Kind of a random question to be putting up top, I know. Just curious how old you all feel now like me holy fuck I'm 1 year away from being 30

Old enough to be like "omg 30 is close" but young enough to shrug it off as being "a few years away still".

This "oh god, i'm almost thirty and my life isnt' in order" thing is getting old to our whole generation. It's not to say it's not relevant, but supposedly we're supposed to have our shit together by now.

My "omg" comes more from an immature view of "When I was a kid, 30 seemed really old and now I'm almost 30".

I do think by 30 most people want to have sorted themselves out for their own benefit though. Not always possible though, and as I said in the other post a couple of weeks back different people mature and grow at different rates. What's normal for one person, isn't necessarily so for another.

I think it has more to do with situation rather than maturity. I see people owning their own house who still act like children, but adults who work hard, work smart, etc, can't get a leg up.

A lot of the media that I find "nostalgic" is older than the dinks that I argue with on reddit about said media.

My first Gametalk post is older than some kids that have iPhones now.

The number of years that I've been on 4chan is greater than the number of years between 4chan being founded and when I first saw it.

I actually have my shit together mentally for the first time. It's coming together physically too, just slowly because I had to start from rock bottom.

I've noticed people seem to have things at least mostly figured out in their 30s. They may not have the house/white picket fence thing, because people have different life goals.

I swear every time i think i do, i end up with another setback. To be fair, at least my outlook on life is more positive than when i was on gametalk: i thought i'd starve to death by 19.

Being older is what it is.

But ever since I was 18 I've been somewhere new and challenging myself in different ways every 1 or 2 years. I'm enjoying graduate school, and I feel really fortunate my long-time goal to do it has landed me in such a unique institution.

I've chosen who I want to spend my life with, but we're still apart most of the time, and I really should start to save money and develop my career, so this next year is going to take place in that transition.
