As I—an eternally tired millennial in her late 20s—grow older, I often wonder what kind of a grandparent/grand aunt/cat-lady-next-door I'd be in a few decades' time. Will my youthful rebellion and zest for adventure survive the passage of time or will I spend my later years conforming to agist stereotypes of what old people should do, wear, and consume? While only time will give me the answer to that, if I'm even half as cool as the badass elderly relatives of these 25 netizens, I'd happily consider myself to have been blessed with a life well-lived:
