wanted to be.
I am one of the few people that probably does not want to be a teenager again. I appreciate the freedom that comes with the responsibilites of working and having my own money. Being a teen was just not the best time in my life I guess .
I was almost offended, at 29, to be called an oldie. *sigh* Then, when you said you were a teen, I understood. For someone your age, thinking of being nearly 30 is like me imagining I'm 80! Davinagirl3 has a great point. Many people 'peak' around 18 years old and spend the rest of their lives wishing for that feeling of popularity and importance they once had. For me, life really began after I got out of the weird microcosm of high school.
Us old folks aren't all bad - some of us have sage advice to give, though others are admittedly rather cantankerous and unpleasant.
Yeah..Medicinal Potatoes that ether : A. Look like Various Fungus sometimes used for something else or B. Shaped like a little white power that disappears in various glasses of different fluids that camouflage themselves with the current fluid leaving no noticeable taste nor smell nor reaction to the liquid...
I am thirty and my youngest sister just turned twenty-five! She thinks anyone my age that has memories of the eighties is old, but I told her life goes by faster as you get older. It is hard to believe I am thirty because it seems like not that long ago I was just twenty-three! However, I am happy being thirty and much calmer than I was in my early twenties, which is something that I would not change for the world.
Did no one wish you? Happy Birthday! May you have many more.
I know what you mean when you say the older you get the less you know, because the older i get, the more i realise all the wonderful stuff out there that i still need to know and learn about.
I have loved being whichever age I have been. Does anyone want to hazard a guess how old I am? (This i think is fraught with peril, but then with age comes courage; it should have been wisdom; but sod wisdom)
I do find I no longer take my hair color for granted. While I one time never thought about it, these days with each year I still have it I'm grateful. (Kind of pathetic, I know, but wisdom in its own way. ) ....but all this age talk has strayed away from Miss M's original purpose.
