Signs you're getting older.

Posted 01 September 2011 - 07:52 AM

Today I shit you not my birthday creeped up on me.

For my entire life I've always counted down the days to my birthday two months in advance, and just this morning I looked at the calendar to see when the deadline for this website I'm making is; and it hits me. My birthday is next Tuesday.

How did that completely sneak up on me like that? It still blows my mind when I think about it, another year gone by so fast. Christmas was just last week! What the fuck?

How can you tell you're getting older? When I was young (11,12) the years would CRAWL by.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I think a cosign of getting older is when you walk into Walmart, ask yourself "now what the hell did I need here?", then wander around aimlessly. Also, when you start going off on random tangents about how the pie is only half-baked.

It is an unwritten rule that one cannot make an announcement thread for themselves. Tacky, it is. no2pencil or skyhawk133 will have to make the official NeoTifa streaking and throwing confetti and sparklers thread. :P

[USA] People born in 1994 can vote in next year's presidential election.

A year ago I was registering for a forum, and it required that a member be born before 1997. I thought that was an odd requirement, until I realized that people born in 1997 would be 13.

The fact that I have to go work every day leads me to believe that I might possibly be aging.

I like work. I just don't think of as work, more like "I get to fiddle around with cool tools and build toys all morning". I'm blessed. :D

I figure when ever my testicles drop and my voice stops cracking I'll be older. I think that happens when you turn 35.

I feel old when people call bands like the Offspring, Oasis and Papa Roach etc old school. Or games. People call Mario Kart 64 old school! I remember the day that came out. The other day we were desucssing the Master System, and my mate was like "what the hells that", I said it was what came before the Mega Drive (Genesis) and he did not know what that was, or a SNES! It took right upto the N64/Playstation 1 before he knew what we were talking about!

I feel older because I died a little inside when I saw how you just spelled 'discussing'.

I do honestly forget birthdays. If you ask me how old I am, I'll pause. Not because I don't want to tell you, but I'm often not sure. After a certain point, it's just another year.

I did a strange, impromptu, walk down memory lane yesterday. Searching for something in my drawer, I realized I'd had the same drawer full of crap longer than some of my cooworkers have been alive.

Some of the dated stuff I found, to give you an idea:
