    p.s. please don't be offended I use the word childhood. I teach music lessons to some really bright, gifted kids your age. I admire their gifts and wisdom, but respect them for their stage in late childhood as well. It's an important place to be.

    That is a fun way to look at it, but think of this: The way you post doesn't tell your 'true' age, it helps define what it means to be the age you actually are. If your posts are interesting, whether you are ten or 99, it just demonstrates more effectively what is special about you at your literal stage in life. What do you think?

    edit: I guess I see it as a way of breaking down age stereotypes as opposed to reinforcing them.

    Age and maturity only have a very loose correlation.
    Having met a few 40 year old teenagers I consider maturity to be a fluid concept.

    The reason people sometimes miss being a teenager is that they miss having an excuse to act like one.

    I think in terms of cynicism and world weariness people often peak at about 15-16. They get a lot younger when they enter their 20s. I suspect it has something to do with being a heavily targeted market demographic.

    It's also things like:

    • Moving from one's 90210 microcosm to the "real world" where it no longer matters just what clique or social position one has. Other factors are in play.
    • Biological/Mental/Emotional development (teens brains are still developing, hormones are still running rampant and coping behaviors still have development to do)
    • Feelings of power and competence (due to earning ability, independence, etc.) and adulthood, rather than feeling like a child subservient to parents
    • Often some more direction for life has been found / some decisions have been made.
    • More experiences in a wider environment have been gathered, offsetting some of the distortions of youthful naivety


    it's very common for people who didn't get along in high school to attend their 10th reunion and get along like best friends, now that they are older and life is in more perspective.

    And I, sir, beg to differ. But a good theory...perhaps I'm the exception that proves the rule (out of interest, can someone explain what the hell that expression means? Without responding with a Google/Wikipedia link?)
