Welcome to the quarter century club, some of what you can look forward

-A decreased confidence level.
-Being attracted to girls way younger than you and not realizing that's
-Watching the Olympics and feeling like you wasted your life because
kids 10 years younger than you are participating.
-A decreased metabolic rate.
-This is the year where your fast twitch muscle tissue starts
disappearing if you don't use it.
-More and more suspicion of whether you will ever marry.
-Being home from your mission long enough to graduate from college but
realizing you still haven't.
-Not understanding youth and hip clothes they sell at the mall.
-Decreased car insurance rates.
-Ability to rent a car.

And these are just the ones I could think of off the top of my head.

Thanks, Dave. Sounds like an exciting time of life.

As a fellow 25 year-old, I can vouch for nearly all of these. I've put on a shocking amount of weight this year.

Just wait til you get to the half century club, or even worse yet get close to the three quarters century club! Have a happy birthday.
