Top Ten Ages

The Top Ten
1 18

Eighteen is the best age in my opinion. Your awkward, moody teen years are over, you can now do whatever in the world you want (except for drinking). You get to graduate high school, go to college, get a job you wanted for years, and start a family. You can have freedom, and you are now a citizen on Earth.

You're legally an adult, need to get out of your parents' house, get a job, get a car, but you can't drink alcohol or smoke marijuana and cigarettes. Drinking and smoking are still illegal at that age.

Excellent, elegant, epic age eighteen! Adulthood is finally here! Time for high school graduation and college! You are counted as an official citizen on Earth!

2 13

I joined the emo subculture when I was 13, and I don't regret a single thing about it. My 13th birthday in August 2019 was great as well. I also remember staying home alone for the very first time, learning how to sew, and my November 2019 trip to Seattle when I was 13 years old.

Unfortunately, 8th grade (2019 - 2020) sucked, and I started getting breakouts of acne all over my face.

What a spectacular way to begin teenagehood! The definition of "teenager" is a kid developing into a man! But look out for those pubescent mood swings. Age 13 is usually when they develop.

3 21

This deserves number one! Yes, you technically become an adult at 18, but by the time you are 21 (and legally allowed to drink in the US), you are actually able to settle for good decisions in your adult life.

You finally get to drink after all these years! No more holding back, just getting drunk! Then the next morning, there's suddenly a tiger in your bathroom when you have to pee! Wow, hard life.

I was 21 in 1966. That's when I met my wife.

4 16

Well, this obviously varies a lot for everybody because different things happen in different years for different people, but I think that's one of the good things about this list. Jake09 did a good job making this list.

My vote goes to 16 because it is honestly the age at which I learned the most so far in my life and worked out the most things, like what I want to do and facts of life and expectations. That happens for a lot of people at 16 because it's when you first properly start to become an adult, and after a load of the hormones.

Sixteen is a very important year. It is also the year when many people do exams and coursework at school.

5 5

Age 5 is excellent! It's like, amazing! Making new friends, using words in sentences all the time, and kindergarten. What more could a 5-year-old ask for?

Being 5 years old should be number one, not 18 years old! I loved being 5 years old because being a kindergartner was fun!

I had the best time of my life when I was 5 years old and in kindergarten.

I can't believe 2011 was 10 years ago already.

6 0

I remember sixteen years ago like it was yesterday. That hospital was nice. I remember that blanket the strange nurse wrapped me in and this strange person next to me who was smiling but looked very tired.

I remember 2004 like it was yesterday! I came home from the hospital in St. Cloud! I came to my dad and my older sister! It was great, even though I don't remember anything at all!

Oh, this age is adorable! It's when you are a stubby little baby and you are getting introduced to the world.

7 22
8 14

All right, age 14! Give me the puberty! Give me the growth! The maturity! Age fourteen is a great place to be! And guess what? This is usually the age where guys grow beards!

I'd look pretty wicked with a beard on!

I'm 14. It's awesome. Just came out as bisexual this year.

Growing the natural, well-trimmed mustache.

9 10

This was an amazing year. I was a carefree 4th grader who did fun things all the time. I discovered interesting facts, made friends, and had the BEST teacher ever!

I didn't even get homework because my teacher said it didn't help kids and just made them hate school. It was great.

It was a great year, but for my body, just ew. I started puberty way earlier than I should have, and it was distressing. And I think I'm possibly done.

I graduated from elementary school when I was 10 years old.

10 15

Three years left until adulthood and counting! Age fifteen is one of the most tubular years of teenage life! Where the chicks hook up with the dudes and the dudes hook up with the chicks, you can take driver's ed, high school, and many more!

My parents started letting me stay home alone overnight when I turned 15.

The Contenders
11 12

The awesome and radical age number twelve! Puberty becomes more obvious, you are old enough to be home alone for a whole day, and maybe even dating!

Twelve is such a magical age! And so begins the last third of childhood, too! Oh yeah!

The age when haircut places count you as an adult. That's pretty sweet!

I'm choosing 12 because that was the year I was in 6th grade (which was amazing), and I got three new best friends! Except that was only a year ago!

12 9

The halfway mark of childhood is a great halfway mark! Age nine is the start of your path to thinking of what your future job will be. Maturity is even more inevitable at this age.

What's not to love about age nine?

It was pretty cool. I started fourth grade with my amazing teacher.

13 17

Seventeen is an awesome age because, although you are still considered a child by law, you're technically already a young adult. The responsibilities that come with turning 18 start to become more apparent after 11th or 12th grade.

But even then, late teens (ages 17-19) are still young and, of course, teenagers. You can go out and have fun wild parties with your friends while enjoying your last few years of high school or your first years at college.

Seventeen gives you a lot of opportunities. (I'm not seventeen yet, though.) Seventeen is also my lucky number.

14 1

Again, just watching cartoons and lying on the couch all day. You could also take a nap whenever you wanted to.

Age 1 is awesome! This is when you learn about certain sounds and sights in the world.

Nothing to do but play! No homework and NO responsibilities!

15 8

Pretty fun. I was in second grade. I did some fun things this year with my family, started exploring my creativity more, and made one new friend.

The only bad part was that my teacher wouldn't let us have parties because we were "too old," even though older kids, like 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade, had them.

You become more mature at this age and usually your parents will give you more responsibility. Also, you make more genuine friendships.

Most of the friends I had and made when I was 8 are still friends with me to this day.

16 23

I went to Vegas. My first visit was when I was 2, but at 23, I am now allowed to be in the casinos and sit at the slot machines.

17 25

I think this is the best age because you are old enough to do anything and be independent. Yet, you're still young enough to be relatively healthy and fit. Most people might choose 21, but even then you're sometimes still regarded as naive or inexperienced since it's your first year being able to drink.

18 20

This is the age you leave your teen years behind and can reasonably consider yourself an adult.

I miss being 18-20. It was the sweet spot between adolescence and full-fledged adulthood.

You are an adult and not too old either. I am not 20, but if there is an age I would choose to be forever, it's 20 (might change my mind...).

19 38
20 61
21 100
22 11

This was the year I stopped talking to my toxic friends, started wearing makeup, made new friends, and found all my interests that I still like today. My whole 5th-grade class was so fun, and we all felt like a huge friend group. Even the teacher was amazing.

Eleven was cool! I was in 5th grade this year (well, also the beginning of 6th grade) with a SUPER AWESOME teacher. (The only bad thing is that he gave out lots of homework).

I also had lots of friends and did fun things. One bad part of being 11 is that I had a lot of fights with one of my friends. But it's a great year!

23 30
24 3

Aw, age 3. Such a great time in life. Also, 3 is the magic number when it comes to development and learning in the first years of life.

For physical learning, you've got eating hard foods, talking, and putting together puzzles. For educational learning, you've got letters, numbers, words, counting, and reading. Good times.

25 4

Nothing beats looking back on those days. I moved up to Canberra, and my age was the same as Gordon's number on Thomas the Tank Engine. He was my favorite character.

Age 4 rocks and rules! This age is not just a huge developmental stage, but it's when school starts! Dun dun dun! But hey, what could go wrong with the first years of school?

I went to NYC for the first time when I was about 4. I visited the original Twin Towers.
