We are in our late 50's and still feel pretty young. We do a lot of things everyday. We don't see young people doing much these days and it surprises us. Most of the people we know are younger then us and do nothing all day but watch TV and sit around in their homes. Their houses are nasty too! I wouldn't know what to do if we didn't do something positive everyday. I don't have a lot of time to spend on the computer cause we are always busy doing something to make our lives a lot better. So how old are you and what do you do with your life daily?

Hi Calai618. At least you know that you need to do something outside of your home. 24 wow your still young enough to learn. It is good that you can stay on the computer and earn money from it. What do you do for a living?

I am a licensed (freelance) interior designer and a part time graphic artist. I spent all of my time at home and I only go out when I need do some field work. I am really computer-dependent..a bit of a geek..but I love myself like this hehe..I am not the type who loves partying or going out. I find joy in spending my time at home.. hehe

Wow you got a great job. We don't like partying it is just too much for us. We party with a few friends but that is mainly on Friday nights. I am a computer geek too. I got my first computer and didn't even know how to turn it on had to call the company that I brought it from to learn how to turn it on and how to get on the internet at first. Now I can do almost anything I want to do from the computer. But I can't get the exercise we need daily sitting on the computer. We love to do all kinds of things so it is easy for us to find a way to exercise everyday. It is good that you love yourself. I know the feeling of being able to work when I need or want to but not really having to work everyday. Have a great day.

Hi, free_man. I am stay at home mom of three. My son is in school. Soon my two girls will be in school later on this year too. I am 31 years old. I do my housework that needs to be done in my apartment. And no doubt, I keep my home very clean. I never was a woman to keep my house nasty and dirty. I can't stand a nasty home. I do online jobs to make extra cash until I can find me something that will allow me to earn an residual income amount every month. I am not where I may want to be financially, but I am where I want to be mentally. Me, being, lazy??? I have no time to be lazy. I am always constantly doing this and doing that. When I get your age, I will probably be just as busy! I can never sit around doing nothing all day long. I will get bored. I am always doing something to preoccupy my time.

Hi Cream. Sounds like you have a busy life and don't have time for much enjoyment. I am one of those people that have to stay busy. It keeps my mind sharp and keeps me in good health thank God I can always find something to keep my body and mind busy.

25 Wow your only half my age. I loved being 25 but I wouldn't trade the years I have under my belt. I love being older but I wouldn't have missed those young years for nothing. It is smart to keep your mind active and alert. This site helps me keep my mind sharp. Thanks you have a great day.

God will bless you for helping others. Your still young and have a long life span ahead of you keep up the good work. And always stay 29 in your heart. I tell everyone when they ask my age that I will always be 29 but I am way older then that in years. We don't feel as old as we are we have a lot of fun everyday.

Hello Xannebull. That is good that you are contented. Do you work on your yard? Heck we like flowers and trees and stuff to make out yard look good. Your still very young and have a lot of life left in you. Get your children outside and get them to help you do gardening they will thank you for that experience when they are older. Have a great day. How old are your children? It is a great thing to be buying your own home.
