    I've always related better to people older than myself. Maybe its a maturity thing.
    Ditto everything.

    The worst mistake people make in political arguments is assuming that the other side is not trying to do the right thing. This simple oversight makes productive conversation nearly impossible.

    I would say keep an open mind. You may meet some people who are younger than you, but there is an undeniable (friend) chemistry.

    I met my BFF when I was 18 and she was 29...we have been great friends for 17 years now. I met another one of my good friends when she was 21 and I was 29 and we have been tight for six years now.

    I would say to try to let go of any preconceived notions...you might pass a great friend by.

    I am mostly worried about people being 4-5 years younger than me, not all, but i guess 80% of them will be 4 yrs younger.
    I am 23, while I feel younger than I am 2-3 yrs, 19 year olds can be too young form me.
    Not yet, but when I'll be 27 they'll be 23... i dunno.

    am i overreacting ?


    I figured 3 yrs difference (20y.o.) isnt noticable with me at all, but 19 or 18.. that could be.

    i dont want to listen HS stories again.
    Go to school to learn.. making friends is just gravy. Age is arbitrary.

    Friendship is built on shared values and interests, not age.

    I am actually going to school to get shinny paper and cute hat after 3 years, but get your point.

    and it's not about individual people, my youngest friend is 18 oldest is 38, it's about group of 18/19 y.o.'s [that i was concerned]

    it's also that i dont feel like going but i have to get diploma.

    I see your point.. Even at 23, I can see how a large group of 18-19 year olds would have the potential to drain even the most mighty E types

I mean in ONLY 1 SEMESTER of medicine i studied more than ALL my friends I know in in other colleges (like journalism, psychology, communications etc.) in 3-5 YEARS!
    I just dont have any f'in paper.
    Oh okay that explains much more about where you are. Education systems are constructed as a very TJ'ish modality of learning, and rarely accommodates NF sensibility. Hardly accounts for much in the way of imagination either I have to say.

    i feel like working, maybe not now full time, but in 2 years..

    i tried to transfer now to psych, but just found out yesterday they dont let me until fucking fall 2011, so add 1 more yr to my old-ness.

    so i'll be over when at 26 almost 27...


    ah i am counting on that psychology is quite easy school, and some credits will transfer [though i still have to wait 1yr, and i wont be able to finish it earlier even though 45/60 from first yr will transfer, how stupid], so i'll be able to work next to it. because i have many ideas but it's hard to put them at work before i get any paper.

    I have the same problem actually. I want to study kind of to force myself to interact with all kinds of people again, but I'm 24 now and I'd have 18 year olds in my class!

    well i dont want to study bc of that, i want just get bachelor's degree.

    part of medicine i finished could be transferred to US and i could finish it quite quickly, but i dont have money of course, especially out of state tuition.


    and dont complain: among 18 y.o.'s u'll find many virgins.
