Yeah, this makes sense. When I was little I used to say that I couldn't wait to be 18. 16-18 were probably my favorite years. 17 had some extreme highs (theater, meeting Josh, graduation, getting a car, going to college...) and lows (my mom having cancer and going through surgery and chemo, crashing my dad's car, my grandfather's death).
The description still fits me now. I still feel like a teenager, minus the 'i hate my parents' part and the gossip.
I really do not feel my age. I feel more like 4 or 5 years younger. Maybe it's because that particular year (2000) was a mess and I never really bounced back from that.
You Are 17 Years Old
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.
