Not a rant today! Isn't that amazing? ☺

So I was thinking, isn't in weird how age seems so relative?

When I was back in high school, in the second-last year, students in the final year seemed so much more mature and older. It was entirely psychological, even if they were the same age, or acted less mature, by virtue of being one year ahead in school, why, they were practically adults already. And meanwhile the kids a year under us, why, they may as well be fresh from junior high.

Then, a decade later (well, 12 years), and you're in a corporate environment, then suddenly even your colleagues 10 years your senior don't seem that much more mature and older. Maybe it's 'cause there's plenty of older people in their late 50s and 60s so it stretches the relativity scale out a bit.

But even so, now I look back, and the schoolkids all the look the same age to me: young. Fresh out of school? Same, may as well still be in school. 20? All look the same to me.

Oh well, one of the things about growing up that isn't completely terrible, I guess
