I'm probably going to sound like a faggy little kid here, but I've just been thinking about my childhood and teenage years. I'm nearly 18, and while this isn't exactly old, it's making me realize that with every year which passes, I miss a lot of chances to be having a great time. Younger people have it easy - they can go to school, come home at the end of the day and do whatever they want. You can go to the park, party hard with your friends, do drugs, etc. Whatever the fuck you want.
But when you get older, how much of this changes? Should I be making the most of these years before I get stuck in full-time employment, or can you still have an awesome life when you're older?
I realize I've probably got this completely wrong, and I'm not being ignorant - simply misinformed. So, you older folk - fill me in.
