I’m realizing that life in my very late 20’s (recently single) is so much like my life in my mid teens. I work from 8-3-ish in social media, almost the same hours of a school day (every once and a while I have a big take home project). After school/work I go to they gym instead of Football practice, and then I have dinner and watch TV. Seriously the only things that have changed are that I can drink and now have nice bedroom furniture.
When do we grow up? I know, when you have children your priorities change drastically but I don’t have children, so that’s off the table (and I know plenty of people who didn’t change after children). Living your life as a perpetual (mature for his/her age) teen seems like the thing to do.
I still play video games, chase girls, play low stakes poker games, and enjoy Bond movies. All of these things I though as a teen were juvenile and I would get over them eventually but these things are fun. I would stop chasing girls if I were a relationship (I’m not a pig). These things don’t seem all that juvenile anymore. I can sip prosecco (or Pabst Blue Ribbon) while playing poker and watching a football game.
I look at some of my friends who are still single in my age group and the only thing that’s no longer cool to do (or never really was) is to drink until you make an ass of yourself. I think that this is a phenomenon that is only accepted your first year of college some people never got the memo.
Where does this end up? How do I conclude this? I’m physically getting older but I’m not feeling any older. It’s not because of any breakthrough treatments or do-dads. This is because I’ve continued to live young. I still have my toys (they have just changed a bit: iPad, Playstation, golf clubs, etc), I still have my type of fun (playing cards, having a drink or two) and I still have my youth.
How do you keep yours?
