List Rules Vote up the feelings (good or bad) that you also felt the morning after your 21st birthday.

Turning 21 years old in America is special for so many reasons, however we all know that the main one is being able to (legally) drink! Despite this, there are a few feelings shared throughout the country as we all turn this glorious age, the strongest of which is the sudden realization that your teen years are well behind you.

So, what are the most common thoughts that run through your head after your 21st birthday? The first one will most likely be the sensation that your brain was slowly extracted through your eyes and will require an unhealthy amount of fast food and coffee. I'm talking, of course, about the hangover. Then after the hangover comes the inevitable flood of regret as you begin to remember, or remember what you've forgotten, about last night! Tell us what you were first feeling after your 21st birthday, and upvote the feelings below which one are the most familiar.
