...where you get a rough outline of a persons adult self.
then i'll have six days to perfect things.
"it's nearly my birthday!" posts in a row.
I love birthdays. The only day of the year i can excuse arrogance.
That only gives me one day to find some kind of hope / social ability / decisiveness / confidence / so on.
'Cos if it's 20 I'm fucked.
I thought ''he'll still be finding that funny in 20 years time''
Probably he'll have moved onto "Fanny" by the age of 30.
there was a sign on the fridge saying 'Cock Zero, half price, out of date'. The shop lady had obviously spelt it wrong (she later changed it) but about 30 people I knew got photos of it/with it and it was THE TALK OF THE SCHOOL.
This is still funny for me, in fact it's probably still funny for everyone apart from the dweebs who were like 'Jeez, it just means coke, god'.
I think it's because it's accidental comedy.
I suppose him setting the picture as cock, and feeling all smug and 'hur hur hur I am the funniest' steals a bit of the hilarious coke/cock THEY ARE ALMOST THE SAME WORD kinda thing.
when you have lost someone, loved and had your heart broke...whatever age thats all happend
financial responsibility? :S
I was so much more of a prick back when I was 20...
I've just realised.
Plenty 20 year olds still have a very teenage mentality. That's okay. If they're still that way at 25, there's less hope. Some, but definitely less.
youthful exuberance is no longer an excuse
now i'm just a bit of a twat.
i reckon by 27 i'll be okay.
Unless it's invaded by arachnids and a little lad named James
If 20 was what defined my adult character, then I'm going to be very stressed the rest of my life seeing as the past year was the most stressful year of my life. But who knows, I'd like to believe I'm not gonna be in stress overload from living with Yetis, taking biochem & eukaryotic biology exams, and applying to dental school the rest of my life.
I'm talking about identity, personal nature, psyche, soul
& i can then, for the most part, agree with your sentiment.
I do. Not fully. Abit.
I meant myself
But sometimes I do think of myself to be a bit of a bitch, tbh, though I try not to be.
youre always going to look back and think poorly of your younger self. well, shit people do. i look back at me at 16, and think "what to fuck went wrong?". no ones personality is set in stone, or something.
yeah. so. happy birthday i guess?
hello. are you still at work?
i'm just stuck in my room studying for a lame exam on friday. right now i'm teaching myself about the lipopolysaccharide layer of gram negative cells. make it stop.
it is ended, you are free now. go outside and chase squirrels or something
anyway, nope! just assumed aha.
p.s. you will kick that exam so hard in the balls it will give you an A**** just so you dont do it again (by which i mean, good luck, you'll do well :) )
you'll be proud to know that I now have 3 EPs and will *hopefully* be amassing more as soon as this exam is done come Friday. OH AND THANKS for giving me permission to chase squirrels, you always know the best remedies to situations haha. :)
...and share it with you peeps.
I can't find my ''Potter on Potter'' book
I haven't even been to India to find myself yet
Just look at this picture:
that he wasn't even a person til he was 22.
i'd wholeheartedly agree with that, in application to myself. it's once you're out of uni and striking out into whatever you're going to do and be that all the floating half thoughts come together into an adult human.
some go earlier, some go later, but i've found that, as a vague rule, this works.
I cut a juvenile figure on these boards...and I definately have a discernible immature streak......but I find myself playing headmaster when talking to groups of people in Uni.
I'll think that of 24 when I'm 28.
but I've no idea what my response would be in a few years time. Based on what I know about other people it seems quite accurate although it'll vary depending on who you're talking about.
Having said this I've changed a fair amount in the last couple of years, so maybe my adult self has not yet been completely found. Can I change my answer to never? Some people will keep changing and developing regardless of age. I'll get back to you when I'm 30.
But I'm almost positive that you would be able to attribute most character traits to a catalyst nutured in the 20 year old self.
unless you're a reformed criminal that's decided to be a better person or something.
I think most of my character traits were with me in some form when I was much younger, like 16. They've developed and I've obviously changed a lot since then but my core beliefs have always remained the same. I'm not one of these people that looks back on my teenage self and thinks "what a prick", I was mostly quite a nice kid, not necessarily in the way I behaved (immaturity obviously has a part to play) but my values were pretty solid.
This post is a mess, sorry. I'm not entirely sure what the point of it is.
Do you really still think you're a bit of cunt? Why do you believe this?
"god i thought i knew everything aged (current age minus 1/2 years) but now i realise i knew fuck all about the world, life and myself"
i don't see it ever stopping, which isn't actually as frightening as once was.
