    ah yea, I was trying to figure out where stuff was in a game I'm playing so I can fly around and it had gotten so confusing that it really started to hurt just trying to figure out where I was and where I was going lol

    Sounds like everyday-life for young adults like you and me :D

    Though... When do you stop being a young adult? When you've learned to accept the harsh truth of life as an adult? :p

    I will always be young, though not in the sense of some elderly folks around here. I have been called Dawg by a guy who was at least 40, and I've seen some guy who has to be at least 70 wearing a baseball cap backwards. it makes no sense. I will be that guy who when I'm old, I will still blast my music as loud as I please and try not to be too grouchy unless I catch you on my lawn, then I'll get the bow and arrow and shoot a warning shot lol.

    I truly hope though that I never get 'old'

    I don't get asked for ID very often, though I work at the store I buy most of my booze from so it kinda makes sense that they know I'm old enough

    yea it can be annoying. that's why I like going to this one bar/club, cause they ID you right when you enter and then they never ask for it again lol

    But SJ, that's a sign that you aged well (or not at all! *gasp* VAMPIRES)! I haven't been asked for ID in ages. I rarely buy alcohol, and I guess the shadows under my eyes are so dark, they make me look like an exhausted adult. :D

    You know, it's funny. I don't feel any older, but I was going through old pictures a few weeks ago and found one of me and my hubby when we were in high school. I think we were about 16 when the picture was taken. Wow! Did we ever look young at 16 compared to now! lol

    I'm sure I probably look the same from high school (mind you it wasn't THAT long ago, though longer then I'd like). back then I couldn't grow any facial hair to save my life. now I'm scruffy

    It's funny how people age. I think aging is definitely more than just a physical phenomenon. It's so weird to recognize that in a photograph. That picture taken of us at age 16 looks almost alien to me now. Sure, I can recognize our present-day features in those baby-faces, but our present-day selves just aren't in it at all.

    Yup. I remember once seeing a picture of my grandmother in her youth when I was a kid. I didn't believe my mother when she told me who was in the photo. lol

    to think, it'll probably be the same for the younger generation as it keeps going... until they discover the secret to immortality

    Same here, about 28 or 29 when it finally stopped.
    There were a few times in my early 20s that even after showing my valid driver's license they still wouldn't serve me alcohol!

    That reminds me of an old photograph of my mom... she's in a bathing suit and sun hat... lying on a boat dock like some kind of celebrity! She's 18 years old in the pic, shot days after getting married to my dad. I mean really, what's that all about!
