    I went to the doctors a few weeks ago, the receptionist asked for my age, I said '15'. I'm actually 17.

    I don't know where that came from! Time flies past so fast!

    Could have swore I was 26 this year, only to be told I'm 27 in september! How did I lose a year?! Anyone else going and?

    I usually know how old I am but in recent years my mum has made mistakes. You'd think she'd remember when I was born, after all she was there.

    Whenever I think of someone who's 18 I picture someone significantly older than me, even though I'm 18 in less than two months.

    I'm worse with years though. I'm still not used to it being 2013.
    Me too, I can't believe I'm turning 18 in 6 months!

    18 year olds are adults. I still feel like a kid.

    In all fairness my daughter is only 4 this year and I forget when she was born! I hate looking in the mirror and seeing more wrinkles, tired eyes etc, only feel 18! Sigh!

    I forget in that "How the hell am I XX years old already?" way. And I sometimes get confused around birthday time. But as in flat out forgetting how old I am... that hasn't happened yet.

    yeah sometimes when i go to clubs the bouncers ask my age and i go "ummmm.... er..... 18"... so it looks really suspicious like i'm lying, they usually let it go though or ask for ID.

    For some reason, whenever I'm asked what year it is, I say 2005. Not sure why.

    Probably because the conversation is about your car. I assume 2005 is the year it was registered.

    No. I never forget my age. I may be an idiot but im not that dull.
