In two months, I will be 29 years old. I do not consider that to be old. However, there are certain things in this life that I either experience or feel that help me realize that I am definitely not in the “young” category.
Check out this list of things that make me feel old. Feel free to contribute and add on to the list.
THINGS THAT MAKE ME FEEL OLD…
- Drinking coffee.
- Making a mortgage payment.
- How I feel after playing back-to-back basketball games.
- Seeing confusion on the faces of students when I make a “Wonder Years” reference.
- Getting really excited when I hear a Guns-N-Roses come on.
- Saying “I remember watching the original Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves in the theater,” every time I see the trailer for the new Robin Hood movie. Then immediately thinking, “Man, Robin Hood: Men in Tights is a great movie.”

- Ever using the word “portfolio”.
- One word: INSURANCE (health, dental, vision, maternity, life, car, house, etc.)
