I'm 36 & don't consider myself old at all. But it was very sobering this year on my birthday to realize I have reached the age my mother was when I turned 16. Holy crap!

When I meet people who were born in the 80s (!) and they are adults now.

when your friends' kids are getting married and having kids
when you listen to new bands and have serious 70s/80s flashbacks
when you go to a bar and all the kids look too young to be drinking
when you gotta have urban dictionary open to understand Interference posts
when you start sounding like your parents
when you start looking like your parents
when you start thinking about retirement
when you start wondering if you'll make it until you retire
when you start to hate everything.

I felt really old last week while on vacation in Vegas. My husband and I did the strip the first day and that was enough for us! I remember when I used to go to Vegas and practically LIVE on the strip for days!!! I actually prefer the low key old Fremont Street part now!!

I'm only going to be 20 in a little less than two months and I am already starting to feel old. My teen years went WAY TOO FAST. I just look at the calender and wonder where the time went.
Some old moments of mine:

- I can't lean over the tub to wash my hair without my back hurting when I stand back up like I could before.
- My knees crack everytime I stand up.
- Finding out I had arthritis in my knees when I was 16.
- Sleeping less and less as the years go by/Problems with insomnia.
- Having problems standing back up after getting down to pick something up.

You'd swear I was 40 instead of 20 with those "make you feel old" moments.

i sorta felt elderly the other day when i was seriously struggling to alight from a parked car. it took me a good 2 minutes and a shitload of rocking momentum to get my ass up and out. to my defense though, we were parked on a 60-degree incline.

yeah, i've had this same thing going on for as long as i remember. i'm only now starting to wonder if it's somehow indicative of a medical problem.

I felt old on Sunday night when we were craving chocolate chip cookies at 9:00, and I excitedly asked, "Should we be wild and stay up late baking cookies?!"

That's what I consider "wild"? Staying up an hour past our usual 10:00 bedtime to bake some cookies?

I give other 25 year olds a bad name.

Just know that there are older folk than you around here. It's all those dang newbies who are bringing down the average!

When friends began having children.....
I felt even older after breaking my leg last year ~ nice case of post-traumatic arthritis
and now after a concert last night I feel even older. Really irritated with some people who pushed their way in front of me, a friend and some other people who had stood there for a couple hours waiting for the main act. They just strolled in as the main act began and planted themselves. Really, really rude!
In the past that stuff bugged me but I would just let it roll off my shoulders. Today I am still feeling rather hostile :crotchetyoldwoman:
