    I am 26 but I have never fit in with people my own age. I have always connected with older people. Probably because they are wiser and have more advice to give. Or maybe it's because I'm just not cool. I would like to make more griends my own age and feel like I really belong...

    August 1st

    I am 26 years old. I don't really feel like I'm 26 years old, due to I haven't really gotten to experience life as much as most people that are my age, but I am happy for what life has brought me. I was born on August 1st, 1981. I'm a summer baby! Unlike most people, I love to...

    26 Going On 40

    I am 26, and if I need a remider I can just ask my twin brother how old he is,  but I feel like I am going on 40.  I don't have the fun I used to when I was younger, but don't have the worries of someone older, this is a really weird age to be.

    Inspiration...

    I am 26 years old, and I am so confused about life. I think I'm going through a quarter-life crisis. Time flies, it's hard to grasp things sometimes. I live inside my head, I am a dreamer. Sometimes I feel like I'm floating. I just wished I could just do what I want...

    A Rough 26 Years So Far

     Although I'm at the relatively young age of 26, I feel that I am so much older. I have to say I've lived a pretty colorful life so far. I don't even know where to begin. Let's see...Parents divorced when I was five,and still continued an on again/ off again relationship for the...

    I Almost Missed This One!

    I'll be 27 in TWO DAYS...  I'm really not ready.  Somehow 27 feels so much more adult in my head that 26.  Like at 26 I could drink from a bong all night and still go to work in the morning, but at 27 if I woke up with a new tattoo I'd have to hide it...

    Allegedly...

    I'm only 26 - its not so old... is it?! My image of being in your mid-twenties seems like a great age to be to me  - yet the reality seems to be that I'm in some kind of weird limbo between middle age and youth. where did my ideals and identity go? the clock is ticking!

    If It Makes You Happy, Then Why Are You So Sad?

    26 for almost a year. The realization that I have an 18 month old (who is amazing) and a great husband of 2.5 years (almost 9 together) is all reality but only in flashes. I'm feeling completely disconnected from my life. And have been since I was 17 and lost my father to lung...

    I turned 26 in July this year (2008). Neil Young said "old enough to repay but young enough to sell". 26 feels like a no-man's land, the beginning of the twilight of the 20s. Although I'm having a momentary "where am I metaphorically speaking" moment...

    And Hating It

    The older I get, the worse I feel. I wish I could go back 10 years and start all over again. Make some better choices. Oh well, I'm here now and getting old. 26 isn't too bad of a age, but it's too close to 30 for me to tolorate it completely. 25 was easier to deal with =P
