ZELLA COMPTON: Think hard: is it really worth going to uni?

Have your say

I still have all my hair and none of it is grey. Everything still works perfectly (touch wood) and I’m fitter than I was when I turned 21.

So turning 40 on Tuesday has not been a problem for me. It’s only when we reach adulthood that we can truly begin to enjoy life’s riches.

Until 21 I reckon you’re growing, learning and working your way up the ladder.

For me, I’ve only had 19 years of adulthood, so in that respect I still feel like a teenager!

That means you won’t see a convertible car parked outside the front of my house or me going to get a Harry Styles haircut.

I’m happy in my skin. That is something I couldn’t say at 21.
