Decades ago once you turned 30 you were expected to settle into your career or lifestyle and it was "too late" to change it. Nowadays people like to think 30 isn't "old" anymore so they can still live like they want.

Today's 30 year olds party like they're in their early 20's.
Oh, I see. Well depends what you mean by "back in the day". People born in the 50s were pretty much doomed to have the same job/career forever. My mother's old job ever was teaching, per example. I guess part time jobs and such for people aged 16 to 30 where not a "rule" until the 80s-90s or something.

Depends what do you mean by partying. I'm only 26 so I have no idea what people aged 33-38 are doing out there, but I'm pretty sure most people I know around my age have already outgrown their going out every Friday night to get drunk.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"

Old people in the 70's looked old as hell.

For example I watched the movie Jaws from 1975 the other day. The parents of the boy (aged around 8-10) died earlier in the movie, and the parents looked like grandparents. They looked like 60 year olds, whereas in the movie they were only intended to be around 30-40 at most. And this is from a 70's movie.

I have no idea why old people looked so "old" back then. Even in the first Rocky movie, Rocky's trainer was 69 in real life at the time the movie was made and he looked like an old man. Meanwhile Sylvester Stallone himself was 69 when Creed came out in 2015....and he looks far younger at aged 69 in 2015 than his trainer Mickey looked back in Rocky 1 in 1979 who was also 69 at that time.

Well, for one thing, maybe actors and celebrities back in the 70s didn't have access to medical technology which was advanced enough to give them plastic surgery?

And let's not forget that back then, life expectancy was lower on average. Also, we still didn't know much about the dangers of tobacco and alcohol abuse like we do nowadays. Although there's still lots of smokers, and I have no idea if the people you've mentioned as examples in your post partook in that or not.

It's just so funny when you watch old movies from the 80's and 90's, and look at the elderly actors at the time and think about how old they are....but in real life they were only in their 50's-60's at the time.

For example James Earl Jones in Coming to America in the 80's looks the same as he does now, whereas back then he was only in his 60's. Now he is 86.

Compared to how I actually talk on here, I'm actually only 16 years old, I'll be 17 next month.

Oh man, I'm sorry to know that.

In all seriousness, I dunno about yourself, but I wasn't very happy when I was 15-17. That was the height of "being a teenager sucks". If you happen to be going a crappy phase right now, then chin up because it will be over before you know it.By the time you're graduating HS you'll notice you've changed significantly in the previous 3-4 years. Also, get ready, because once yo hit 18-19 years old, time will start to fly, but ESPECIALLY after you hit 22. I'm 26 and barely remember being 22-23. And it's not just due to all the alcohol I've consumed in 2013-2014, trust me.

...wow can't believe I've attempted to give out life advice in this thread.

Go for it, I'm all for fandoms as a base of support and empowerment particularly for younger people.
