21 years I think

10

Everybody else analyses you from your hair to your eyebrows to the way you wave your hand. If you start to worry about it and overthinking everything you do, it all just becomes false. So I think — just carry on as you are, do what you do, and get on with it.
Happy 21st birthday, Harry!

The worst feeling in the world is feeling like you have no friends.

anonymous asked:

you realize that you're not isayama, right?

“Um, Anon, I think it’s pretty clear to all of us that I am, in fact, Hajime Isayama, and not a 21-year-old American Caucasian female. I think I know my identity more than you do-”

*identity crisis*

“You have bested me, Anon. I am, in fact, not Hajime Isayama. I apologize to anyone who feels lied to by my deceitful nature.”

  • 10 year old son:Mom can I download this game?
  • Me:Let me check it out real quick first, sometimes games look like they are for kids when they really aren't. What ages does it say it's for?
  • 10 year old son:Oh...oh wait, it says 21+...I don't think...I don't think it is for kids.
  • Me:It says 21 and up? Like, it isn't recommended until three years after you are a legal adult? I don't get it, is it like a drinking game or something?
  • 10 year old son:Well...I guess some day when I'm a real old guy in a robe that's too short, with a pipe and a wife and a glass of wine I will finally be able to download this app.
  • Me:Well buddy, I'm just glad to hear you have life goals.

Hey. I'm a little confused. Is it wise to marry young? Being a 21 year old mom, what do you have to say?

I think a lot of people infantilize the youth.  In fact, the word “teenager“ was not used as a term for people aged 13-19 until after WWII.  Before then, young people were referred to as, well, young people, along with adolescents and youth.  They were seen as inexperienced, but fully capable of doing adult activities and performing mature tasks.

One of these things was marriage.  It was not uncommon back in the day for sixteen year olds to drop out of high school, find a job, and then marry/raise a family.  Instead of being told “you are too young!” they would receive support from their neighbors and family as they started their adult life.

Today, however, we are living in a culture where teenagers are raised to act like kids yet be skilled enough to ace through advanced classes.  “You can’t go to the bathroom without the teacher’s permission, but so help me if you don’t try your hardest to pass your AP biology class!!!!”

Instead of adolescence being a time in life to prove ourselves and earn the title of “hardworking adult” by doing adult things, it’s more of an awkward phase people are stumbling through while being babied and ridiculed at the same time.

What does this have to do with your question, then?

Well, it all has to do with how we now view younger people.  Even though those aged 18-21 are legal adults who can smoke and/or drink along with buy a car and go to school and do other things, they are instead seen as rapscallions who are more or less immature adults.  And it doesn’t help that we are RAISING our youth this way; any youth who are very mature like their ancestors were and are raised as equals have to fight against the grain to start their lives.

This includes marriage.

If I could have had my way, I would have dropped out of my senior year of high school and married at 17.  My body had matured and was ready for babies, I was in love with a childhood friend whom I knew and trusted, and high school was not offering me what I wanted out of life. 

If I had my way, I would have dropped out, gotten married, finished my GED online, and then attended a technical school (maybe massage therapy!) and started out my marriage this way while expecting our first little one. 

I say “Is it wise to marry young?” is not the right question.  Instead we should ask, “Is it wise to treat our young as incapable of making mature choices in life, and force our mature youth to follow the false ideal of teenagehood?”

Yes, people can marry young.  I’ve done it, other people have done it: the success of marriage is weighed not by age, but by the couple’s relationship with God, their devotion to their vocation, and by carefully praying and getting to know the other person in a sufficient manner before tying the knot.

I'm 21 years old now and I dont think I'll start transitioning soon. Would there still be a chance that when I do start transitioning I'd acheive the same results as you or those who started T during their teenage years? I'm very troubled.

T changes are more dependent on the person opposed to age, many people start hormones later in life (40s, 50s and 60s etc.) and get a lot of changes, so don’t worry about it. Just go for it when you’re ready, it’s never too late. 

anonymous asked:

As a 21 year old you should no better than to spread around to a website of teenagers that the system of higher level education is "out to get them"

Have you ever actually thought critically about this? Honestly? Because I don’t think you have.

As a 21 year old who has extensive first hand experience with the higher education system, I don’t have to “know better”. It’s the fucking reality, especially for Millennials. Did you know Millennials (people born between the early 1980′s to the early 2000′s) currently have the highest rate of developing mental illness, especially the ones that are in higher education? (1/2/3 + a general search). The amount of stress placed on Millennials is absolutely ridiculous. We have a 37% unemployment rate (and this was a measure from several years ago), most of us are working at least one job outside of going to school, and Canadians in particular (since I am Canadian) don’t meet the poverty line in regards to the wages they receive.

We grew up in the years where the Internet was born and transformed into a massive public sphere that has a huge effect on social media. We grew up having access to videos and photos of places eons of miles away from us. We grew up being able to talk to people from all across the globe, and we were able to have a more accurate understanding about how the world works, and what other countries are like. We grew up with movies about achieving our dreams, doing what we want, going to fucking space to search for the possibility of other life forms. Of course we’re in a fucking crisis. You know why? Because education is stressful and constricting, especially when you’re forced to decide on a career at 17-18 right after you get out of highschool, before you’re even legally allowed to drink or see a movie by yourself in some places.

Society expects 17-18 year olds to know what they want to do with the rest of their life when they’ve been taught for the last decade that they need to wait for the teacher’s permission before they get to use the fucking bathroom. The average person, worldwide, lives about 71 years. 18 is just barely a quarter of that. A quarter of a person’s lifespan, and they’re expected to have it all figured out.

Point being, yes, the higher education system is out to get us. Because it expects us to be able to conform to a rigid system that forces us to work the equivalent of a full time job, with less breaks and a debt per year of up to $45,000, depending on what university or college you attend. At 20 years old, most individuals owe way more than they’re actually making, and a lot of them have to choose between being able to pay rent and being able to eat if they’re attempting to go to school at the same time. The joke about college students living on Kraft Dinner and rice? It’s not a joke. It’s a reality, because it’s way more fucking affordable than trying to eat healthy. You can buy a box of KD for $1.17 here, and raspberries can cost upwards of $6.00. Is there really a choice, at that point, if you want to be able to keep having a roof over your head?

I don’t need to “know better”, anon. I live this.

Would the Maknae line be into a girl who was born in 2000? But pretty mature for her age.. Thank you~

The oldest in the maknae line is Jimin, and he’s 21 in Korean years I think (19 American years). The youngest is Jungkook, and he’s 19 in Korean years (17 Korean years. And Taehyung is in the middle kind of— Being 21 as well.

A girl born in 2000 is 14 or 15 right now.

For all of them, I think it’d be a solid no.

I don’t think it’d really matter if she was mature for her age, mentally or physically, what’d really matter is that they’re up there and you’re down there.
