"hey you kids! get off my lawn!" in search of the fountain of youth...?
Posted 08 July 2010 - 07:00 PM
Nowadays, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic for my younger years when I could just go to school, homework would take less than an hour if anything, I had a car/could drive anywhere, laze at home all day, play video games all day, call up a bunch of friends and hang out all day, all without too much stress or worry. Now I feel a bit of a guilt for whenever I come home from work/class, sit on the couch, and try and play Halo 3 for hours on end. I mean, I could/should be doing something more productive, right? Like worrying about taxes, or how much I'm going to get on my paycheck/whether or not I'll be able to afford rent/groceries, figuring out loans, increasing my GPA...blah blah blah.
There are some nice things about growing older, though. Examples, college is a lot more fun than high school, I have my own place to live (well, with a roommate but still! haha), i get to decide a lot about my personal schedule, no curfew, get into 18+ concerts/stuffs, I...i don't know lol.
Now would be a good age to stay forever.
How is everybody else enjoying the aging process?

I stopped enjoying birthdays after I hit 21. Now I'm doing everything I can to retain my youth
Ya know, refusing to give up those childish loves in your life.
I don't miss my teenage years. I was too childish and stupid for my own good. I was also treated like a small child by my parental units. So, I guess I do enjoy the age I currently am right now.
Still a little worried what 40 is going to feel like.

i think after about 21-24, you start to feel the opposite. it really depends on what you're doing at the time
and how much you've achieved so far. i hated being a kid, but being about 19 again would probably be ideal for me.
still, there's plenty of good stuff about being in your early twenties, too, that i didn't have then. i dunno; it's human nature to never be completely pleased with what you have no matter how good it is.

If I had to pick an age I'd love to stay 19 forever, my first year of college... wonderful. Sure I'd lose the ability to drink but I don't drink enough to cause a fuss about it as is.
By 19 I had mellowed out to being the exact opposite of how I was as a kid, though I think some of the childish tendencies are still lingering in my behavior...
I'd be happy not having to pay bills, rent and worrying about the job market...sigh, it's so bad that I'm going back to school because I can't even find a job.

My doctor was commenting on how a few health problems that I'm dealing with (nothing serious, just annoying) usually don't crop up until guys are in their forties, whereas I'm still two years shy of that. Thanks, doc! I feel so much better now!
