    How old do you feel?

    I'm 23 and would say I feel about 18.

    Depends what time of day it is, how long it is since I took my medication and the likelihood of Ashwin having to miss the last two Tests

    It's largely contingent on how much I've drunk the night before and the proximity of reflective surfaces.

    I'm 30. Mentally, I still feel pretty young. I've definitely matured emotionally past my youth but in terms of things I enjoy doing I'd say I'm still in my "youth". I go to at least one concert a month, I still stay up to all hours of the night every night etc. Working nights at the moment hasn't helped my mental maturation. Honestly, despite my obvious shortcomings as a human I really like the person I've become. I used to be an emotional rollercoaster who based my happiness on whether I had someone else to prop it up, but now I've definitely grown into a person who determines his own happiness and is quite comfortable with who he is.

    Physically, I feel much older than I am. I have tendonitis in my right achilles and my left ankle is busted as well with frequent pinched nerves after over a decade of rolled ankles. I have a permanently broken scaphoid bone in my left wrist which is in good condition still but the arthritis is coming. My eyesight is getting blurrier by the day and I do notice my hearing is iffy (though that could be all the metal and hardcore gigs I go to, but I wear band-quality earplugs so I doubt it). I also get frequent back spasms and get lower back discomfort after lifting basically anything of consequence. My right shoulder is a bit off as well, I partially dislocated it last year and its been a bit sore ever since. Only flares up after cricket though haha. A good 15 years of sport and getting the **** smashed out of me in metalcore/hardcore pits have really aged me haha.

    Do you still feel younger than you thought you would be now?

    I've barely even started feeling old yet

    Feel a couple of years younger after I bust my ass in the gym for a month or two every time. But then I look at the mirror and say, "Who the **** am I kidding? It's over."
