Most Helpful Guy
I am turning 27 soon and sometimes I feel very old. For example when I see 16 or 17 year old teens asking questions on here and being totally naive (in a cute way) and I think to myself "crap... this was TEN years ago. That's more than half of these teenagers' lives!" Or sometimes I talk about my childhood and I sound like my grandparents "yeah, the good old days" and I think back to my time in elementary school and realize "this was TWENTY years ago! 20 years is like... a quarter of your whole life!"
Sometimes I also feel old when I compare myself with people from other countries on this site, especially Americans. Because the university system works differently in my country and our studies tend to take much longer. I am still studying at University and I will be doing so until I'm 30 or so, while most Americans my age already work in a job. So that sometimes also makes me feel very old.
But then again, I also love being silly and I'm a very playful person and sometimes I also feel like being 5. So that kind of compensates all the somber feelings again :-).0
