Smile So I feel older......

Today is my b-day and I have turned 33. I guess I should be ecstatic and going woo-hoo but, for some reason I'm just not feeling it. Maybe I'm just feeling old or perhaps I'm in a new stage in my life where birthdays aren't something that I look forward to as opposed to when I was a kid and I used to wish I was older. What do you old geezers think?

Happy birthday Grandpa
I havent looked forward to a birthday in about 9 years. It's nice to get out with friends and let them buy the drinks, but aside from that, just another day

Re: So I feel older......

33??

Dayyum.........Jimmy

Judging from the content and all around "intellect" level of your posts I'd a sworn you were turning 23

OLD MAN

Actually, 30's = Prime of life (hopefully)

Happy B-day and congrats on making it that far in life, bro (make sure to drink a few for me )

"Inside, we're ageless. And when we talk to ourselves, it's the same person we were talking to, the same age, when we were little. It's the body that is changing around that ageless centre."

- David Lynch

"Knowledge and experience is the process. The more knowledge you have, coupled with experience, the more you go. But the self you talk to I was talking about, that's the one that's sort of ageless. I doesn't mean ignorant, it just means, it just doesn't have an age."

- David Lynch


I'm 26 now, but I don't feel '26'. I'm just Alwin. And I think I'll feel pretty much the same if I were to be say, 50 one day.

So there's my 2 cents.

Happy birthday, Jimmy!

Alwin

What...you're acting like you're supposed to feel OLD at 26???

And don't count on feelin the same physcially when you are 50

But you'll be much more wise (hopefully)

Re: So I feel older......



I don't feel old. I feel that feeling youthful, one can do even when they're 60. Just look at people like Terry Gilliam and David Lynch. They're past 60 and they're really full of spunk!

I also feel that I'll basically feel the same, 20 years from now, than I feel now.

I've heard a lot of people who are 50 - 60 say that they really didn't feel that way at all. It's interesting.
