This is one of those things that’s obvious once you think about it. Obvious AND depressing. People on TikTok are freaking out after realizing they’ve been calculating their birthday wrong. You might actually be older than you think.
An influencer posted a five-second video about it last week that’s racked up millions of views.
It basically boils down to this: When you turn a certain age, you’re not actually starting that age, you’re finishing it. For example, if you just turned 39, it means you’ve finished your 39th year, and you’re currently in year forty.
Again, it’s obvious when you think about it. But it’s rocking people’s worlds.
