Any events recently remind you that you're getting older?
« on: May 28, 2010, 06:01:12 PM »
Today is my sister's 13th birthday.  (Edit: I also have to add that she's the "baby" of the family -- she's the youngest amongst us and our cousins on both sides of the family)  In about three months, I will be 18.  It feels like yesterday that she was only 10.  Then again, that was when I had a social life.

Well, not older, but two girls that were in my grade, one of whom I was very close with, passed away this week.

Makes me realize how short life is.

Well, I went to the Class of 2010's graduation yesterday.
That pretty much reminded me that I'm getting older and that I'm going to be a Senior next year.
Scary thought.

What does this mean?

On topic: The search for a college I guess. I want to take it easy, but I'm kind of being rushed.

Paradoxically, my next and last year of high school, as it'll be "only" one more year, but also a "whole 'nother" year.
I dunno hao 2 put imgs heer :(

"/Thread" is a way to just say "End question; No need to ask anymore. It's redundant"

That being said, Dubai.

I'm nearing 19 and am getting more and more forgetful. That's all I can think about.

So then, you forgot the rest of your list?

That just about tops anything else in this thread.

As for me, just the process of looking for colleges, etc. It reminds me of the good old days when I didn't have to worry about jobs, cars, rejection letters, paying for college, leaving home, making my own dinner, doing my own laundry, etc. The simple things that my parents used to do for me? Done. And after college, it isn't back home to my family, it's out to find my own home. Fuck man, I only get a little over a year left of living here. All I feel is old right now.
I get obsessively manic over things. It's a problem.

My niece is turning eight later this month. Eight years ago, I was a seven year old uncle.

Yeah, this pretty much tops everything.

Watching DBZ, the show I used to watch as a kid, with my four year old daughter.  Also, having two children (I had to top Mystic, since it was called untoppable.)

Oh and becoming an uncle eight weeks ago made me feel older too.
