How Do You Feel About Getting Older?

santa cruz wharf
I always forget that I'm turning 30 this year because most of the time I still feel like I'm 22. I also tend to think everyone around me is my age, but mounting evidence is beginning to prove otherwise...
  • My newfound friend at karaoke told me not to feel bad I didn't know what song was playing because it was "probably from the early 80s, before we were born."
  • I just learned about the Harlem Shake two weeks ago. My sister informed me I'm the last person on earth to find out about it. 
  • When I meet recent grads from UCLA and ask which dorm they lived in, they say things like, "I don't think it was built yet when you were there." 

I'm officially turning into a dinosaur, ha! I love getting older.

How do you feel about it? Does getting older freak you out? I'm glad I'm not there yet.

I will be 29 this year and feel like I'm still right out of college. But then I am reminded that I am not, when I am chatting with younger co-workers who use abbreviations that I have no clue about and I have to respond with ? Then I remember that I did not grow up with text messaging and instant messenger like they did! Ha ha.
I kind of like the wisdom though that comes with life experiences. It's definitely a challenge with all of the responsibilities that come with age, but it's also exciting.
