The Worst Day Of My Interior Life Today

Sun Oct 22, 2006 11:13 am

I never ever share personal stuff on any forum, including this one... but I guess there's always an exception.

It wasn't that long ago, at least in my mind, that I was doing this like this with my childhood friends, on those long and careless summer days when the sun didn't go down well past 9 in the evening: Like dressing up for February Night in my working class neighborhood.





Fast forward some years [[FF]]... So one of those friends had a baby about a year or so ago. Now up to this point I was like 'hey, that's so amazing and nice', but today for the first time the thought officially hit me:

I am getting OLD.

More to the point, I felt old for the first time in my entire life. Now, the girl had this baby young (at around 20), but it is still not enough to shake this horrible feeling that I can't be irresponsible and carefree anymore. It really is a horrible feeling. I know to most of you this will be trivial or outright will not care (and rightfully so as I just can see the 'you think you are old??' comments). But to me it is a big deal right now, as it is making me depressed. I always thought having people my age having kids was like eons in the future, now it hit me at once that it's here... Sad

So it wasn't the worst day of my life, thankfully everyone I know and care for is doing well, but it is the worst of my 'inside' life.

On a brighter note, here's the baby in question from my childhood friend, nice and fat!

Well man, I'm at basically the same stage in my life. I'm 24, going to be 25 in a few months. Over the past 2 years, I've been to 5 weddings. One of my friends has a baby girl who just turned a year old (who I finally just met the other day). I also quit drinking 6 months ago, so my hard-partying days are quite definitely behind me. These days I'm much more apt to stay in and go to sleep (relatively) early on any given weekend night.

So yeah, it's a whole time of transformation in my and others' lives. It's so markedly different from where I've been over the past 6 years, that it's sometimes startling. But at the same time, I'm still enjoying life. Still have my hobbies and interests that I pursue, and still have my good friends.

So my advice is just to enjoy where you are right now. Hell, you're only as old as you feel, right?

I'm just having a hard time partying after working all afternoon, and then working again in the morning. I used to be able to do it like that, but the last few times I was like heck no. Well, I feel I still could do it, but maybe I can't as much as I did. And I haven't had any official weddings yet by my really closer friends, only acquaintances from school or work, most of whom I have met only recently. When my close friends start getting married, then I will go into full panic I think.

On a bright note I haven't quit drinking, hahaha. But good for you. Thankfully I never have had a problem with drinking too much. I can drink a lot on a weekend and then not taste alcohol for months.



I guess the only difference between me and the gentleman in the picture above is that those long hairs are still dark brown... and have still saved nature a tree for the cane.

You are right of course, and it will help in a day or so, but not tonight. Thanks for the thoughts however.

Ha, tell me about it... I'm 23, and one of my classmates from high school already has a 2-year-old girl. I already went through that "oh sh*t, I'm getting old!" phase, and I still get that feeling at times. Having 2 sisters ages 10 and 5 doesn't help, either... and it also doesn't help having total strangers ask me, "are they yours?"  irked 

Just relax, enjoy your life one day at a time. And have lots of fun!

As a side note, that's such a beautiful baby your friend has.  cheerful

Yes, and right now it didn't help thinking that when I first started posting here:

1. I was still in HIGH SCHOOL
2. There were only 3 forums (2 I think when I started visiting)
3. It was FREE to... err... sign up.
4. The Argentine Peso was 2 cents stronger than the US dollar, and much stronger than the Euro.
5. I hadn't met my most important girlfriend yet.

When I turned 20 I felt grown up.

When I turned 25 I felt a bit old.

When I turned 30 I felt a bit older.

I'm going to be 35 next year and that's going to be a bit of a biggie. There's no way I can consider myself a kid anymore...externally, anyway. I'm going to be past the 'safe' age for having children! How the heck did that happen? I thought I had all the time in the world!

But you know what? So what! As my ex-boss once put it, growing older sure beats the alternative. And sure, things are different now than when I was 18 or 23 or 27 but that's okay...I'm happy with where I am now. I've had a lot of great experiences that I've only gained with time.

So no matter what age you are - raise a glass and toast life - be glad you have your health, your family, your friends, your SELF.
But that was when I ruled the world

I am getting OLD. More to the point, I felt old for the first time in my entire life.

I know exactly how you feel Derico. I recently turned 30 (with full respect to ANCFlyer ) and I feel very much behind the 8 ball myself.

I guess the reason is that a lot of my friends are 7 or 8 years younger than me. I worked for 7 years before starting tertiary education, thus all my uni friends are only 22 or 23 years old.

I also feel "old" because all the people I went to high school with are now several years into a career, climbing up the corporate ladder and establishing themselves. Many are married, have kids, property and are generally making their way up in life. It is even worse when I realise that some of my younger friends are ahead of me as well ?.

On the flip side, I still get on really well with the younger people at university, and I can confidently say that I consider many of them to be very good friends. It almost as if I simultaneously get accepted by them as an equal as well as getting a bit of respect for being older.

Anyway, what can you do? I definitely think that life proceeds at "different rates" for different people. I have much less of an idea who I am and what I want to do with life than ever before.

Sometimes I do wish I was at the same stage of life as my fellow students from high school, but circumstances just didn't turn out that way. In a certain way, it is actually good how events have turned out. I now posses both trade and academic qualifications that give me many more opportunities than I would have if I only had one of them alone.

Try not to worry about it now, you have the rest of your life to feel old ?. As for going out partying and drinking? Now I just "save" up a few weekends worth of socialising and have an absolute blinder at the end of each month. A younger person once told me that he hopes he will still be drinking as much as me when he turns 30!

I know the feeling. I feel something similar the days I'm either very depressed or simply pissed off about something (mostly work related). I'm 24, but sometimes I do feel like I'm 36 or even 40. In my case, it's mostly because I simply missed out on too many things and because I feel I haven't experienced the things I should have experienced in my teenage years and even today.

Just remember: you're still young, so try to focus on making a good life before you decide to settle down, get married and have kids. You still have plenty of time to experience many more things.  Smile

This does happen, I guess - the first sense of advancing age, but it's best to forget about it and not worry too much. I was morbidly depressed about the idea of turning 30, but guess what, I didn't turn into Skidmarks overnight (thank God !) - age is really a state of mind, inside I still feel like I'm 16 and that any day now I'm going to get found out and sent back to school ! Don't sweat advancing age, just cherish your inner child and that will keep you young.

Im 26 and sometimes I feel old. A girl a few months younger than me is on her 3rd kid. But hell, thinking about that I would definatly NOT want to be on kid number 1 or 3 for that matter..
I only refuse to change my profile because my new age range contains the number 3. But thinking about it now, its not all that bad. Im a happy person, every weekend there is something different happening and it gets better and better!
Wouldnt you rather have this time up until you are 30 to do what you want to do rather than have a child make up your mind for you?
Enjoy it whilst you can and be happy.. Hell thats what im doing..
Infact, im going to change my age bracket now. Im proud to be the happiest 26 year old on the planet...  Smile

JetMech all I can say is that you are better off the your 22 and 23 year old friends regardless of your age simply because you have worked for 7 years and probably have gain a lot of knowledge. Now that you cannot buy regardless of how much you have been educated especially in country like Australia. Does it really matter if you study that late in life?

(general response to the latest replies)

I guess what really bothered most is that around me some people are starting to 'settle' with another person. Now, I wouldn't really have a problem finding somoene to settle with, but I just don't want to do it right now! It was really bothering me yesterday, but now that I had some sleep I think I was overplaying the importance of that.

Feeling old?

In my life I attended only one "new" school. It had been built the year before and only one class of students had been there before I was. There was not even any grafitti in the lockers.

I drove past it in August. It is being torn down. It got too old. You can start to feel old when you've outlived a building.

Stop wasting your youth worrying about getting old, 'cause you ain't there yet. Plenty of time to worry when you're 40+. Get out, have some fun, meet women, that's what life's about in your 20's.  Wink

You know what they say though, "40 is the new 20".

Yes. That's it. I'll just keep telling myself that. 40 is the new 20. 40 is the new 20. 40 is the new 20. I am still young and beautiful. 40 is the new 20...

I was just teasing. So have you climbed down off the window ledge yet ?

My dirty mind thought this was some sort of coded sexual reference, but well, yes I'm not on the ledge. One thing going for me is that I have never seriously had such thoughts, even in the worst moments.

Glad to hear it ! Absolutely no point in worrying about silly things like getting older. Enjoy each day as it comes.

I didn't specifically, just made an assumption. Half the time I do that. That is the definition of a dirty mind!

Something funny I've found is that I don't feel old because I'm growing up, I feel old because everyone else is growing up.

My best friend's sister, whom I met as a 10-year-old girl, is now in her first year of college... My 'little' cousin is now a highschooler (and taller than me)... Two of my younger brother's classmates are getting married in December... Another cousin, who is not much older than me, is already expecting her 2nd child... And the list goes on and on and on...  old 
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

No pity here, Derico.

I turned 50 on the 16th. Now THAT'S fuckin' old. I was going to post my obituary as I'm no longer acknowleging future birthdays. Not a whole lot to look foreward to at this age.

In his last writing, Hunter Thompson's said this;

"No more walking, no more swimming, no more fun. Sixty-seven. That’s 17 years past 50, 17 more than I wanted or needed. I’m always grumpy, all the time. No fun for anybody. Relax. This won’t hurt much."

And to post this thread thinking that 25 is old. Ha- freakin' HA!



See ya on the other side, Hunter.

Does it really matter if you study that late in life?

G'day VHVXB  Smile. My concern is not so much with returning to study - which was one of the best decisions I ever made - but the younger people I am friends with at uni: and I mean that in the nicest possible way.

These people are great friends, and I get on very well with these guys not only when studying, but when we go out and socialise; and that's what gets me. I will be having a great time, acting carefree as any person in there early 20's then all of a sudden I will realise that I am 30. I look at the position other 30 year olds are in life and realise that I am no where near that.

What also frightens me is the maturity of some of my uni friends. There is no way in hell I could have come to uni when I was 18 and have been settled enough to concentrate on my studies like these guys. Some of these guys also scare me as they have amazing wisdom and insight for their age.

But as you said, I am very lucky in that I have several years of work experience under my belt already. I would even dare say that there are some 30 year olds who wish that they also had such a carefree life.

I guess what really bothered most is that around me some people are starting to 'settle' with another person. Now, I wouldn't really have a problem finding somoene to settle with, but I just don't want to do it right now!

Settling with someone is not a matter of when you want to do it. It is something that will 'happen' one day. I married at 25 and have a 6 y.o. and a 3 y.o. My sister got married 2 months ago at 36. We happened to have found the person we wanted to settle with at different ages.
