    I'll be 25 this July, but generally get along better with an older crowd. My boyfriend and I hang out with his step brother's crew and they're all 31+. I readily admit I like to be home by 11 and sleeping at midnight most weekends :P "old before your time" as they say.

    Arafo is Japanese-corrupted English for "ARound FOrty". There is also Arasa for around thirty (or "saati" if you can't pronounce a th sound).
    ...because Japan.

    the group I arrived in had a range of about 21 - 40. Most were somewhere between 23 and 26 with around a third of them older than that.

    Regardless of their age, Jets seem to fit into a few set types fairly quickly (do-gooders, boozers, dorks, travellers, independents, loners off the top of my head). The party types won't care about your vintage, but especially at "official" events the focus is heavily on forced wackiness and you'll need to embrace or at least tolerate that. If you're the kind of person who spends their weekends at gigs or in basement techno clubs, get ready to learn The Macarena or find yourself a more discerning social group.

    Pretty much would sum it up. Attitude of "do I give a shit about others" + "Do I want to be around others". I answer no to both of em.

    He is saying, if you're into non-main stream stuff then you had better get used to hanging with Norms and doing stuff people did at college parties.

    Everything I have ever said was a lie, and that's the truth.

    I'm about to have an Ini moment, but I'm pretty sure the Macarena hasn't been "mainstream" for about 15 years

    I feel like schools aren't encouraging twerking, though... The Macarena, on the other hand, was pretty much an institutionalized dance.

    This basically represents me as well. I'm 23, but have been teaching in Korea for one year. One year of working three jobs in America before that. Graduated college two years ago. Haven't been much of a 23 year old since I was maybe 18. My best friend is 33 and married. I love going to bed at midnight.

    Hey, bed time is a negotiable thing. Doesn't matter how old you are. There was a four month period in HS where I went to bed at 9. These things happen.

    That being said,having been 23 and working will make your rather different from many of the other 22/23 year olds. I see a huge difference between alts who have worked for a year or two, especially if it was independently, so don't worry.
