    Things that make you feel young

    when people past their mid 20s talk about being in college or announce they are graduating (undergrad).

    when you are younger than most people in your graduating year (which was the case for me in high school and college).

    when you are applying for jobs, making that trek through a city on foot to hand in your application, and high school students ask you what high school you go to.

    when teenage boys hit on you, and ask you what school you go to.

    Talking to my Grandma.

    Serious Adults.

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    looking through records at swap meets. overhearing people of the generation who grew up with my fav music talk about it.

    feeling legitimately bummed out when i heard that hello kitty con weekend admission is sold out (but this also makes me feel old cuz there's a possibility i may have to babysit a 4 yr old that day who likely will demand gifts).

    I dunno, having sex. Maybe that's kind of obvious. My body doesn't seem to exist except as aging matter otherwise. I have a very detached relationship with it when I'm not dating.

    maybe "things that make you feel your age" would've been a fitting title? 20s to 30s is still young, really...

    wearing a backpack, esp if i'm using it for school, will make me feel like a kid, always. (i'm still using my old jansports; if you take care of the zippers, those things never die.)

    Mentioning video games around people who are no more than 10 yrs. older than me and have children. Their response is usually something like:

    "Oh my son/daughter likes those too!"

    When women at work refer to me to with baby names and all my coworkers have children older than me and one of my employees has grandchildren near my age.

    I don't like it.
