    feels great to tell the young kids "Go to Bed!"
    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    I still feel like a teenager!

    Seriously though, it's pretty damn good ;)

    Well I still have the energy to do the things I like to do, and now I actually have the money to do them. And the shoes! I can now surround myself in shoes :oops: I remember in my early 20s I could only purchase 2 new pairs per season...and they had to be...*practical* (sob) Those were sad, sad days :cry:

    and what they say about women in their 30's is true...so you won't get any complaints out of me 8-) :lol:

    Already in holy shit I'm a junior mode and classes begin on the 29th! I blinked and 2 years of college went by. Both freaking nervous yet excited about the 'real world'.

    So far it's a bit "Meh".

    :lol:

    Ups and downs. I'm certainly glad that I can still go to one of my favourite bars here, even though they recently changed their age limit to 24. :mrgreen:

    Same for me, actually! For now, I hate having the late birthday out of all my friends...though I'm sure when we're all older I can rub it in their face :lol:

    You only get to a certain point
    And then you start going backwards
    At least that's been my experience
    And I'm enjoying it :)

    My niece is 20 today.

    I think she's grown up pretty well so far - good head on her shoulders, future wide open - I have high hopes for her as her life continues.

    (could say the same about you too ;) )

    Same here. I think some of my friends are freaking out about turning 30. Doesn't bother me at all...except for looking in the mirror and seeing that I already need to be using Just For Men.

    I turn 30 in a little over two weeks. I don't feel old, but I do kind of feel like 30 snuck up on me.

    I'm 31. I dearly miss college days as there was absolutely no responsibility other than to study. That said, I also like the salary I'm currently making. :D Single dude, making good money, travel all the time, in good shape,...life is good! :D

    Telling concert stories with younger coworkers the other day, I started one with "ya man, at Ozzfest '99.."...and they all burst out laughing. I had no idea what happened :lol: was like...uuhh...what? They all started telling me how old they were in 1999 :roll: Doesn't feel like that long ago. I was the same age as these guys when I went to that show (24).

    I like some things about getting old(er)....yes, women in their 30's are...hmm..a lot less inhibited, and a little less crazy? :P
    I gotta say tho...in my experience...there was a much bigger selection in my 20's.
    Find a good one that decade, and keep her :lol:

    What's crazy is that I had to pause a minute and actually THINK of how old I actually am! :lol:

    A couple weeks ago I was asked how old I was....I flip-flopped between 37 and 38 a few times, then actually had to do the math :lol:
