>Tfw just turned 22
who /old/ here, I want to be 18 again
I'm 18 right now, please tell me what makes you want to be 18 again and how do I avoid fucking up as much as you did
You have a lot more safety nets, less responsibilities and society doesn't expect much out of you...yet.
Enjoy it while you can anon, the transitional shift is like day and night. Expect the sun never shines again.
I'm not him but joining the military ruined me mentally.
Not in the PTSD sense either.
Nice try youngbuck
>being on chans for holy fuck who knows how long
>life down the drain
>it was a good ride
>nobody wants to believe oldfag status anyhow
I do have some good stories though. And elderly like advice. Would any body be onboard for an oldbot general?
its literally unavoidable
I did everything socially, went to parties, did drugs, did idiotic 18 year old shit, had the time of my fucking life it was incredible, then life hits you hard and you realize just how much responsibility life requires. If you've never had an existential crisis be ready for it, its going to put some shit in your head
Tell me all of your mistakes and how to avoid them
One of my biggest mistakes is putting my future aside to accommodate someone I was genuinely in love with.
I think the saddest part is she used to be someone I had a lot of respect for and truthfully I lost myself a long the way.
I'd love that seeing as the last one was hijacked by normies.
Weave us stories, mighty soothsayer.
I don't feel old, but I feel like I'm on the verge of getting to the point where I need to grow up soon.
I'm 22, still live at home, poorfag NEET, virgin, never had a gf, don't know how to cook for the most part, etc.
I'm going to make some changes this year.
>tfw 24 and loving it
Anyone still in his 20's, who refers to himself as "old", is a complete faggot. You're at the absolute peak of your youth, fitness, and intelligence. I don't know any 30 year old who can pull an all night party and still go into work for 12 hours, but I regularly work long hours on a farm and regularly drink all night long. And find time to work out. My friends in their 30's can barely knock back a couple of beers before they have to scurry home for their bedtimes. Don't believe the meme, you're still young and stupid.
When I turned 22 I was in the middle of a drug binge that landed me in the psych ward.
The moment my age really hit me was at 19 when I realised that everyone in porn was going to become progressively younger than me
if you really want to experience the "party" lifestyle book two week holiday in thailand/magaluf/ibiza, and stay in hostels filled with chads and stacies out there to "travel" and "explore" themselves.
I guarantee you would have seen all there is to see after three days, and you will be sick of it after four
I still haven't had sex, I just drink a lot and I work because I moved away from my abusive parents when I was 18, all my "friends" are just people I meet at the bar because drinking's how I deal with it all. And I love showing up the older guys I work with, with my energy. They can often pick up heavier things but they can't work as fast as hard for as long. Your body starts going to shit when you hit 30, from what I can tell. Enjoy it while it lasts.
The final stretch before wizard-dom.
Enjoy your well deserved powers anon.
I have similar tales, as I'm sure many of us do. It was heard to learn that you have to always put your self first. That doesn't have to be a bad thing. Loved ones come at a very close second place but if you have a bad feeling always trust your gut.
I will do that soon, maybe tonight. I'll find a way to let you know its me, if that even matters
As was mentioned before in this thread say yes to more social things. Luckily at times i've had coworkers who would pick me up and mislead me into going to events. it always seemed like a chore and was awkward for me but in the end most of them were fun. Also dedicate time to developing a skill. I am barely learning the guitar right now and when i practice i think to myself i'd be better if i'd started years ago but i probably watched youtube instead. Couldn't name half the shit i watched so it was a waste of time. I wish i'd spend all that time on video games learning a language or something. Instant gratification is still awesome. I guess it's easier to regret things than it is to plan for your future.
On the subject of women i have many tales. More bad than good but i've had success inspite of myself. No intricate strategy just don't give up so easy. Girls are ingrained to want them to chase you, but it's better more subtle than blatant in my experience. More on that later
