TLDR Summary: As I get older, I can no longer perform mental tasks in the same way as I used to and I do not feel any wiser.

Wisdom comes with age is how the old adage goes, but I have come to realize that this might not be true as a whole.
As I close in on my 26th anum of existence here on this turbulent organic sphere, I find that I am no longer as intelligent as I used to be. There are many facets to this and I can not do them all justice here. One of particular interest is the fact that I no longer possess the capability to compose coherent arguments like I used to back in college. Sure, many of you can argue the fact that I no longer have to perform this task on a regular basis has contributed to this rather apparent decline in cognitive faculties; yet I would counter argue, that we as a society judge intelligence based on the ability to perform in regards to certain mental accumens, and writing is one of them. Thus, the lack of practice, should not be heralded as an excuse, rather a direct sign of decline due to lack of interest. What do I mean by all of this? I guess, my greatest wish is to convey the fact that as I grow older, I do not feel much wiser, but I do feel like I have lost intelligence. Do any of you feel the same?
