TOTW 418 - feeling old

09/26/2020

Is there a recent time in your life when you felt "old"?

I definitely feel old. I'm at that stage in my life where I realize my childhood was dial-up with no cell phones and that is starkly different from what kids today know. I am even talking like I'm old. And I can imagine a young me reading this entry thinking dang that guy's old, talking about the good ol' times.

Bloop is old too.

It's actually sad. I watch videos about things I enjoyed as a child, and while the nostalgia is somewhat enjoyable, after a while it feels like a sickness. It just brings this sadness over me and reminds me of friends lost and memories past. Things were much simpler as a child than they are now, not that I'd like them to be simple again, just that it was a different time.

Anyway, onward and upward. I will continue to age until I die, and then I will stop counting.

I like to keep Bloop running, and the premium subscription helps pay for server expenses and helps justify the time I spend developing it.

Hubbs and I have a couple of years until we hit our 40's. I think the mall that recently closed near us( that we both hung around when we were teens), kind of put a "dent" in our "feeling" of being old.

I used to work with kids, too, and quite often I'd feel old-- with my peers and the kids. ESPECIALLY, when we started talking about DOS and the Internet. Yes, friends, we played Nintendo. We hung out at malls. We made up games outside....

I thought I was the only one who thought about childhood and how things seemed so much more innocent and easy and happy...and then I feel sad afterwards
