What Makes You Feel Old
CorDrine Posted: Wed Feb 21 10:25:46 2007 Post | Quote in Reply  
  What kinda things makes you feel old?
For me:
When I find myself drinking too much coffee.
When I am falling sick more often then usual.
When teenages blast their mobile phone device in public places and annoys me.
Whenever I eat porriage I feel old.
From 9am - 5pm during weekdays I feel like I've age a million years.
When I look at the pile of laundry I have to do weekly, that makes me feel old too.

What about you guys?

dang...that's old!

: )


I feel old when:

I look at a thread here on music and realize I've never heard of most of the groups.

I look in the mirror and see my dark brown eyebrows being replaced by light grey ones.

I play 3 sets of tennis and walk around for hours like I'm 80 years old afterwards.

I have a choice between going out to a bar or sitting on my back deck trying to identify the birds at my feeder, and I choose sitting on my back deck.

I have a choice between having sex or sitting on my back deck trying to identify the birds at my feeder, and I choose sitting on my back deck.

  -when buildings you remember start disappearing and get replaced
-when you meet people and say "it must have been like what? 5 years?"
-when you start talking to people about tv programs that don't exist anymore and get all nostalgic about it
-when you say "kids these days"
-when you make lists about what makes you feel old

I know..that's why I took it off. I didn't get where I'm at in the world today by putting up avatar pics that hurt people's feelings

  Watching my kids grow up fast and seeing them starting school, but remembering when I was their age. That seems like a long time ago.

In much the same way, watching some of the kids who were in my elementary daycare 6 years ago, go through high school and prepare to graduate. Most of them are now taller than me and some of them are going into the armed forces and part of me still thinks they are too young.

Thinking that college football players are all younger than me, when for so long they seemed so much older than me.

Seeing people I have graduated with or known in my youth, but not remembering their names.

Knowing that my kids now look at me and my brothers the same way we looked at my parents and our aunts and uncles and realizing that soon my parents will be gone and my brothers and I will be the vangaurd of the family.

Reading my journals from high school and remembering the events as if they were yesterday but realizing that many of them were between 10 and 13 years ago.

Aches I don't remember having yesterday.

and those are the highlights I can think of...

For what it's worth...

  Seeing children reading,

- and sitting in unusual positions.

When I'm given extra responsibility at work.

Waking up in the morning and looking forward to the day ahead...

..then realizing, I don't play anymore.

  -taking care of more things then i want to.

-never feeling rested.

-given a choice between bars and going to bed early and reading a book I pick going to bed early. unless it's a lezzie bar... fun times last saturday night.

-the fact i want children now. i use to remember hating them intensely... i still dislike them half the time but i imagine myself having one.

-not being able to relate to anyone between 18-25. i don't know anything about their culture. i love stuff from earlier times.

-preparing for my wedding. I have to remember to get everyone's address for the invites.
