My personal vote for best years of your life are 25-30 (meaning I topped out a couple of months ago).
Was talking about this with Tom (tiger02) one night, talking about how he kinda missed the 20-25 yrs on army duty. A few of us were around at the time, and we were all like "dont worry about it, the next five are more fun"
Youre smarter, wealthier, more confident etc etc....
Yup, 25 thru 30 was fun.
yeah, I spent the best years of my life on nightly ambushes and patrols, in clothing that was soaked with sweat, often sleeping on the ground, eating cold food that had been canned years before, literally ever day not sure if I was going to get back from that days activities. honestly, I miss it often, although at the time I didn't think I ever would. but I missed the whole party scene that teenagers and college students enjoy, missed out on drugs (for the most part) had extremly little sex, and very little fun.
in terms of high school - I still have a half dozen friends from high school. my high school life wasn't fun, but it wasn't too bad, either. I would recomend, however, not rushing out, unless you are going to do somethign worth while - travel, do an internship, take a course you wouldn't normally take, etc. starting universty 6 months early, or a year early, isn't worth it.
