    You at the age where you watch 18 rated films/videos online or think of buying age restricted products and think 'heh 18+ sure i am' and then you realise. You are.

    Although, in my defence, I rarely plan, it just happens. :iiam:

    Pros:
    -I'm viewed as an adult and taken more seriously
    -Over some teenage insecurities/ more stable as a person
    -Legitimately able to take care of my own life

    Cons:
    -Realisation: F*ck I'm getting old
    -I don't have the "she's still a teen" excuse whenever I f*ck up
    -I HAVE to take care of my own life and act like an adult which is sometimes exhausting (both a blessing and a curse)

    Computer Science. I'm in first year at Leicester.

    Lol, I lost the appetite for a motorbike after crashing into a car and going over the handlebars so I'll be on 4 wheels if I ever do get back on the road. It's unlikely though.
    Oh wow I did Computer Science at uni too! How are you finding it? :five:

    Sorry to hear that man. I'm terrified of motorbikes tbh, I would never drive one myself...

    Yeah I'm enjoying it for the most part. Looking forward to getting back at it next week.

    Cheers man. In hindsight it was a good thing really as I got up and walked away with no injuries and a damn good reality check. At that time I was eventually planning to move up to a superbike that would I would have really ****ed myself up on.

    20.

    + I feel like a proper adult now. Like when I was 18, 19, sure, yeah adult by law, but to have 'teen' in it was childish still, to me.
    + I can do the **** I want now without my daddy protesting. I can just remind him that he's 50 and make him feel old :rofl:

    - Adulting is a complicated, difficult, interesting experience that had not all been enjoyable for me.
    - I look like a 16 year old if I don't wear make-up.
    - Having to pay my own way for everything now is sad.

    How old are you? What's the best and worst part about being that age? You can write more than one of each if you want.

    Would be interesting to see different opinions on here :yep:

    23
    + Less likely to get ID'd but it still happens to me
    - Nobody likes you when you're 23

    Discuss.
