Happy Monday, right??
Yeesh. Every weekend I feel older and older. I’m kidding, but you know what I mean right? A while ago I wrote about feeling older and you can check it out here. After that post, I have been feeling older a hell of a lot more lately, and I realized there were some new things that make me feel older! All the new aches and pains, the laziness, the increasing amount of life talks. UGH. Gimme a break people! I’m only 26! The world is still my oyster and I can still live day to day not giving a shit about the long term. Right?
1. Early bedtime
I don’t even get to see 10:00 pm anymore. I am passing outttt. Then the weekend comes along and it’s like holy shit…midnight?!?! I can barely keep my eyes open! I think my parents stay up later than that on the weekend. Yeesh woman.
2. Too much work to go out to the club/bars
It really is. Where to go? What to wear? How to get there/get home? Too many questions. No answers. Okay, let’s all just have a nice relaxing night in. Every weekend. Every night. For the rest of ever. Oops. I’m a homebody now. Great.
3. Too many acronyms that I have to google
Yeah, what is with that! I mean all of a sudden, HAM became a big thing. HBD, ILY, TY, SMH. Seriously people?? If you can’t write out “I love you” or “Thank you” then you probably don’t mean it so just stop. Just STAWP. (Just to clarify – that is not an acronym, that is me emphasizing the stop). Or just STFU 😉
4. Board Games and Disney Movies are perfectly acceptable Saturday night activities
This did happen. Dogopoly and Beauty and the Beast. On a Saturday night. It was fantastic. Of course there was champagne involved, but still, goes back to not having that desire to go out or do anything remotely exciting.
5. The body seems to hurt a lot longer now
It seems like the recovery time for sore muscles is twice as long now. I went on a 10 mile hike, which equalled a 5 day recovery period. I couldn’t bend my legs, sit, or do anything. And my hips, like a seriously old lady, my hips, were killing me! I use to frolick outside all the time without missing a beat the next day! Not anymore kiddo.
What else am I missing? I’m sure things will just keep coming too! What makes you guys feel older??
