    You were not a kid anymore/getting older...?

    I guess I noticed that I don't heal up from sports injuries (or any inuries really) as fast as I used to.

    I am also starting to lose some hair on my head. :rolleyes:

    Then there is the 5 pounds a year that slowly grows on and stays....

    You?

    I need more light to read by. Sometimes reading glasses help, but I'm so blind already it's hard to tell.

    I'm only horny a couple of times a week instead of every 12 hours like I used to.

    I noticed when I stopped finding kiddie cartoons and Nickelodeon engaging.

    I also noticed when things started cracking, aching, and generally felt less lubricated.

    I actually have to use multiple moisturizers daily to reduce the appearance of wrinkles forming around the eyes and forehead.

    My hearings not as sharp and I actually have started thinking that music can be too loud. I get annoyed when I can hear other people's music playing/thudding in their cars.

    And the weight doesn't come off as easily as before.

    And late nights or all-nighters just do me in....

    Oooh, I forgot that.

    I stand up from a chair and I sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies. Marathoning is bad...mmkay?

    I also cannot do those 3 in the morning benders, either. I'm done at 11 most nights.

    Yeah, that's how I noticed you were getting older too... :D


    I've been in strategic denial of forehead-meeting-crown syndrome for a number of years now. The beard turning white was another clue. (actually, emulating The Steve Look fairly closely here... but I don't keep my beard as closely cropped as he does. More the grizzly Adams look until my wife forces me to trim it...)

    Having to perch my glasses on the very end of my nose in order to read is a pain. But bifocals are an admission of defeat, somehow...

    I always thought the defining symbol of aging was starting to get hangovers after a night on the sauce. ;) :D

    When there was a free concert in town for a bunch of semi-popular and indie rock groups, and I thought to myself, "You know, tonight, I'd much rather go see a symphony."

    I'm hovering at 21, so I am not as wise as some of the rest of you. Ha; I called some of you "wise". ;)

    At 28 I'm starting to feel it. My right knee sounds like rice krispies, yet I never ran a marathon. And when the day came that I look like the Crypt Keeper™ without pounds of makeup, I figured I was starting the aging process.
    Ok, now I need a Vicoden™.
    :p

    Wait till you're looking at 40. :eek:

    36 feels ancient to me. :(

    Edit: Post 7,000. Yikes I gotta get to work.

    I can only imagine...

    Aren't you glad that your 7000th post referred to your age and how old you feel? :p ;)

    Yes, and now that I think of it, since I am the MacRumors picture police, you haven't posted an image yet. :mad: :D

    I see the policing skills are getting a bit rusty, but I suppose that's expected of someone your age. :p

    • I started getting hangovers, that get worse and worse as time goes on. :( That's probably the worst bit. :p
    • My joints actually crack less than when I was a teenager for some reason, but my joints are definitely more rubbish than they were. For instance, I'm sitting cross legged on the sofa with my iBook on my lap, and my knees really hurt. Too lazy to move though. :p
    • I can't stay up all night anymore and still function the next day.
    • I have suddenly freakishly put on weight, and it is because I eat too many pies and drink too much, but that never used to be a problem.

    Ugh.
