This hobby makes me feel like I'm perpetually 22. I feel my age more when it comes to thinking about finances, like mortgage payments, taxes, my job, etc... just because there is a greater level of responsibility with it than when I was in college or fresh out. Yet when it comes to U2 money is no object!! You have to have fun!

It didn't hit me until about 2 months ago that I'm an adult. My boss said to me, "You're the adult here." I thought, "I am?" But I am. I'm 23. I don't feel like it. My husband and I goof off all the time. We watch cartoons and have fun doing kid stuff. I'm wearing a Batman shirt right now. We just bought a car today. That made me feel like an adult.

Physically I feel like I'm 40. I have chronic back pain (good old scoliosis).

The first thing I think of when I wake up in the morning is when can I take a nap today.

Otherwise I don't feel old. I'm 26, almost 27 (on saturday )

I've been mistaken for a high school student twice since school started last Tuesday. I don't think I look that young though.

So true! Although I am 22.....

I go back and forth with how I feel.

Even at 22 now, people usually think I am about 18. Sometimes they think my 20 y/o sister is the older sister. I suppose I will appreciate this in a few years.

I don't feel much different than I did in high school; I am financially independent now but living off of loans and don't have a full time job so I'm not really in the "real world." Law school sort of seems big and important at times but most of the time it's just school and I've always been a student so it's same old same old.

I cannot believe people my age who are married/getting married. I consider my family to be my parents and siblings and cannot imagine being married right now.

In terms of physical shape, I definitely notice that running is harder now and I cannot run 8 miles a day no problem like I did in high school. And it's easier to gain weight (prob. because I am not running 8 miles a day)

Oh well........
Or older! Ack!

I remember when I was 16 I couldn't even conceive of being this old. I'm now 41 and my 25th high school reunion is coming up in a few weeks... That makes me feel old. Although not as old as the rest of 'em! (I was the youngest in my class. )

There are days where I do feel old physically (if I had thought I'd get this old I would have taken better care of me ), but otherwise I don't feel a whole lot different than I did 15 or so years ago.

I've actually gotten younger as I've gotten older. Just wish my body would go along with my mind's concept..

You know your're getting old when you hurt yourself sleeping.

I'm 39 going on 25. My wife wishes I would grow up, but I like my toys too much to do that. And like Redrocks I still play sports, but my body hurts the next morning, so I guess I feel my age at times.

I only feel old when I get tired, and I don't mean sleepy.
OMG..I thought I was the only one that felt that way (I am 27, will be 28 in March) I sometimes feel like I am wasting my 20's away because I work all the time and have no social life

I've always been a late-bloomer in the department of maturity when it relates to independence. I'm 20, and I still don't have a driver's license, I've never had a paying job, I have no girlfriend, and I'm living with my parents. Although I'm starting to want to get out of here at some point. Basically, at 20 I'm where a 16 or 17 year old should be in some ways. In other ways I'm really mature and am more like a 30 year old at 20 - those being peer pressure, caring what people think, listening to the music I want to listen to and not what's on the radio, reading people, that kind of thing. Physically I already have mild scoliosis, so that's definitely not 20.

But I still feel like I'm 20. I'll be 21 in September.

I feel youthful. I am 36. I feel about 27. Music keeps me young.
