Being 26 is awful
« on: April 21, 2014, 12:36:38 AM »
I'm just going to start lying and telling everybody I'm 24 until I'm 40.  All the preservatives in the food I eat keep me looking young, and my general uselessness and dependency upon others makes it convincing.

It's not so awful when you finally get a hold of where your life's going.

They should make a youth serum out of preservatives.

27 is the age where your body starts going "fuck it, I'm dying now."

26 is a strange time where you're on the bleeding edge of not being a kid anymore and starting to be an adult.

It's fuckin scary man.

I plan to make a come from behind victory on life underdog style at the last second and go out in a tragic blaze of glory

Jk I'm gonna wander into the woods and die of exposure after writing a pretty boring suicide note and leave a pathetic lumpy corpse that I hope gets eaten by something cute like a bear

I'm 25 in a couple of months and I already feel like I'm frigging 40. Ugh.

Try being 30 in a week from now. I'm starting to notice how fast the days go and that tomorrow I'll be 90 and dead,

When you're 90 years old, you're going to look back on 26 as being part of your youth. Don't fret, You're not even 30 yet.

I'm not happy about my age either. Just turned 29. Blech.

But I got a shiny new PS3, along with Uncharted 2 & 3.  ;D

I can reliably inform you all on the day after you turn 30 you turn 90 and stay that way for all of the times forever.

Meh, it's a number.  When I was really young, I used to think there was an ideal age when things were "supposed to be a certain way," but after hitting different milestones, and having been flipped around by so many turnabouts in life, I learned to just say, "Screw it.  Whatever is, is."

Besides, I've come to know 50-year-olds that enjoy life like 20-somethings and 20-somethings who are crotchety old yentas.  Just take care of your skin, become BFFs with your stylist, and make like you age better than a vampire.  For all the time spent growing up and learning enough about the world to break free of control, it's a challenge to feel young, but a waste to feel old.

30 on Thursday. I am friends with people with babies and people who have been through divorce. And they're all younger than me except for like 1 guy I know who looks like the youngest guy I know. And I still haven't gotten a driver's license. On the upside, at least I'm pretty great.

Heh.  Well, of course, people can tweak their needs accordingly, Smindy.  If everyone had my take on vanity, the world would be a silly place.  Imagine a world where the dominant style is anime-tinged glam rock with a strong base of late-80s/early-90s David Bowie and an Oscar Wilde twist.  Too much fabulous bizarrity would become worthless and boring.

Though, unless one is King DIY or has the skill to rock something natural/messy, I stand by the value of a hair stylist.  He/she is always a good friend, a confidante, a cheerleader when in a sour mood, and they know how to craft the right aesthetic.  Looking good is a way to feel good and shake off the sour stigma of age.

Suicidal thoughts are like Congressmen: old, ugly, selfish, and intending to control people to fellate self-inflated delusions of lordly grandeur.
