So next month I am turning 20 and to be honest it is really scary. I feel a bit old now and not really young anymore. Where have my teen years gone? I can no longer be a teenager and that makes me sad. I wish I could just pull an Edward Cullen and be 17 forever. I see a lot of people who are younger than me and I just feel really old and as if I looked better when I was 17 than I do now. Thinking of myself as having been on this earth for 20 years just seems crazy. Is anyone else scared of their future birthdays? What are your thoughts on this?

The teen years suck for most people. My teens were nothing special so I look at my 20's as "the best is yet to come". :)

Gets worse when you turn 30 and you realize that what was supposed the best decade of your life has been wasted.

It honestly means very little, wait until you're 70 & just be happy that you're alive at all.

I know what you mean, my 21st is next week and I can't believe how fast all of this has happened. If you had told me that I was going to feel old at this age I would have tried to enjoy the last couple of years a bit more. Just try to enjoy the next few as best you can, you don't know what you might regret missing out on.

You serious ?
Teenage years are the worst years that you have to endure
YES! Being 90 and ****ting yourself is less painful then voice cracks, pimples, body change and H/S

I turned 20 last month and was like, "wtf happened?" Didn't I just graduate high school a couple days ago? I felt, and stiil do feel, like I haven't accomplished much of anything for having been around for 20 years. I have no direction. I didn't do the whole high school dating/partying thing. Didn't do it during first year of college either. I left my first college because I dug myself a massive hole of a GPA because I didn't put out any effort. High school was so easy for me that I don't know what effort is. I was basically guaranteed a very lucrative career if I graduated from that school but threw it away and ended up with complete uncertainty about the future.

The only positive thing I have going for me right now is that my dad is a farmer, so I can always fall back on that if college doesn't pan out. Luckily I enjoy farming for the most part.
