I'm over 40, having the best year of my life. In debt, worried about my job, and a million other anxieties, but I have a great wife and kids who I love and who love me. I have a happy life, everything else is just details.

A bunch of you are missing the point. You will be whatever age you pick, *forever*. Don't worry about your wisdom, intelligence, experience, etc, as you will have eternity to learn and expand your mind. In other words, stay physically at 20, and in 30 years, you will have the "brains of 50" that someone mentioned earlier.

For those reasons, you should only pick what age you *physically* want to be forever; the mental stuff, wages, etc will all come to you in time. I myself would pick around 25-30.You are no longer a "kid", but your physical fitness is still top notch.

Aar1012: Kittypie070: FARK YOU, I wanna be 25 again.

As a 25 year old, I must say that being 25 is awesome...except for the debt and the job prospects


This.

I would love to have the job a 50 year old is able to hold on to (along with the prospect of work you got at age 22 to the people who are now the age of 50 and beyond). Right now job prospects suck and student debt is way beyond levels in the past (mainly because schools just raise the price because they can, not because of any new expenses (cept for maybe the new "Vice Presidents" that always pop up) that are part of the cost of admission.

WordyGrrl: When I was 16, I could never imagine reaching 21 (USSR vs USA nuclear war was going to kill us all, don't ya know?). Turning 30 sucked in that  frivolous "OMG, I'm not young anymore!" way. Turning 40 was much better, ala "Hey, this being an adult thing is kinda sweet!"

I'll be 50 in two years and... I finally feel like I'm growing into my power as a full-grown adult. I might be fatter and have some of the "old age" aches and pains," but my priorities are where they should have been years ago. And I just feel a helluva lot smarter in general.


It's all delusions. This "power" you have is just realizing you have no time left to make other choices.

If the idea of someone significantly older than you being happy makes you visibly agitated, the problem is with you.

I was in much better shape at 30 than I was at 25, but I could already tell by then that certain parts of me were going bad, and there was no way they'd ever be good again.  My knee will probably hurt for the rest of my life, for instance.

Aside from the usual pains associated with aging, however, life is better in my mid-30s than it was in my mid-20s.  A wife and kids will do that, as will finally settling down someplace nice.  I could move one more time in the next year, but that'll be it.

I may not get to be young again, but I get to watch my kid live life from the very start, and that'll allow me to watch youth from a new perspective.  It'll be interesting and fun, and I'm looking forward to the rest of it.

How are you supposed to know an age is good if you haven't lived it? Regarding younger people voting older ages.

I'm 53 now.  I completely wasted my 20's.  If I knew then everything then that I know now, I would have done pretty much everything differently ;)
