ThatGuyFromTheInternet: Having wasted and been miserable for the first 80% of them thus far (as of next Tuesday), all I can say is "fark."


But 20 years from now you'll look back on it all nostalgic, like those were the good old days.

In college, I thought I was miserable, but looking back on it, it was the best time I've ever had, which is depressing.

I used to think it would be great go back into my 20's. Then I paid attention to a group of 20somethings and thought "Nope, 36 is good".

/most of my 20's were a continuation of my stupid teen years

Farking lovely. That was the worst farking decade of my farking life. This possibly means that on my death bed, I'm only going to remember that piece of shiat Hell hole of my life instead of the years I spent immediately afterwards trying to make up for it. Fark you fate, you piece of shiat.

I was married at 22, graduated college at 24, first kid at 27, PhD at 30. My twenties was a decade of a lot of work and a lot of poverty, but I'd go back and do it all again.

Ever since I was 14, almost every evening before I go to sleep I review the day and study on how it went and how I could have done better. So I've kept journals and took a lot of pictures of what I was going through at all my ages in my life. I read through the years from 14 to 36 recently after my daughter dragged it out of the chest in the attic and all I've got to say is that I the way I remembered it is a whole lot different than the way it really was. But what the hell, either way I had a lot of fun. Sure do know a lot of dead people though.

Its not hard to figure out why.... Its the oldest age we reach prior to realizing that all our hopes and dreams will not be fully realized.

When I was 20 I wished I had large stacks of cash to spend. Now that I'm well past 20 I have large stacks of cash, but I don't want to spend them cuz I'm gonna need them to get by when I'm older. Farked up life.

These stupid ass scientists do realize that most of us weren't even alive the 20's -- how in heck are we supposed to remember them?

The Southern Dandy: busy chillin': ladyfortuna: Yes, I remember this just about every day when I wake up and something hurts. 32 and feel like 60...

now, see that sucks. I am super blessed or lucky or something.

36. Feel about 27.

I'm 48 and feel about 27. Still barely have any gray hair. I avoid stress, and consequently avoid success.


As someone in my 20s (even if it's the high end) with a permanent small limp, a back that hurts when I sleep wrong (including holding my fiancee!), a bad shoulder (it hurts to move my right arm about horizontal) and rapidly thinning hair, I'm jealous of y'all. Wish I had taken better care of myself when I was a stupid teenager and college kid.

The good news is that I make my living with my brain, and that seems to still work just fine.

Fine with me. My 20s were filled with hope, aspirations, lust, sex, passion, potential... then I got married and am now just fighting the urge to swig rat poison laced razor blades.
