what period did you enjoy the most and why?
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 5:53:18 PM EST
Roaring 20s!

Then again, I'm only 28.

When I was little and could look up womens skirts and still get away with it.

College at a small private liberal arts school. Great weather, great food, great people, great books, great music. I had so much fun. Too bad I could only afford a year.

The rest of my college education was at a place that was the opposite of all that. Tremendous regret I settled for a lame school.

certainly not now.

Id have to say the year 1989, graduated highschool, badass hairband music, girls were easy, and I didnt have a care in the world, LIfe was just easier.

17-26.

Damn sure wasn't today.

I'd say late '70's-early 80's

In my youth below the age of 10. No cares in the world.

What I term as a normal childhood with kids playing in the streets is now a relic of the past.

College, all three times.

Same period for me, but I didn't go to college. But I'm sure glad my friends did

Right now.

College was fun, having toddlers in the house is better.

Same here. Especially the four years of college.

High School. Didn't know it at the time either. It was fun growing up in the 80's.

Now that I'm 36, i can honestly say that i miss the 11-20 years old stage, even younger. Sure i drank & fooled around with girls in my teens & twenty's. But that innocence that you have when you're a little kid is irreplaceable. I see it every day in my little ones.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 6:06:25 PM EST
Very hard to say. There was a two year period where I dated my wife, was going to college, and worked as a mall ninja. They were great times ... but we also fought like caged wombats.

Every age has had points where they were the best. I'm worried about the next 5 years when my daughter becomes a young teenager. I don't want that happening so soon. I've spent the last 9 years trying to fix up the house, make money, and give her a life that I would have loved. Now it's going to slip away before I can enjoy it with her.

I'm going to bed.

Believe it or not, teen years. School was easy, I went horseback riding every day (weather permitting), didn't have to work, and had relatively few chores at home. Early 20's is a close second.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 6:09:05 PM EST
Looking back, 1-20 was the worst. 20-40 really has been spectacular, with only three bad years in there in retrospect.

I am making an effort sure ensure 40-50 is just as good.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 6:14:54 PM EST
from 19 to 22 maybe. Without going into my life history,il just say ive been through a lot
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 6:15:59 PM EST
25 ~ 32 and 36 ~ 44, but they were for different reasons.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 6:17:09 PM EST
Good job, great wife, my own place outside of town, safe full of guns and good prospects for the future. I can't think of a better time in my life, other than wishing my Dad was still here to share it.

I voted 21-30, because that was when I was in the police academy. I was the most physically fit I've ever been in my life, I weighed 147 pounds and wore a size ten (I'm 5'9") and was engaged to be married. I remember driving home on the weekend before I was to be married, in my pretty nice Honda Prelude, on a sunny crisp fall day, and feeling like I was walking on clouds.

It's been some time since then but I look forward to feeling that way again soon. The trick is to have goals, and when you meet them, make new ones. Since I've gotten soft, my next goal is to reach the top 20% of physical fitness for my age range and to get credit card debt and loan debt free. I think it's feasible and getting there is half the fun.

Interesting the sharp drop after age 30. Marriage?

You know in Office Space where Peter is explaining to the hypnotist how every day is worse than the day before, so every day you see him, its on the worst day of his life?

I'm kind of the exact opposite. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with my age.

ETA: I am about to turn 30, so maybe it's downhill from there.

I think that largely depends on the person. Marriage has been very good to me and I wouldn't be as happy as I am now if I were single. I hope my husband feels the same.

This data should also be compared to polls done on the current age of Arfcommers, and the hours that different age groups log on.

Yup!
I'm 53, gonna be 54 in 6 days.
Now is the best time of my life.
I did everything when I was younger and I actually survived!!!
The kids in their 20's or 30's (maybe even the 40's) are pretty much clueless....
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 6:44:41 PM EST
21-29

Lived in L.A. from 21-26 (I was right in the middle of it. None of that I live in L.A. but in Thousand Oaks BS) I lived on Franklin and Whitley.

Then moved to Vegas from 26-29. Lived right off of Sahara and Decatur and had a view of the strip from my balcony.

Now, I live in the fucking sticks and turn 30 in a month.

Definently now at age 24. Good paying job, married to a great woman, son on the way, and in decent shape.


My childhood wasn't as carefree as most have so I can't say those years.
