    How Old Is Too Young?

    When I got to 45 I simply stated that Iwas half way to 90 and left it at that. Since then, helped no doubt by the fact that my wife gets words and thoughts tangled, I have started substituting one word for another just because it sounds similar - but means something...

    Ready To Settle Down...

    At this age, 19, a college student should reflect on their attributions to society and how to maintain a proper balance between adulthood and education. We are to live wildly, party like it's 1999, drink until our livers are screeching with aching pain, but not me. I did my 18...

    I'm 45...do I FEEL 45?

    No. It's still crazy to me that I'm this age. I get along with people of all ages basically...but more so with people that are younger than me...sometimes a lot younger. I have friends who are in their early 20's. Of course, when I hang out with them I FEEL old...but most...

    I never got to have the normal experiences of

    youth that most have (because my mom raised me very religiously and expected me to do too much for her) so I don't want to be a "grown-up". At the same time, I have health issues that make me feel older physically than I do in my head.

    I think I am going through a pre mid life

    crises! At the age of 28 I feel like I have missed out on not having more blinding nights out raving until sunrise. I could have carved a different career for myself even though I like the one I have. I would have liked to have had more mindless amazing sex. I want to still be...

    Fact. I am officially MIDDLE AGED :( This means

    I'll never get to play proffessional football. Never get to compete at the Olympics. But not old enough to enjoy concessions anywhere. Not old enough to see a nice reduction in my bills. I think it's the middle aged who perhaps get the worst deal! We work harder now than our...

    Right In the Middle

    I still like new music, not going for the elevator stuff yet.  Still get out and stay active, haven't become lazy yet.  Still can remember what it was like to be a kid.  But I don't need to drive a fast car, or spend money like it's water, get drunk every weekend...
