So, I was super bored tonight, because of no new show, and I also didn't feel like writing (because I suck), so I figured I'd catch up on some of my timelining and watch Blood Brother 8x05 again...


Firstly, yes, Supernatural has indeed done the "soap-opera year" and despite being "one year later", it is still somehow 2012.

Secondly, Kevin Tran's date of birth is December 2nd 1993, making him nearly 19 years old, which is actually a little old to be starting university, isn't it? Maybe he did an extra year of kindergarten like yours truly...all the smart kids do it, I hear which is exactly the right age to be starting university, good job, Kevin!

Kevin is also an Agnostic, and he's using a credit card under the pseudonym Kevin Park.

We also get to find out Amelia's DOB: April 20th 1980, making her three years older than Sam.

Anyway, that was my fun for the evening. :)

19 kind of makes sense if his birthday's in december, I think, because of grade cut-off dates. And even beyond that, there's a friend of mine who is six months younger than I am, but she graduated from college in 2008 as opposed to my 2006. Hmm, let me think about this.

Being born in December, he wouldn't have started kindergarten in 1998, because of school cut off dates, which means he would have started in the fall of '99. (Urgh, I'm old. I was in my second year of high school). And that means he graduated high school in June 2012, if I'm doing my math right, meaning he'd be starting college right before his 19th birthday. Ta-da!

Ah cool! So he's not old at all. I don't know what the heck is the usual for the states (or anywhere) anymore. I, too, am old, and also in a different country where the rules are sometimes different depending what province you are living in. :)

I will correct the post!

Glad to help :) There's a good deal of variation between states and counties and school districts here too, but as much as they different places might fudge things elsewhere (notable mention goes to a district I know of that has "pre-first", an extra grade for kids that finished kindergarten but aren't ready for first grade), some things stay the same. And I'd be pretty much in the dark for this but for working three years for the Girl Scouts, where these issues came up a lot.
