    kind of like dying off on me. And I keep seeing people who I used to know becoming pregnant and stuff like that. Still manages to blow my mind, the people who are getting pregnant these days. Literally did not see it coming from some people. I mean with all of today's technology...

    I feel completely irrelevant

    and like I would rather just walk away from everyone than continue to feel meaningless and useless.

    I stayed up until 1:30 in the morning having sex

    and drinking. I regret having missed out on sleep. I never imagined there would come a time when sleep would be more of a premium than sex.

    I wish I could have lived in the year 2007

    for eternity. 2007 wasn't a great year for me, but I felt content back then... Sensations and experiences were a bit more vivid where as now everything feels dull and it feels like my mind hasn't changed at all since then, while my body ages.

    Sometimes I just feel tired.

    I'm so tired. Mentally. Sometimes I feel like I just want to go home. Have you ever hand that unmistakable feeling of homesickness? But under one thought, this, this right here, this is home. Isn't it? Or, is it not? And orange skies, what is it about orange skies that feels so...

    Ok lol this might sounds weird,

    but I feel like I am old at 21. Almost everyone at college in my class is around 18/19 and I am like 21, like almost 30 and I feel a bit stupid feeling old compared to my classmates or other people around me (even when people say 21 isn't old) I don't feel 21, I feel more like...

    objectively Young

    I'm 27. And I alredy think that life's short, and I should start thinking about settling. I should live fully, and be stupid, do stupid things, not wonder too much about tomorrow, not behave. I don't know. I estimated myself to be 50 in my head. Sometimes when i start thinking, I...

    Gosh I turned 50 in March.

    For the first time ever I feel old, but my mind is still 20, but more mature and experienced obviously. I've never lost my spontenaity though, just constrained by my carer position looking after my wife.

    I get these periods in my life where I feel old. No, they do not always occur around my birthday either. Occasionally they do, but they can happen anytime that I think about my age and how little that I've done with my life so far. I think this happens because I have too much...

    Old Age And Death

    I've been through most of the stories of this group.  The thing that shocks me is that most of the members here aren't old.  They're young, they're middle-aged, but they're not old.  "Old" means to me that whatever else you're doing, you have to take death into...

    My Opinion Makes Me Feel Old

    Something that makes me feel old because it bothers me: 14 year olds dressing like 20 year olds. Cut off jeans, cut to the hip almost. Shirts that end almost where they start. They are everywhere. Am I just getting older? I just drove out of town and back, and there must have...
