    I don't think it's totally an age thing, I think it just depends on the people. I have some friends who love going out getting trashed every weekend, and some who would rather spend their nights at home watching Dr Who. My boyfriend's older than me by 5 years and his friends are the same. I know 30 year olds who go out, get into fights, make idiots of themselves etc. and 20 year olds who couldn't care less *shrugs* I think I'm probably a little of both
    I've stopped going to parties with people I don't like though, it's such a waste of time!

    I guess I'm a mixture of both....on a day-to-day basis I would say I'm pretty grown up. I have quite a 'serious' job, I love playing wife (cooking for my boyfriend etc.) but then every month or so, I go away for a weekend with my girl friends and act like I'm 16 again, getting drunk, gossiping, playing Never Ever Have I Ever etc. For me, it's important to have that balance.

    True story... I'm not a chap who goes out often - maybe once or twice per uni term - but when I do, the whirling hair brings the metal wherever I go.

    I do sometimes - the main thing that keeps me from going is a 9am lecture on Tuesday I have to get up at 7am for! Was there last week on the Monday. Fun times. I blew my voice half out.

    Well, in this case, I think age does have to do with it seeing as literally every single person my age besides like four people here I absolutely can't stand.
    They all are so obnoxious and seem to have not a thought in their brain except 'Let's get f*cked up!'
    My older friends are still goofy and can be immature, but overall they have much better heads on their shoulders and don't act like total rtards all the time.
    Two of them are only a year or two older than me, but they do act like they're 20-21 as opposed to 19-20.
    Then again, the people my age are probably still gonna act this way in a few years, they just suck.

    The guys at work all seem to love a good piss-up, of which I've been to one. Though I'm possibly the oddest one working there, which I still attribute to being twonked on the head with that stick. In retrospect I should have gone to a doctor when it happened, but what am I gonna do? It goes GMG a bit that they describe my piercings as weird, THEY are the odd ones. Not me. Despite my constant Arnie quotes.
