Depends on what you study and if mommy and daddy are supporting you or not.

The best part about college was that I could wake up whenever the fuck I wanted.

That's the only thing that has changed for me.

Oh, and I have a lot more disposable income now, but that's the case for everyone.

pre 30 i would have said that college/early 20s is where its at. no longer. being an adult is where its at. in so many ways.

I don't think one can say that a certain "phase" in life is better or worse than any other.

Each has it's own trials and tribulations and joys.

Well I would imagine that being old and dying sucks

What if you're old and dying but at peace with everything and death?

Being very old I can see sucky, but in that circumstance I can see death as being a great thing.

Excluding the death phase I think you make a very good point. However, young and without real responsibility is something most adults look back upon fondly. I guess it's not such a demarcation for clock punchers, union members, etc. but for people with challenging positions those days of freedom keep a certain nostalgic shine to them.

do not agree. some phases of life absolutely suck ass. i mean, ask a doc, maybe an oral surgeon who worked like a maniac in residency and made no money, and then pulls out wisdom teeth 9-5 and makes half a mil a year, or an associate lawyer that has to work over 3000 hours a year and then becomes partner and plays golf all day, if one phase of life crushed another?

i mean, i know i have phases of my life that are way better than others. sure, i mean hopefully even in harder times there are things in ones life that dont suck, but overall, i had some great things happen in my life in harder times, like the birth of some of my children, thank g-d. but i think some phases are way better than others. just my opinion of course.

my grand father in law passed away at 95 i think. he saw all his children and grandchildren get married, and had many great grand children sit on his knee. he stated clearly he was happy and at peace, and ready to move on from this earth.

I did the partying when i was 16/17/18. I took university as an opportunity to turn a new leaf, and the academic side of it was they bit I enjoyed most. By my last year I was well ready to leave and earn some money. It was daunting, sure, but - going out and having a good time, or treating yourself to a new suit, or what have you and knowing you've earned it - literally and metaphorically - can't be beat.

Had a good time too. Parents and I went up into the Adirondacks, where my grandmother lives, and took her out to dinner at the restaurant at a nice resort near her home. Food was not as good as it usually is, but it was definitely a nice time.

I wish I could move there. She is set back from a country road, surrounded by the woods. Swampy marsh across the road so she sees deer, beavers, turkeys, turtles, etc. Too bad there aren't any jobs up there. frown.gif

I think there is a lot of "Youth is wasted on the young".

I mean, I had no conception of how much free time I truly had in college. I was never someone to study a lot (there's really a point where more studying is not at all worth it) but between studying, working 1-2 part time jobs (not crazy hours though), and the minimal amount of time actually spent in class, I actually had a ton of time to do whatever. Of course a lot of that time was spent lounging around doing nothing.

I'd always think I was busy but...now I have coworkers with commutes longer than my typical class+homework time on a non-work-day.
