Fellow quarter-ager, do I know you? [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm 26 and swinging into panic quite rapidly . My neighbors, a couple who were 26-27 at the time, also bought a boat, ran away from work and sailed till the money ran out. Guess I'll have to paint my boat red and shiny to be different Tongue

I must move to NZ and/or Australia (but I think NZ) as soon as possible!!! Not because LoTR was filmed there, either, but because when I was in NZ & Aus, both countries felt like home to me in a way that the US never has. Since I've been back in the States (almost a year & a half) I've felt desperate to go back home... to NZ & Australia. Anyway, to bring this sort of back on topic, I feel that being here, unhappy, is aging me!


...Come over here to Perth! I must warn you thought, the Demon of Winter is rubbing it's fingers together roaring "Mwuuuaahhahahaha!" as it prepares to strike with all it's chilliness!Laugh

Would love to come to Perth! [In reply to] Can't Post

TolkienJackson-

Thank you for your offer! Smile Even though I've just suffered through my own Northern Hemisphere winter, if it meant moving to the Southern Hemisphere, I'd skip summer & go straight for another winter. If I have my geography correct, Perth is a wee bit far from Australia Zoo, & from NZ, but it's a heck of a lot closer than New Jersey, USA is! Cool Am saving my pennies...

But I feel 20 lol! It's makes me feel old though to know that I've been a fan of the films since my freshman year in college.... Blush

My hubby just turned 31 last week. The funny thing about us though is if he wore a clean shaven face, we'd both still pass for highschool! In a way it's a good thing, but it get's annoying when you're still asked "Just how old are you?" Especially when yer toting around a 3-year-old. ;)

And some days I feel like I'm ready for another adventure. Other days, well, I feel like I imagine Frodo felt at 51.

I'm mildly surprised about how many people are around my age. [In reply to] Can't Post

I knew there were plenty of mature tornsibs, but I'm a bit surprised that I'm in the most populous age group, with lots of people in the nearby age groups as well.

And I agree. Many more young people will be apt to sign up in the coming months/few years due to The Hobbit coming outů

31 going on 32 [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be 32 on June 7th, but I've had that problem of being mistaken for younger for years. In fact, a couple of years ago, I got carded at a bar for ordering a sparkling water. The guy I just started a relationship with thought I was a few years younger than him, but I'm really two years older.

I'm sure I'll appreciate looking younger than my age as I get older. It can be hard when people mistake me for being a teenager. Sometimes they don't take me very seriously because of that, not realizing that I'm highly educated and I've experienced a great many things that some people twice my age haven't done. But then, it gives me a great deal of empathy for teens and how people will often assume the worst of them without really giving them a chance to show who they really are.

Age is really relative. I don't feel particularly old, and I don't feel particularly young. I think the most important thing is whether you feel good in your skin or not. I know I'm much happier with myself at almost 32 than I was when I was 16.

Yep, don't we all - and I wish the "younger" feeling stayed around longer than the "older"! Laugh

Ah, but as Aunt Dora said, you're "in your prime". Wink

On the other hand [In reply to] Can't Post

my father-in-law is 94 and his hair is still black. Go figure.

I know a woman whose hair was silver by the time she was in her thirties, and it looked beautiful.
