I can't believe my birthday is in two weeks.

The 10th of April. I'll turn 25. I'm still 18 in my head though.

Early congrats!
Meanwhile, I am 53, but in my head... basically, 15. ;D

Thanks @Jmacyk, I've got no doubts you're a young fellow at heart. I've got two good buddies, 32 and 46, who both couldn't subscribe and use a forum to save their lives.  ::)
Always interesting to participate on forums like here where age limits are sort of muffled by our unrealistic nick-names and common passions and interests.

Gosh, 15 - I don't think I'd like to be 15 again. Or even 20. After all, back then I was still dreaming, now I'm living the dreams :D
My best decade I think was my 30s, but I feel great as I am now - 45 ;D

Never said I liked being 15  :-[
But, yes, really, who I am inside sort of swings from age to age. Most of the time I like who I am now. I even like the grey hair.  ;D

Love means never having to say you're sorry.  ;)
(Yes, not entirely a propos here, but it popped into my head  ;D )
Though if I wasn't married....

There's a song by the German rock band Tocotronic which is called "Ich habe 23 Jahre mit mir verbracht" - "I spend 23 years with myself." May not be your kind of music and I guess you don't understand German, but it still is your song of the moment.  ;D

You're fated to go out on a horse, in a big desert plain, in the direction of the rising sun.
I'm fated to go out on a sledge pulled by big direwolves, in the arctic white, in the direction of the rising moon.
 :D

(2 days off the winter solstice, but close enough ;))

 August 26th is my birthday - summer time when I lived in UK, pretty cool now I'm in Oz. If I say I could be Jmacky's mum, can we leave the actual age bit there? In my head I'm about 28 and having a fantastic time ;D

Ma? Ma? It's me! Don't you recognize me, Ma?
(Well, I couldn't think of anything genuinely funny to say, so this had to substitute.)
Yes! Leave out the actual age.  ;D. As was said elsewhere, it's nice that no one here really cares about it.  ;)

I'll be 24 on the 6th of May. Coincidentally, it is also the International No Diet Day (yes, that's a real thing), which is a nice day to have on one's birthday!  ;D
