Hey there, Bees! You know how people are always saying that certain stages were “the best years of their lives” etc? Now that my undergrad experience is coming to an end, I can’t help but think of all the times I was told that college would be the best years of my life. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been an incredible time, but I can’t help but feel like the best is yet to come.
What would you say were/are “the best years of your life”? Highschool? College? Motherhood? Other? Please explain! 🙂

I’m two years out of college….and by far college wins. I had so much fun and I miss it every day:( High school doesn’t even come close.
I’m pretty hopeful that motherhood is good though!

Ugh. I hope that’s not the case. I remembed college as the years I worked and went to school full time and didn’t have a minute to myself. Good thing I worked graveyards every Friday and Saturday night because I didn’t have money to spend going out ever either.
Honestly I’ve been out and just working for the last 6 years and it’s been so much better than the college years! I have high hopes for the “having babies” period too.

Late 20s, because you are finally making decent money and can pretty much afford to buy what your heart desires, and you are still young enough to go out every night of the week if you want… I swear I never got tired at the age of 28!

College stands out in my mind as “one of the best times of my life.” But, then again, life is pretty darn good now too. Not being a broke college student def helps.

Hah, not high school! And definitely not college, I worked full time and went to school at night so it wasn’t the party experience a lot of people have. I’d say right now is pretty darn awesome. I’ve been in my career for 5 years now and am making strides to move up, I’m married, life is good!

College was for me, a couple years in the middle there rocked.
I don’t expect them to be the best years of my life of all time, though. Just for now. 🙂

Between the ages of 18-21. I was traveling. Doing my own thing. Going to college. Met some really awesome people.

The best years of my life were 22 and 23. I had the most fun and I was still looking pretty good. I just wish I knew my Fiance back then… =/
High school were the 4 worst years of my life and with money issues lately 24-26 haven’t been too great. I only went to college 1 year and dropped out because I didn’t like it and didn’t see the point that was while I was 20. I’ve been a mommy since right after I turned 19.

I hate the idea of the ‘ best years of your life’. I don’t think that there are “best years of your life”, sure some times will be more difficult that others but hopefully we all have high points and great times spread throughout our lives rather than just three or four good years and it all goes downhill from there – how miserable would that be!!

I was just talking to someone about this this morning! That first year after your first child is born is absolutely the best time of your life. There is nothing like you and your DH adoring your first born and growing together and learning how to be a family. Priceless memories.

Oh yea, I’d definitely say that college was a highpoint for me. It’s wonderful to be so unattached with no real responsibility. You get to be young, stupid and selfish. I miss that.

I really haven’t had a period of time that stood out as the “best”. I feel like theres always something that I’m enjoying. In college it was newfound freedom, right out of college it was freedom + money, then it was meeting my husband and now its enjoying my marriage/going back to school.
High school should not be the best years of your life.

My early adulthood has been rife with transition. It’s been a formative time, certainly, but I feel as though the best is (as the OP said) yet to come.

I think that as you get older you look back and those “best years” change. Right now my late 20’s were some of the best years, but prior to that it was college. I’m sure it will change again.
