    Default Everyone Says As You Get Older You Mature

    Somehow, I just don't see that happening. I went to college and I got less mature, one can only hope this cycle continues.
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    Not true. When I was a freshman everybody used to play the "Penis" game.

    Now I'm a sophomore and no one does it; reference to it elicits derisive remarks such as "Stupid freshmen!"

    I got religion, then I got miserable.

    Well, I'm only 22, but thus far I think I've got better at hiding my imaturity.

    I've gotten more mature about a few things.

    Still pretty lazy though.

    For me at that stage (leaving home) it represented a switch from "enforced maturity" (enforced by parents and teachers who thought it their job to help me grow up right) to "voluntary maturity". So I guess there was a little backsliding in the maturity department at first, 'til I found my own natural, self-imposed level.

    I'm not very mature yet either, but I'm slowly starting to get the idea that one should learn more than one week before some exams. Maybe if this trend continues I can finish uni when I'm 50 and be somewhat disciplined as well.

    I think it's only true if you get married. Women will drag you kicking and screaming into maturity.

    LOL. Then you'd be sailing aboard the good ship S.S. KukriKhan. I don't recommend it as a career-path. Kukri says: "Get as much schooling as you can possibly afford, and finish it successfully."

    It'll make your 20's, 30's, and even 50's much better and easier to survive.
