    Just Made It In

    I turned 21 in Feb. and I think it's funny that people still refer to me as "just a baby" because of my age... It's funny cause when they talk to me they say I am older than I am. Experiences make up for what I lack in age I guess lol

    Well, Early Twenties

    23 and almost always the oldest student in my college classes, but that's no problem, more of a brag really.  So far I don't see what's so special about the twenties, maybe they'll gain greater significance when I'm out of my twenties, we'll see then.

    The Last Decade Just Flew By!

    Ever since I turned 21 last year, all I keep thinking about is how quickly the last decade flew by. My gosh! I'm thinking about how fast this one will fly by too, and I get scared. What if I'm wasting away my youth on school? I keep wanting to just take a break and travel the...

    As I get deeper into my 30th year in this life, on the journey to my 30th birthday next year, I can help but be saddened at how this culture treats 20 year olds. I am only now starting to be treated like an adult by employers and people in public. People have some real uncalled...

    I am 28 years old and it is depressing to think that I only have one year left of my twenties after this one. Then I will be 30. I am terrified to be 30 for so many reasons, but most of all the lost youth that I will be leaving behind. I have never had a chance to be young and...

    Sometimes I Just Feel Older Than I Am

    I'm 22 years old going on 23. It already seems to feel like I'm 23 when I'm not. I can't understand why. I just do I guess. Sometimes I just feel older than I am.

    To Be Exact

    I'm 22 years young. I'm mostly happy. I think this is a good age. I'm working on myself on the inside and the outside right now so I guess it can only get better. Wish me luck!   <---me

    Yes, But Not For Too Much Longer.

    I am in my twenties, but not for too much longer. I have less than two years left. I'm 28 now & am terrified to be 30. I haven't had much of a youth & now it's pretty much over. I dread turning 30, especially if my life is still the way it is now. I'm not afraid to be old, but I...

    Time Flies...

    ...even when you're not having fun. When I think about my age (27 this year), it's not the growing older that bothers me. Growing older beats the alternative. What bothers me the most is looking back at a lot of wasted years. Years that my fiance' wanted me. Years that I...

    I'm 25... Never been a partier, though I've gone to a few parties, LOL, done some pretty 'fun' stuff, but in all actuality, most of it was pretty retarded. I find myself right in the middle. Oddly, I've always thought of an 'adult', truly, as someone over 30... And I'm in...

    Depressing, Maybe But Definately More Optimistic

    In the summer just gone, I celebrated my 24th birthday. I just saw it at another excuse for getting drunk, as ya do. And then, as a joke of course my lovingly dad said, " oh god, 24 almost half way to 50. And in that instant my morale went from all time high to below par. Even...

    For a Couple More Years

    I'm 27.  I don't know what more I can say.  It doesn't feel different than 20 did or 17 for that matter.

    Loved the Early 20's...nowadays...not So Much

    I loved my early 20's, spent a couple still in the military, felt invincible still, partying all night and working all day. Then I came home, started on the college thing, scratching my head at all the college-age kids (while admiring the beautiful college women). Funny thing...

    20th Summer

    I'm exactly 20. I will be starting my first year at college this fall. I know this seems odd, but I am odd. When I graduated, I didn't feel the need to go off to college. I worked on my father's dairy farm for a year and a half. I know now that it wasn't such a good ideal. My...
