Seriously, I am starting to get afraid. I am currently an incoming sophomore (school starts in about ten days for me). The thought of me graduating in two years makes me afraid. I want to remain as a 15 y/o forever and be in High School forever. Seriously, the thought of getting older scares me.

I feel that things start to be not fun anymore as you get older.

I used to not want to grow up too, except not because I wanted to preserve the fun, just that I felt that people cared less about you in general as you got older. I guess I'd say, at least from my experience, it doesn't really go away, you just accept it eventually.

but in any case, the stage at which adulthood should be really not fun is at least a decade and a half down the road, and at that point I assume the fun gets replaced with even more fulfilling emotions.

It's the opposite for me -- I long for an older age. If one can keep the health up and establish a safe haven in terms of finance, there's not much to fear.

The thought that I'm graduating and becoming an adult this year is a bizarre mixture of exhilaration, but also normalcy.

I start school tomorrow, and it feels like just any other day.

Your brain copes better with difficulties as you age. You might have more to think about, and be more self-dependent, but you will likely handle the mental overload better than at a younger age.

Oh good god I thought I was the only one afraid of getting older! I'm 15 to o and the thought I'm graduating in 2 years scares me a bit. Yet at the same time once you're older you'll have more freedom than you do right now.so at least there's a silver lining haha

If I could stay any age forever it definitely wouldn't be 15...

25, that's a solid age to be forever.

22-23 for me. Old enough to be able to do sh!t, but young enough to still have fun.

Everyday you live is another day closer to finding out what happens after death.

Is that something to fear or not?

Anyways, I used to be really afraid of growing up like a year ago, now I'm kind of indifferent about it.

Don't worry about it. As the hit tv show "Off their rockers" demonstrates, it turns out that old fogeys and geezers can have fun too and get away with things that normal people can't, such as be really annoying.

You see, normal people think that old people are crazy, so they don't react in the same way that they would if it was a genius doing it.

Keep being old,

I'm pretty sure that things get more fun as you get older, but that could just be me.
