Well, happy early birthday! And don't think of turning 20 as a loss of your teenagerdom…think of it as the beginning of your awesome, thriving, way-better-than-teenagerdom, less angsty 20s!

I turn 20 in April - and like amanda says, it's less a loss of teenagerdom, and more a gain of a less angsty 20-something-dom. :)

A hearty congratulations in advance!

Pffft… I turned 20 almost 23 years ago, and I still haven't grown up. I see no reason you have to.

Fenn's right; age in years doesn't mean anything. It's how old you feel inside that counts. I still act like a six-year-old most of the time (but I know when to put a lid on it when I'm in a professional setting).

Completely true. You may have to grow old, but you never have to grow up. I plan on acting like I'm 20 for the rest of my life.

Grow up when you have to, but remember that getting older just means you have more choices as to what age you are at that moment. :D
This is a signature. There are others like it but this one is mine.

I'm 51.

That's only if you put my actual age backwards, though.

Being a 20-something is LESS angsty?

We'll check back in a few years and see if you still think that's true. ;)

Look at it this way: while your in your twenties, the date pool is much larger.

Growing up only details paying your bills on time and that you have money to pay your bills. Otherwise…pffffff, who cares.

What's odd is when you turn 24. Adults aren't adults anymore, they're people…and teenagers aren't friends, they're kids.

True. But add to that:

*Taxes - Grrrrrr… -_-

I'm 25… and a half. So, officially, I'm now closer to 30 than 20. All the people I've known in school and college have gotten married or are getting married soon. Some days, that makes me feel like a loser – but other days, it makes me feel like the winner. lol

I've never liked teenagers. When I was a teenager, I hated me too. I always hung out with 30-something and 40-something friends. I still do, but now we have a lot more to talk about.

I would agree, I hate 80 percent of the teenagers at school. (The percentage is actually higher, but I have been told to be more optimistic.) The ones that I loathe are immature, and have opinions that should never be expressed. I only talk to the ones that I can bare.

…Which isn't that many, actually.

I hang out with people older than me. They're not that much older; they are mostly in college. When they try to be humorous, it doesn't involve sexualities and excrement, unlike the humor many people of the student body use. Disgusting.

Getting back to the ‘growing old’ conversation: Your personality will never change, no matter how ‘old’ you say you are getting. In fact, the youngest-acting adult I have ever met was around 70 years old. Even if he was much more older than me, we talked to each other playfully.

Oh, and it's not how many years old you are, it's how many years experienced you are.

I'm 16 years experienced.


This year, school's full of BS!!!

I'm close to turning twenty as well. On the upside, It's one year closer to being able to legally ingest alcoholic beverages.

Well, I like to think so ^.^ I put aside my angsty journals of poetry, stopped wearing all that black, developed a fondness for the color pink…not that it was a switch I flipped or anything. I was just by and large out of that mindset (i.e., high school/college).

I read this book for work called Strengths Finder (it's way better than it sounds, and it's changed the way I look at people) about a year ago that talked about your core personality being cemented by the time you're five. Seems pretty accurate.

And yeah, the “gee I can buy alcohol and lottery tickets and white-out with no hassle” thing is pretty nice.

…I still wear lots of black. Of course, I look really good in it, so that helps. 27, FTW.

No one thinking you're buying dry ice to make big explosions or fireworks to blow up in water bombs is also really nice

Okay, agreed that some of the typical teen behaviors disappear when you hit your 20's…but they're just traded in for a whole new set of idiotic personality traits.

Maybe that's just a 20-something NYC hipster thing, though.
