anyone else done this recently?
and strangely become more focused on what I want to achieve - having a full grey beard.
today: my knee ached
yesterday: i was jealous of the schoolkids on the bus
remind myself I am only 22. I feel like I'm 30.
almost 24! wow. hmm. although i think its more to do with being stuck in a job that bores me senseless, in a place that bores me senseless with only one person here i can talk to...
need some life changes init.
was the biggest mistake you ever made
well, some of us will, but I'm afraid others will always resent you for rejecting us.
for some reason chichester is full of portsmouth people and they give me flak every other day for being from southampton. the big idiots.
Or a man by random small children. Very strange...
to 'stop bothering the woman' after a particularly ebullient five year old tries to take your bag off you.
"Mind that man" to her child. :(
increasing in regularity, intensity and recovery time.
Seeing sixth formers on the train and realising they're 8/9 years younger than you. :(
I'm still "down" with the "kids" *snaps fingers like only your dad can do*
now I've decided not to
I do as well. And fuck me it hurts to pull out.
I was once give a lecture on how it can become infected and mess you up
recently. i struggle to stay up past 11pm and will sleep until 9am if undisturbed.
but this is kinda normal. when i was a teenager i'd spend a year staying up until 1am and then a year where i'd be alseep by 10pm..
I've gotta say...I'm a vast improvement over the younger me.
I feel a bit retarded, like I've always been a few years behind everyone else of my age...distinctly remember a girl asking me out when I was 11, and just being into the Beano and stuff
and some of my friends are starting to have kids.
I feel like I should be calming down and acting more mature but it seems boring
Some people were moving in the house next to me the other day and said to my girlfriend 'hope they're not students'.
I still haven't found any, and I'm 54
Thought I would have achieved something by now.
im sacrificing muzak making time for job application time and stuff
Although both my leg are aching this morning. For no apparent reason. Apart from cramp, that's a good reason.
for the opening of a new dental school. A nice day out in a part of the world I like, although somewhat tiring. And I got to spend some time ogling students in the University section of the City.
Anyway. I was the only member of the dental press present, and took my place alongside a representative of the Lancashire Evening Press and a local TV News Crew. Because I was the only one who, to an extent, understood what was happening, the lovely PR lady took me under her wing and made sure that I was looked after. She was a slightly plump woman of around 35-40. Like, clearly mid-30's. No ambiguity about it.
I was making some small talk about carrying an umbrella and it being a sign of maturity, and feeling quite old when I looked at all of the students.
She said: "Well, that's just what happens when you get to our age, isn't it? Marriage and kids take over and the past seems so far away!"
OUR AGE? She was at least ten years older than me. At least. Do I really look 35?? I was slightly depressed after this. I'm older than I think I am.
Yours depressingly, bamos, aged 35 3/4
I like this story, it starts like a Victorian murder mystery.
N.B there is always Ten Years Younger makeover option.
also, i have a client in preston who isnt paying me money. want to go visit him today?
What's he not paying for? Do I have to use menaces?
he owes us booking fee
feeling old :(
I feel i'll have lost "it" by then.
And by that i mean be a well brilliant musician. I've somehow managed to convince myself that I could be brilliant, despite having nothing of any worth to show for it.
Anyway, i can't start now, while I still live at home, so it's gonna have to be at uni. But i suspect i'll get there and then not concentrate on it and just be a lazy cunt there too.
So basically, after I get to about 25, i don't know what i'm gonna do with myself.
hand around schools with your hands deep in your pockets trying to recapture your lost youth through molestation of pre-teens>??
I might hang myself when im 27. That'd actually be pretty cool.
hair starts to grow OUT of ears
women offer to trim your unkept eyebrows
who posted in this thread are younger than me. that makes me feel old.
I start a diet next week. 35 3/4 is attainable, if I eat only celery and wear corsets.
how it was to feel young...
not really noticed it in myself. Although, I have noticed people around me getting older. Most of my friends seem to be getting engaged now and 2 are already married. Some were even talking about buying houses. For some reason this really depressed me.
does that make me old?
Getting really grumpy and bitter towards everyone.
Much prefering the idea of staying in alone watching a film or reading a book to going out.
Finding drinking and parties a lot less exciting.
I'm not even eighteen yet. I think this may have more to do with my anti-social moods than getting older..
I don't understand technology at all, prticularly mobile phones and computery nonsense.
I talk to myself, have a dreadful memory and write notes to remind me about things.
I wasn't 20 yesterday. I thought it would be really depressing as the crushing realisation set in that, despite being alive for 20 years, I've done absolutely nothing, but I feel pretty much the same as I did yesterday. Just have a baddish hangover. Actually, that's probably because I'm getting old. :(
but I don't act it. ever.
Go me Mr Maturity
subsequently getting quite lonely too.
been 30 for nearly a week. Can't say much has changed, but that is because I've had a bad back and dodgy knees for years. My memory sucks, and if I need a new mobile phone I get my wife to sort it out because mobile phones confuse me. I worry about my son, and can't wait to organise the mortgage once the two year fixed-rate is up because then I can get the bathroom and the kitchen done, and treat myself to an estate car. One big enough to get my golf clubs in the back
i'm spending this afternoon having what will probably turn out to be my last good-looking haircut, due to my ridiculous hairline.
i'm going to try and make the most of this cut.
Start wearing a 'fro wig?
and spend the rest of my days looking weirder than i do now.
On the one hand I'm thoroughly disappointed that I have so little to show for my 29 years...a failed marriage, shit job blah blah blah. I always thought I'd be 'set up' by now. On the other hand My life has been more super fantastic from 27 onwards than when I was younger and I've had loads more fun. I've also been refused alcohol twice in the last 2 weeks as I have no ID. BONUS!
