A few things. I'm very angsty by nature but the older I get, the more that seems to fade, which is huge.
I also had four babies in my twenties, so by my mid-thirties, they were all at a stage where they no longer needed car seats or diaper bags and could get themselves dressed and didn't have to constantly be watched for attempts at self-destruction via running into the street or choking to death on Legos, etc.
lol! Your descriptions of motherhood always make me smile. I have got another thing coming if I ever have kids
My husband got a better job with benefits around that time, too, which took us out of poverty. He wasn't traveling for work anymore and we were able to talk a walk together by ourselves most evenings when the weather was nice. It sounds silly but it was my version of paradise.
Doesn't sound silly at all! Sounds peaceful and wonderful.
We lost a lot of that in the recession and are just now getting it back, but those years took a toll on my husband's health and also made us realize how easily the rug could be pulled out. Hopefully we'll make up for the losses soon and my mid-forties will be just as happy if not happier.
Life keeps getting better the older I get, so I still look forward to experiencing my most awesome years
Most of my twenties sucked royally and I grew up somewhere I never felt comfortable, so younger is out... I've always believed that my late 30s and my 40s will be awesome, however... Probably linked to my belief that I'll reach my maximum hotness then

23. Also, probably my most financially poor time, coincidentally. However, I'm busy paving the way for when my indentured servitude to the government ends in two years and then I think it will be the best of my life so far.

Life was easy, I could play a lot of video game and still get excellent grades. My parents used to be less boring, and I had extremely reliable best friends.

i think spending a ton of money at bars is retarded, personally.
Agreed. Fucking ten dollars almost for the cheapest shot of gin? Fuck that.
(If I eventually end up doing bartending on weekends, plz punch me if I ever attempt to justify the cost)
I don't get out to bars much, so it's not an issue. Usually it's just been to small bars with a music venue I've checked local bands out at/saw my friends play/performed with them. I'm not there to drink specifically. But if I want to, I'm kinda shameless. I bring my own flask. All they ever told me to do when they've noticed was to go put it in my car. I imagine pushing it would get you kicked out. I'm not a big drinker, so usually if they noticed, I'd already had my fill.

I support being a bar cheapskate, is my point, ha.
