    “The last four years of your twenties” isn’t a thing. Honestly, I don’t know how you are able to concentrate and study anything at university because you are so obsessed with age. What do you want us to say? “Live it up because these are the last good years of your life!” “Once you hit thirty, everything goes down the tubes, so have fun!” You’re going to believe whatever you want to believe. and clearly age matters a LOT to you. Whatever. I usually forget how old I am, and I’ve been that way since I was 20. My life has nothing to do with my age.

    I imagine this will vary from person to person. I don’t think an age becomes your favourite because it’s 26 or 27 or 28 or 29. It becomes your favourite because of whatever it was that you experienced in that year that made it particularly memorable. The age is really irrelevant.

    Why the obsession over the last 4 years of your 20’s? What exactly do you think will happen when you turn 30?? If life ends at 30 then someone forgot to tell me 😉

    I look at life as trial and error, life is a glass half full. While some yrs weren’t as pleasant as some other yrs in my 20s, my late 20s (which im in) have been the most “healthiest”. I’m more grounded, mature, level headed, my relationship and friendships are healthy, etc. My life experiences will be different from yours so I suggest putting aside atleast 1 day a month (or week if you can) and live out your best life. Do something that makes you happy. I don’t know you so idk what that’d be. I like traveling, thrill activities, diy projects, dressing up, etc. I personally don’t set aside 1 day each month, I just go with the flow (I suggested you set 1 day aside since your schooling with consume your time).

    Also I agree that being obsessed and fixated on your age/numbers is not healthy. You may want to look into OCD patherns with numbers.

    Do you actually want to take the time to respond to people and let them know why you are so concerned about your late 20s?

    Lol, girl, what? Don’t be so obsessed about time that you forget to enjoy your life. I mean, what are you gonna do whith the last four hours of today? You’ll never get them back! What about the last four minute of this hour?

    Damn, I just wasted the last 4 seconds of this minute….

    briaharris23 :  Do you know why you’re so obsessed with age and numbers? I’m actually really curious. I think we’d all like to know. Seriously, I wanna know. Lol.
