    im 25 in just over a week...

    I dont feel old at all, I didnt realise I was going to be 25 until someone asked me how old I was going to be!

    Ive only ever felt old once and that was when my brother started talking about things we used to do as kids.

    @L3OUGH Lets do it! You gather the people, i'll find a location, and we'll split the cost of beer & vodka & whiskey & champagne! I call for a LAN party, or clubbing night to top it off!

    I didn't feel old when I turned 40 - I felt oddly liberated. Suddenly I really didn't care what people thought of me whereas before I had only pretended not to care.
    I think not living where you grew up helps as you have no memories of places as they were.

    I know a lot of you are the age of my children (24,22 and 20) or even younger but what I love about edugeek is seeing that the different generations CAN be friends. Yes, there are differences of opinion and behaviour, but that doesn't stop the friendship, I don't think.
    I have always been friends with my children's friends - not gone out of my way to be, but children are much more self-confident than when I was young, and whereas I would just say a quiet "hello" to my friends' parents, my children's friends will talk to me as an equal and a friend, which is lovely.
    Age is just a number - those of you feel old at 25 or even 35 are completely mad and you will see that in later years. Honestly, you don't feel any older inside as the years rack up !

    I think you're wrong there, young man, I would say they're the best combination for a hangover.

    The definition of old - when you prefer pubs to clubs just so you can have a chat with your friends and hear yourself think! I'm a member of this group...

    Getting older is MUCH better than the only other available option...

    I don't feel 'old'. I do feel mortal. I remember people like Douglas Adams who died at 50, or James Gandolfini at 51, and I think I'm nearly that age - that could be me. But I don't feel old.
