Which is a convention I've been going to every year for the past four years and at some point. I thought to myself hmm
I'm turning 27 this year, ooh
And then I just suddenly
felt old. I looked around in the vicinity and just saw an ocean of youth, and for a few minutes
I kind of felt out of place
Wait, wait hold up. I Know what you're thinking~
(Spits a bunch of times)
Twenty-seven? That's not old at all. Do you know how old I am?
I'm [insert a number greater than 27.] Yeah, okay, fair. That's true.
You may be the age of that number which happens to be greater than my number.
But I'm pretty sure there's someone else older than you
And there's probably someone else older than them. In fact at any given time, did you know this? There can only be ONE
oldest person in the world.
(Provided everyone knows the time of their birth down to the millisecond.)
Does that mean there can only be one person in the world who has the right to feel old?
No, of course not. It's all relative. Again, I am turning 27 this year.
I am around the age my parents were when they had my older sister
And here I am not even married yet. In fact, neither are my sisters
And I'm pretty sure my parents would like to have some grandkids at some point in this lifetime.
These are the kind of pressures that get to me. Every now
And then I go through my Facebook and catch a glimpse of
my feed and it's like "so and so just got married
[oh] [so-and-so], just had their second kid oh"
And here I am, thinking I'm still a kid. Well, at heart anyway
And I'm pretty sure I'll be this way for the rest of my life. My body may start feeling old
I'm already feeling it right now with my declining metabolism, am I right?
But I will do what it takes to keep my mind
youthful. I don't want to become one of those old grumpy dudes who just sit on the rocking chair on the front porch critiquing
everything in their field of vision.
I want to be seventy years old and still be able to make puns that my
Grand kids develop a grudging tolerance for. It makes me wonder if I'm just slow with these life events
Of course I know I shouldn't compare the pace of my life with others because everyone travels at their own speed
But it still makes me worry sometimes about when will things
Actually feel late.
You know it's fun to witness? When high school kids
Think they feel old. They go through freshman year ready to discover themselves and develop their teenage
identities. The moment they hit the 10th grade they begin spiting the new freshman just for being younger than them.
"Oh my god, Betty, did you see the freshmen this year? Like, ew."
"Oh my god, right? Like, ugh, freshmen, like, we weren't totally them six months ago."
"You want to, like, go to, like, star, like, bucks or something?"
...Like?" And this just continues every year until senior year where their pompous elitist looking-ass selves
are just looking down on every underclassmen like they've somehow earned this authority over a kingdom.
But then, a reset happens. They graduate and head to college. (Most of them anyway.)
And they become first-years again who are then being looked down on by the upper years! It's an infinite cycle in both directions!
Let me give you guys a tip. Stop
automatically thinking that older means smarter or wiser and thus making younger mean dumber and more naïve.
I say automatically because some of the youth are actually pretty freaking stupid, you gotta admit.
It's almost painful to witness some of them make all the poor decisions in their lives.
But, that's what I mean. Some of those dumbass kids...stay dumbass kids, for the rest of their lives.
They just happen to grow older and have more freedom to be dumbasses in the adult world. Some people grow old,
But they never grow up.
But, aside from those people, when you think about it, in the long run the following generations will always be smarter than the previous.
Or, they should be anyway, because they have more information available for them to learn at a younger age
Every time something new happens in the world, whether it's a historical event or a technological advancement, it's collected into the cumulative knowledge
That's been existing and will continue to exist from now and forever. The only reason
This is true is because people... die. If people were immortal then we'd have our whole lives to expand our intelligence
But we're not. We live, we pass on what we know to the next generation
Then we die, and hope the people we leave behind are able to deal with the problems
We caused and weren't able to solve. The fact that the human species have made it this far is simply amazing.
So when can you feel old?
Is it anytime? Is it different per person depending on the consequences of their lives and the
environmental factors that affected their upbringing?
I think it's when you become the oldest that you yourself can ever be.
So...like, right before you die, then?
Yeah, I guess so.
Or just morbid...
