Default 30 is not the new 20

it's the same old 30.

well i'm not turning 30. i'm turning 21 and i used to think 20, 21 was old. now i just feel like the same old me. i thought by now i'd have all my stuff together but i don't. so what were your expectations for when u were 21... or if you're not 21 yet what do you expect?

are u disappointed with where u are in life?

I always expected some mental switch would flick between being a child and being an adult, and that suddenly I'd get everything together and be able to sort stuff out with responsibility.

Turns out I did that anyway, and absolutely nothing obvious changed very fast. I'm still the same me I was a year ago, or perhaps a little different. Apparently a really important part of brain developement, Risk Management, only developes around 24. Perhaps that's when the magical switch is thrown XD

I'm 22 but I still feel like I'm 17. Teenage years were the best times ever (or at least up till now). College is pretty much a rat race to see who's gonna grab those coveted Honours. It bores me.

I totally understand how you feel, Ameh. :V

It's just nice to set milestones at certain points in time so we can identify them. Like how 18 is when you are an "adult", or 30 is when you start being considered "old". Life itself is actually uncertain, but people enjoy certainties. This is also part of why MMOs are so popular: your progress and achievements are gauged and relayed to you constantly in a way that you know what exactly you've done and how far you've made it.

Now if only life had such a feature.

This is pretty much why I stopped really celebrating my birthday around 15. It's silly to think that one day is going to suddenly change you that much. By the time your birthday comes around, you've already gone through the changes of the past year.

Oh right, I'm 19 and all I expect to happen when I turn 21 is that I'll get a horizontal license and be able to buy alcohol (yay?). Yeah, I'll be different in some way, but it won't happen all at once when the clock strikes midnight. I'm not Cinderella. >_>


[edit:] Well you can change a lot in one day, but that's mainly from a major event or something.
