    Are you feeling like the years are starting to kick in yet?
    Being 32 is doing it to me


    Examples-

    - I feel like im turning into my father sometimes, even getting the same habits

    -Now when I piss, It's hard to fart without sharting in my pants

    -Forgetting too much, stuff that I should'nt be forgetting. Even after I reminded myself a few times

    -Saying "huh' alot, even though I heard what was said (old man habit?)

    -Making old man noises when I get up from a recliner

    -Checking out 19 years olds, then thinking "what's wrong with me, she's 19!"

    -Having convos with senior citizens at various places, but equally, adult to adult about adult situations

    -Listening to the stuff I used to make fun of the parents for listening to, like Sinatra(who rules)

    -Turning DOWN the car radio, so I can 'think'
    Used to just blast the damn thing, and they would never go loud enough


    The list goes on and on, and some things are actually wayyyy better now (penis experience points FTW
    Look foward to walmart electric cart aisle raging though. Watch your feet!


    Anyone feeling it?

    Oh yeah, I'm there and I haven't even gotten out of my late 20's. I think the back problem kick started it though.

    I have definitely started to feel it too.

    -Bones ache if it's cold

    -Always complaining about the little things that are really just stupid

    -Seem to be getting lots of grays lately

    -And also checking out 18-19 year olds and then shaking my head in shame afterward

    What the hell is wrong with checking out 19 year olds?

    Oh don't worry, Chaos Muffin, turning down the music in your car doesn't mean you're getting old!

    I keep my music low all the time, to actually be able to think. I have no idea how other teenagers can have their music so loud!

    I turned 30 this year, and don't do any of those things. the only "getting old" thing I do is check out how much grey hair I have. other than that, when I look at 19 year-olds, I'm reminded of the classic line from dazed and confused--"the thing I like about high school girls is that I keep getting older and older, and they stay the same age." :lol

    When I check out a 19 year old, I say to myself "What the hell am I thinking, there are plenty of 18 year olds to check out!"

    Dude, my grey hair count has tripled, Ive cut down on my food intake and still gain weight, I have back and knee problems, my cholesterol is border line, and I swear Im showing diabetic symptoms. So what the hell, lets keep looking at 19 year olds while my eyesight is still good.

    I'm only 26, but I've felt like a crabby old man since my first tour.

    I find myself bitching and moaning for no good reason about...well, everything. But I just figured that's life.

    Definitely CM! I am now at ripe old age of 33 and among the symptons I've experienced thus far:

    - Checking my bald spot every day to see if it's gotten bigger
    - Rather sleep at 11pm than do anything else.. and I used to stay up til 4am on regular basis
    - Remember all the good ole days when me and my friends hit the clubs and drink the night away.. and that's only 4-5 years ago
    - Worry about how I am gonna put my kid through college.. may start selling some of my priced collections soon (I am looking at you Overlord)
    - Getting high pressure already.. was on medication last year but may get another check up to see it's still above normal


    I am pretty sure I'll start having a mid life crisis in a couple of years... buying new sports car, getting hair transplant, and flirting with 19 year olds... all that good stuff.

    The only time I feel old is when I hang out with my younger friends. I went back to College at 25 so I frequently end up at parties with 18 and 19 year olds.

    Physically I feel as good as I did when I was 18 (I'm 29). I went through a period in my mid 20's where I felt like dog shit every day, but then I refocused my life and got more active. I'm back playing hockey at a high level again (For my College team), and in the best shape I have been since I was about 21. I actually still work harder in practice then the young guys.

    The only thing I notice is that my recovery time isn't quite what it was when I was younger, but that's only a minor annoyance.

    Feeling old.

    - A lot of gray hairs on the side
    - Music is always too loud in the car
    - Hate most teenagers
    - Taking vitamins daily now
    - Can't stay up past 1am, maybe 2am on a good night
    - Pooping is no longer a 5 minute adventure

    Dude no lie, I have to reserve the bathroom in advance so I have enough time to poo. Sometimes I eat pretty well and my bowels act as though nothing has passed through in years.

    The realization that I've been out of high school almost half my life put things into perspective for me.

    I feel old sometimes got arthritis on one knee and in my lower back from old injuries so when the weather's bad I'm in pain but I deal with it. My doctor has me on a low sodium diet because I have high blood pressure. Unfortunately I have the luxury of working for the Township I grew up in and find myself telling others how things used to be and how the mall was different or pointing out houses that people I used to know lived in.
