  • In my opinion (and experience) there's really nothing to "get used" to. Aside from being able to legally purchase alcohol there is no difference.

  • You don't.

    By the time you get used to it you're 22 already, and so on.

    Realise that 21 is the last milestone for being considered "young" and now you are on the home straight to being 30...

  • Aging is a part of life. Trust me, I'd like to revert back to my younger years, but I can't, since I'm a human.

      You're supposed to make me feel better, not worse.

      You'll feel better by enjoying being 21 for however much longer it lasts. One day you're 26 and you're wondering why the hell everyone around you at the pub or whatever is younger than you, then you stop going out and start doing adult non-sense. Like winery tours and film festivals. I'd much rather be getting shit faced drunk right now bumping to some Radiohead, but I'm watching the olympics, having a beer and just took my multivitamins. So trust me, enjoy it.

  • Go to the bar. That's how I got used to it.

  • you'll get used to being 21 around the time when you hit your mid 20s. and then you'll have a crisis. at least that's what i've noticed - so many girls freak out when they hit 26 because they're not longer in their early 20s. i'm about to turn 24 and i still don't think of myself as over 21 - i just think of myself as a teen who is somehow able to drink. don't feel very old yet. scare for when it hits me in 2 years at 26 loll happy birthday! enjoy your legal-ness :p

  • Run the poll again when you are 40. And have more baggage. No disrespect young one. But 21 should be the time of your life! Live it up!

  • Well, it's pretty much the last major milestone birthday and last time you'll receive a boatload of presents and cards lol. You can now get away with crazy sh*t for the sole reason that you're 21. I felt old at 21, too, but now I'm almost 24 and realize I was still a baby at 21. (And I'm sure people over 25 think I'm still a baby at 23. That's just how it goes.)

    So, HBD and enjoy this year! The next big milestone will be 30, and I imagine at that point that you'll be freaking out about how much you think you haven't accomplished or how far ahead in life some of your friends are. :/

    (Holy crap. I'm almost 24? Just realizing this. SHIT.)
