    Turning almost 22 I'm always telling myself I can't be proud of myself yet till I have what I should have at this age.

    For me I suppose it would be at least have a rooted desire to take care of yourself and better yourself.

    Nothing really except maybe at least have completed the first year of a degree? Then again generalising like this is hard because everyone matures at different rates

    I want people my age or younger to not act like the majority of the people in the classroom in this video:

    I also expect people my age and the younger to be motivated in their education, career goals, be helpful and to treat everyone with respect. I also agree with you OP.

    17, I don't really expect anything of anyone.

    The worst thing you could possibly 'expect' of someone is that they should be 'more focused on their careers and future' or something similar.

    A guy or girl that makes proper sense, actually knows what a friend and a relationship are, can accept me and care about me. But like a cheap kitchen, finding someone with those qualities is hard if you're 14.

    I mean, for god's sake, I know my general political preferences and the rest don't know anything about politics! They also didn't really cared about the Chilcot Report when I did, I'm really alienated apparently but... That's actually the other way around.

    Everyone I know only seems to care about appearance or sex, I'm actually panromantic asexual so erm... yeah. I'm mildly bullied for that because also most people I know also think LGBTQ people are weird/pathetic.

    If I want a relationship one day I'll probably need to wait a long time and maybe move out of this area. So I likely won't bother.

    At least a basic understanding of politics/current affairs
    More maturity and forward/logical thinking

    Nothing at all really. I mean, it's not unrealistic at my age to just be figuring out what you want to do in life

    Unfortunately at age 20, this doesn't get much better. My friends are wildly intelligent, but still couldn't give two figs about politics past the basic "leave voters are racist and I'm voting remain because I love European culture."

    Most political jokes I make go way over their heads. I guess they prefer jokes about genetalia instead

    They don't realise that leaving the EU allows us to make our own control and laws amongst other things like that, though there are obviously the initial drop in trade and such, it does resolve itself in the end.

    (Maybe it will give us better privacy too, I don't know yet.)

    Also I hate sex jokes. I find them a bit funny but not like actually hilarious, it's not my cup of tea in humour.

    I suppose I'd expect someone to have some sort of independence be it,being at uni or at having a job and had moved out of their parents house but then everyone has different goals at different ages.
