Know the Feeling - I don't think of myself as a specific age, but certainly live a life somewhat younger than I am biologically. If anything I did things in reverse - I was alot more of a stay at home type 30 yrs ago than now. It's mainly the Health side that reminds me how old i am. The settling down, Mortgage/Children etc - all the compromises society requires of you when you get on that treadmill, we've never made, and that's what keeps us young.

Yeah, same here -in my twenties I was too busy making up for having started studying music a little late (like 18 yo instead of 8) so I was busy practising 5 hours a day, etc.

I had a mortgage at some point, back in Caracas. That went very strange ways. Here, to get my tiny little studio I never managed to get a mortgage (it was 2009 and, in the words of the Man from Barclay's, I was a bit old, self employed, earned a little bit too little and, the clincher, my accountant was too good) so the bank gave me a humongous personal loan instead.

Is it time to get a Harley and ride down from NYC to LA? Or was I supposed to do that twenty years ago when I started getting past middle age? :D
