    Me and my friends are mid to late 20's and you really notice age when conversations about kids, marriage and property start cropping up. "Wait why are we talking about property?" "Uhh, damn we are getting old."

    I'll be 36 in April and I still feel like I'm 21. I still like loud music and fast cars and beer and whatnot. At least, I feel like I'm 21 until the morning after, because then instead of feeling fresh as a daisy I lie around for 36 hours feeling like death warmed up.

    Some people I went to school with were middle-aged at 17. I plan to be ridiculous forever.

    I had the horrible realisation this morning that I only have 20 days left of my 20's :-(

    But forget acting sensibly :-)

    I can't believe anyone is worried about turning thirty!

    I'm 12 years away from that....on the wrong side....and have never worried about my age!

    Age is just a number, and can bear no relation to how you act! Enjoy your 30's cos by the time you reach 42, you'll be pining for those last days of 29!!!

    Lightweights! I can't even remember turning thirty! It was completely eclipsed by turning fifty - and even that was a while ago!

    Still not acting my age though! It's just that everything hurts a bit more and takes a lot longer....
