Is it as awful as it sounds?
Get over it.
I do in a bit over a week, I'll let you know. Did a thread about 20's the other day. It was mostly reassuring.
happened this Summer. A large portion of my friends were away in the US or elsewhere. I usually make a big deal outta my birthday, but this year I was working in an office all day, and didn't tell anybody. Anticlimax. And since then, whenever I get drunk I just start jabbering on about getting old (quarter life crisis I reckons). Hope this helps!
you are still kind of a teenager till 21 (I've convinced myself), I think that's the big one really. Then it's death.
i turned 25 a few weeks ago. it ruled, and it continues to rule.
yes, exactly as awful as it sounds.
I reckon the twenties ftw. Only downside is I heard Teenage Kicks last week and I can no longer truly relate. Happy birthday btw.
teen years are baws.
You start to remember two years ago as an episode of the OC where you scored Marissa Cooper at the Prom.
these are the bad ones:
22 (because you are older than 21)
23 (because of the line 'no one likes you when you're 23' lyric really hits home)
24 (because you are closer to 30 than 18)
27 (who wants to outlive kurt cobain)
these ones are alright:
25 is surprisingly good, already used to the idea of being a 20 something but still feel young
26 is ok to because it doesnt feel much different to 25
wait until you turn 25. eek.
(26 is better)
Yeah, 26 ain't all bad. You're kind of a grown up proper, but still eat shite food, get caned and generally live like a student anyway and it's still not frowned upon.
Except by your bosses Managing Directors at work, when you come in caned on a Monday morning stinking of stale guiness
20s >>>>>>>>>>> teens
I spent my 20th birthday in Spain. 10 minutes into my 20th birthday I got attacked by some Spaniards. One was wearing a bumbag, it was awful. I had to throw my baguette in their direction for them to run off. One fucker managed to dislocate my jaw :(
I'd had one the night before, it was really nice.
you are about to have more fun over the next couple of years than you previously thought possible.
Yes, I said AMAMzing.
Twenties have been infinitely better
