    30 is a good age, no one knows what they're doing in their 20's. Just live your life. Be happy.

    Don't always feel like you have to speak/comment. You can only learn if you are humble; so if you're always getting the last word in, in the back of your mind you're not giving it enough time to process and assimilate.

    Also, personality types is a thing. Figure out you: how you learn, your triggers, whether you're an introvert or extrovert, whether you prefer thoughts/words/actions. Figure out how to be constructive around other personality types. You don't have to take a profile or anything, but you should learn to understand and cooperate with people who are different. Same applies to culture, religion, politics, etc. In other words, don't be a dick. (not personal; something I learned)

    Also, you don't know anything till you're about 26. Even then...

    I've always found the idea of people in their mid-20s complaining about how old they feel to be hysterically stupid. They say "oh my god, I'm SO OLD", but what they mean is "I'm a lazy, boring person and this seems like a convenient excuse to remain that way." I think this must be the next phase of avoiding being an interesting person for the kids who used to tell everyone how random and crazy they were in high school.

    You want life advice? Do something with your youth instead of spending it complaining about how old you feel. I'm 27 and me and my wife just picked up our lives and moved to Thailand for a few months because we've wanted to for years. When we have kids, I don't want to tell them "Oh, yeah, I could have gone halfway across the world and experienced a new culture firsthand, but, you know, 27 is just SO OLD to be doing that kind of thing."

    My wife has a theory that every 3 years or so, you'll think to yourself what an idiot you were 3 years ago and how much more you know about life now than you did then. This cycle will repeat until you're in your mid-50s.

    Triple post-

    Also, don't mistakes having goals and plans, and maturity, as "getting old". Thanks to my mother-in-law's dating life, I've seen plenty of men in their 50s who are incapable of managing their lives without a woman there to do it for them.

    Every day is a gift, regardless of age. Something, something adult diaper.

    When I get my oh **** I'm old moment, I plan to get a fauxhawk to stay "current", or start singing country in a giant stetson, to hide my bald spot. Big belt buckles probably feel kinda manly, I might try that.

    EDIT: This should be in YMAS IMO.

    I call this phenomenon "the morning after".

    There is nothing about MAs in his post. Boff Topic or trollshido and that's about it.
