    when I walk into a pub or club full of people and I am one of the oldest people in the room.

    When someone describes a movie or video game or song as "old school" when it was released in the last 10 years or so. :older_man:

    What things make you feel old?

    When I realized my boyfriend is considered part of a different generation than me... even though I'm only a year and a half older.

    Sometimes when my husband and I celebrate anniversaries. It's hard to believe we have lived together longer than I lived with my parents...

    1. When longtime friends who are younger than me are either going off to college or graduating college.

    In general, I'm and old soul, so there are many things make me feel old (I could make a whole list...). But at the same time, I'm also a kid at heart, so it's an interesting balance.

    Yeah. I wasn't. I was born four years before. So technically I was born in the pre 9/11 era. Weird.

    What a mind fuck. And so cute.

    We were talking the other day that its wild that one day we will be knowing each other for longer than we haven't known each other. Confusing to type so not sure if that makes sense haha

    The other day my little cousin who is 10 years old made me realize that she doesn't know a world were my husband hasn't been part of the family. To her he has always been there and she treats him almost as just another cousin. Its the cutest thing, but made me feel old as hell haha

    The funniest thing for me is the moments when I feel old in the good way. It seems so strange to me that at 47 I still have those moments where I'm impressed that I'm actually a "grown up".

    When I found out just how long ago the first season of Pokemon was and its the one I remember from when I was kid. When I remeber I got my first CD player at age 8 when they were the newest thing. When I realize that my 15 yr old cousin doesn't know a time without wifi and I can still remember the dial up tone for the Internet. When I realize I was in my final year of school ( for the first time) 10 years ago and I still haven't finished college and probably never will.

    When I realize that my pupils don't know anything about 9/11, Iraq, Bush... because they were born after it. For them, it's just History that lived their parents or elder brothers and sisters.

    Or when I realize that it's been 10 years since the release of The Dark Knight, and my first relationship. Men, I feel like that was yesterday!!
