I’m 35 years old and I must admit that I sometimes forget how much older I am than the crowd I’m hanging out with. That doesn’t make me feel old though. A friend once told me that “You’re only as old as the 23 year old you’re chatting up” – that’s one of the motto’s that I’m living by.
I always freak out people when I tell them that I was in Grade 1 in 1984 and that I wrote matric in 1995. Most people I know nowadays only started school in 1994. That doesn’t make me feel old, it actually makes me feel like some kind of a legend. Someone else pointed out last year that Justin Bieber is younger than Jurassic Park. That dipshit made me feel old. I can’t believe that film came out 20 years ago (in 1993).
I was browsing around 9gag today and I came across this Meme featuring Sponge Bob, Pokemon, Space Jam, Arthur, A Goofy Movie, Dexter’s Laboratory, The Lion King, Power Rangers and Home Alone. I’m pretty sure that this will make most of reading this feel old.
I have to admit that this had more of a nostalgic effect on me. It didn’t make feel that old. It just reminded me that time goes faster than you think. Something Ferris Bueller said in that 1986 movie comes to mind “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while you could miss it”.
