30. 31 in July.

9/11/01 was my second week of classes for my first year of college.
I never listened to current music; I listened mostly to 60s music in high school.
I was in my 2nd year of college. I didn't have class until noon that day, and about 20 minutes after I got there was when they decided to close the campus. What a weird afternoon.

Well this makes me feel young, I think I was in 3rd grade, I was sitting in mrs. Trent's class when we were informed classes were canceled for the rest of the day(I think) but I have no idea if we left school early or not, and if so how our parents were contacted. Robz do you remember what happened, were we all moved to the church? Or did we just hang out the rest of the day?

Lies, mrs Trent taught fourth grade. You were in fourth, I was in eighth. They didn't send us home, I don't think. We just talked about it in class.

oohhhhhh, 5th grade was still on the first floor, duh, third grade was the other building. Your right, I was 9 what can I say it's hard to remember. But I do remember not going to any other classes, because I was not in mrs. Trent's homeroom(I had mrs. miller) but I spent the rest of the day in mrs. trent's class.

You know that horrid day, June 6th, 2006? The one that looks like 6/6/06 when written out in that form? The day that people were praying not to have their children born on?

Yeah, I turned 13 that day.

I'm basically the spawn of the devil.

Happy Birthday Young Nick! You are missed.

Yay, thanks!

Here is my awesome cake (complete with boardgames in the background. Some terrible, some pretty damn great):



And here are a couple of my gift tags. They're awesome but kinda NSFW-ish:

I'm surprised I'm only just now seeing this thread.

I tend to consider people's ages in terms of the Disney movie they were born after.  Being born in December 1989, I'm a Little Mermaid baby.  On 9/11, I was in 6th grade - they gathered us all in one classroom in the afternoon to tell us, and I distinctly remember one little girl saying "I can't believe that building I rode up and down in an elevator in is gone."

Despite my youth, I grew up watching Looney Tunes as my Saturday morning cartoons, and I have the utmost and deepest respect for their comic genius.

Coincidentally, I share a birthday with Frank Sinatra (month and day, not year, obviously), and I'm not too bad at the singing.

I turn 24 at the end of this year.

I'm in my late 20s.

I was a freshman in college on 9/11.  I heard about what had happened when news in my Physics class.  My professor was understandably upset by the news, and later became a relatively serious contender to be the Libertarian presidential nominee here in the US.

Much of my undergraduate and graduate school years involved the anti-war movement.

I was born in the 14th state the year Ronald Reagan was elected president.

I grew up in a hunting culture, it was very common for guns to be in schools (mostly the students). And my high school had a walk in gun safe that you could leave your firearm in during the  day. (Wow things have changed.)

My first video game system was a used Atari.

My first tabletop game was Steve Jackson's Car Wars.

Oh, and I lived one mile from school growing up in a rural area. Taking the bus took an hour and forty-five minutes because I was the first picked up and the last dropped off. So I would walk to school (only took about forty-five minutes). There was a hill on the trip so I literally walked to school in the snow up hill both ways :) But I always wore shoes!

I was born on Mark Twain's one hundred sixty-second birthday, which makes me either fifteen or sixteen; I can never remember.

My birthdate, written in dmyy format, is one of three powers of two that can be so written.

I remember being in classrooms that had a single Microbee or Apple IIe computer that you had to arrange a turn at using.

I remember working on a class project and trying to find a TV station to play in the background that wasn't covering Princess Diana's death (there wasn't one).

I remember having to get up at about 6am on Wednesdays to attend 8am maths classes in the last couple of years of high school, and on one such morning being woken by one of my parents and thinking "yeah yeah, I'm getting up" only to be told that there'd been a terrorist attack in the US.

I remember getting our first VCR a year or two before I started school (a VHS, thankfully, I think at the time Betamax still had a little life left in it). We also had a stereo system that included AM/FM radio, two cassette decks (including one with a recording function), a turntable and a state-of-the-art CD player.
