    A couple of years after leaving school, I went back and saw some of the kids. Woah.

    About 30... when I noticed certain changes in my body and things I couldn't do so easily anymore. I don't think much of it these days except when talking to others about music and films... someone told me recently that Apocalypse Now was a really old film, and to some, I guess it is.

    Wait till your 30th comes along. The death of your twenties is a shocking one... at least it is for me. (I'm turning 30 this month and rather disgruntled about it) :eek: Does this mean I have to behave like a grown-up now? :eek: I disapprove!

    today I am the oldest I've ever been! ;) :p

    The only way to fight the signs of aging... is just to rock that little bit harder. ;) :D

    I'm still recovering from the shock of turning 18, apparantly I'm an "adult" whatever that means....

    Yep, 30 is a bit of a killer – at least in your twenties you can kind of pretend that you’re still a young ‘un. I know what you mean too, BV – it's incredible how quickly you start falling apart after 30... :eek:

    It means you can drink, buy naughter magazines, and speak with authority about things you have no idea about. :)

    I started drinking when I was 14, seeing as I could buy booze at bars at 14 i'm pretty sure i could have bought naughty magazines had I been interested in them and I've talked with (false) authority about things which i have no idea about for ages, about when I joined MR when I was, oh, 14.

    QED I'm 22.

    Does that mean wearing leather trousers, having a mid-life crisis, growing a pony-tail, starting an illicit fling, getting dowwwn with the yoof... and buying a Harley?

    If it worked for Karl Kennedy, it can work for anyone.

    one of my best friends is getting married this year, and i'm going to be in the wedding party. he's 27, and i still can't believe it. but wait until people you know start to have kids or get divorced. what freaks me out most is when people you know pass away. anyway...

    That's already happened, through suicide and accidents. Divorces, domestic abuse... drug addictions, been there.

    And yes, I've started to read the obituary columns on occasion; hearing that David Bowie had had a heart attack a year or two ago made me feel old, but probably not as bad as it made him feel, mind.

    I started feeling old 5 minutes ago when I read about all you lot in your teens 20s & 30s feeling old .... !!!!!!

    I agree with teleromeo ... I'm 51 & don't have the time nor the inclination to feel old just yet. Mind you, these days the jet lag takes longer to go away.
