    I don't mind because I'm strikingly handsome, don't want to die though.

    I am noticing my joints sometimes want to get stupid on me if I try to do things like climb in a car window, but otherwise I don't mind getting older. In fact, I'm enjoying it more than I expected.

    Turned forty earlier this moth, FWIW.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    currently neutral, but every year I start to get more restless, feel like I should be doing something different or experiencing life differently but I don't.

    I see how in some ways this is a bad attitude but incrementally it seems like life gets more disappointing and less hopeful. Like looking ahead I'll have to settle on some lame job most likely, not find the significant other I want or even one at all, probably hit a mid-life crisis or something too, haha. Trying to be more positive though, but just from looking at it like I'm an apple falling from a tree...I look back up at the tree and get the impression like things could be better but probably won't be.

    I'm a late bloomer and I am still growing and glowing! I feel creative and strong and have decided that age is just a number. I'm a volunteer at a nursing home, and I have met some incredible elderly people there. They are inspirations!!!

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Well, right now I want to be two years older to drink and gamble my life away legally, because this country is retarded in thinking that 21 is a good age for that, but at 18 you're responsible enough to kill someone at war for your country.

    Other than that, no. I don't like getting older, because it seems to be more and more depressing and way more boring.

    Yeah I relate to your post, Tallulah. I feel like a late bloomer in many ways too.

    I'm finally beginning to feel confident in my ‘form’, who I am, and to feel like I can understand things and impact my life and surroundings. I didn’t really ever have a sense of who I was or what I wanted or how things fit together really, but it has crept in quietly in recent years. I love it, and feel pretty satisfied and calmly expectant for what the future - each day even - will bring. Obviously there are ups and downs, but I guess that’s how I feel overall right now, at least.

    It probably sounds cheesy, but I love growing as a person, and that takes time.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Don't mind it.

    I'm 32 and besides some my hair and 6pack disappearing, I'm okay.

    If I had to hit the stop button, I'd do it at 26-28.

    Just kidding, it sucks because the years seem to go so much faster. Childhood in hindsight seemed like a lifetime, but the last 10 years seems like 1 year. Hopefully I end up like my Grandfather who has a sense of humor about being old, he cracks jokes all the time about how he could die at any moment or how everyday is a good day because he woke up in the morning.

    I really enjoy talking to elderly people as well, it's too bad they are sort of cast aside and confined to interact with only other seniors, I hear their suicide rates are high.
