I'm an artist- I went to school for animation. I want to go back to get a degree in Illustration/Cartooning so I can go into comics, or pursue some other venue to get the training I need to get my comics going.

It's a little annoying to me that people look at me and say I'm college aged when I am much older than 18-24, or 25.
Comic book artists use thought balloons. I'm not a senior citizen yet.

If someone refers to "college-aged" people, they typically mean 18-22 years old. Of course other-aged people attend college, but the no-brainer, common-sense reference would be the age of people when they traditionally, normally go off to university.
If someone is mistaking you for younger than your years, enjoy it while you can.
I use high-falutant vocabulary. People don't care if I am a Christian, or if I have a high IQ, or what my interests are. I don't say a word, and people label me as a nerd or geek. And they judge me based on age.
I went back to school at 40 for another four years. Don't whine at me, I don't have patience for it - I agree with a previous poster (not looking back just now, but that was a good post) about coming into one's own the next time around in schooling.
