    I'm 19 and I would have to say that 17 was my favourite age. Learning to drive, last year of school (mucking about and playing hide and seek in the school, going for takeaways at lunch, not giving an F) and applying to uni.

    What has been your favourite age?

    17.

    Me and my partner first started dating, my health was better, my papa didn't have kidney cancer or kidney failure then, I was a lot more confident and ambitious then, I had just started college and I got rid of some toxic people at that point.

    Had some great years and memories since, of course but as a whole, that age was a very memorable one.

    Probably 17 although 18's alright so far. At 17 I felt that much more mature than I was at 16 but I still got half price travel on trains.

    What!? You liked being 17!? I'm 17 and I'm the most miserable I've ever been in my life! Exam pressure, parent pressure, social ineptitude, body insecurity, and disillusionment with life and the future are just some of the things which make my life worth living! 😭

    Anyway, rant over. In answer to the question, 7, because I was oblivious to the world's imperfections, I lacked self-awareness, and could just be a fun-loving kid.

    Oh, this is difficult! I think maybe 16. I was really unwell over that year, but it was my last year of school. I hated the place, but I had some really good times with my friends. I made a lot of good memories that year

    Im 17 right now and I think its the best age :bandit: either now or when I was 10 and still in AUS :moon:

    exam pressure- no doubt theres a ton with A lvls but at least it keeps you occupied and is a good conversation starter :lol:

    parent pressure- always had this with asian parents anyway so nothing new, besides even if the pressure is highest now, when you go to uni, the pressure will be greatly relieved!

    social ineptitude-Im lucky in that I developed confidence late 15 to 16 becoming much more extroverted and social, you just have to realise everyone is only human and that some ppl will naturally like/dislike you for a variety of reasons

    body insecurity-Developing physical confidence goes hand in hand with social confidence, they increase and decrease together, just be happy with yourself, and work on your weak areas if need be

    disillusionment with life and the future-I do know I want to be an accountant atm but that came from trying tons of career styles in work experience and just exploring different things, just try out as much stuff as possible

    However old you are in Year 9, 13/14? Last year of ''easy'' school, didn't have to worry about work, exams etc, it was just a good year in general :love:

    16 was pretty good too, but nothing beats 13/14

    Thats what i thought about year 8, lol.
    Not the newbie (i.e. year 7) any more. But not stuff like sats in year 9 or gcse stuff in year 10/11. It wasnt my favourite age but it was certainly up there as one of the best school years.

    12, went to a noice school in london (ok not perfect, has its ups and down but i enjoyed the drama) london was nice, a bit depressing since i wasnt an outside person but overall pretty good, like 6/10 good. if thats the best i ever felt, well then there's not much other than that, the other years are consecutively bad
