signs of aging....

My dad showed up on my doorstep yesterday and took me out for dinner...during our conversation, I asked him when exactly he got married...his reply was "when i was 24, almost 25".

Now I feel all weird, as I'm a month away from 25 and a long way from feeling like I'm ready to be hitched.

Guess I'm just competitive.

Realising that 70% of the next 40 years will be spent doing work for someone else so they can make more money than you.

But getting married early was the style back in the day (just like weraing an onion on your belt!).

More education is required now to get a good job, both parents are often working, and people are generally waiting a bit longer to get married and start a family.

No need to compete. It's just changing times.

my sign of growing up came this week-end when I actually felt like I had to take care of my mom, and not the other way around.

it felt so backwards.

and when my dad actually spoke to me as a friend and not in his fatherly way.

You're as old as you feel you are.

I'm still 16 at heart... but I know my responsibilities!

At 27 I feel the same way sometimes. The other my dad told me that my older sister was born when he was 27 at which time my brother would have been 3. Yet I still spend my time dancing away in night clubs.

25 is a strange age. Some of your friends are starting to get married or at least involved in serious relationship. Some will even have babies or plan to soon. While some of your younger friends are still partying all the time. At 25 I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where I fit in and I should be doing. Now I just enjoy life as it comes.

in your parents day and age, getting married at such a young age was probably a necessity.

but now, younger people are making more money than they were 30 years ago, and so you don't necessarily have to get married to achieve financial stability. You also don't have to get married just to move out and afford a house, lots of youngsters can do that on my own.
My parents grew up in Belfast and didn't have a lot of money. My dad was 21 and still sharing a 1 bedroom 'flat' with his parents. He met my mom and they put their money together to move to canada and get their own life.
This isn't the case with our generation. I still live at home, but I could move out any day and be able to afford a car, and live on my own.

just something to think about.

My first sign of aging was when my sister got married ... then it came again when she got pregnant ... and it's poped up again everytime I realize I only have 3 months on university left ... but I like being able to fight these signs off ...
I usually includes a bearsuit and dancing to the Spice Girls or Venga Boys in my room

When you realize that joints that never made cracking noises before are making them now (my ankles for instance)


The moment you realize that the current education system is not the same as when you went through it.


When your doctor remembers you having "this same problem" and you don't.


When family members you remember being born start getting married.


When you look at a firends baby sister/brother and realize that your at a a club thats +19.


When you relaize that you can't remember the address of where you were born or the phone number.


When you see Seseme Street on TV and you don't recognize the characters.


When the music that you remember listening to in high school is being played on stations that you thought were for old people.

I just don't want to be the "old guy at the club".

The way I look at it if you are having a good time why rush into things!

Don't do it @m not yet!

true enuff. 25 isn't a bad age but things are definately changing. friends are getting married and having kids, probably going to be my turn soon. also, you start thinking about buying a house and so on. you start to realize that your living expenses are going to go through the roof pretty thanks to a mortgage, buying a ring and havin kids. i still go out and party but not as much as i used to.

life is changing, but change isn't a bad thing.

peace

damn, i wish i kept that *mid 20's crisis* thingie i posted a while back.

i don't like the term *getting old*. I used to fear the age 25, but now that i'm here - it's growing on me. I guess this has something to do with roo's *perspective* thread from the other day.

But I have noticed a shift in my priorities. I was the stubborn girl who always stated, *marriage and babies aren't for me. ever.*

And now i find myself slowly eating my words. I don't plan on having either one of those things any time soon, but i'm not planning NOT to have them either.

I totally feel the same way, for a long time I was pretty sure that kids weren't important and that I just wanted to focus on my career, but now I am thinking getting married and having a family one day would be great. I see a couple of my friends getting married and I think that one day (hopefully in the next five years) that will be me as well.

I'm 24, married, and will be a father in June. Oh and I'll have completed my master's degree before my baby is due.

I'm trying to cram all of life's "milestones" into a few short years...next up is retirement before 30

lies! i started going grey at the age of 17...now, at 24 it's probably 50/50. i attribute it to having always been very mature, and posessing an old soul.

but i'm young @ heart.

I'm 26...


By 26 my dad had been kicked out of the dutch military.

By 26 I had to return my dutch passport for refusing to enter the dutch military (I'm a lover not a fighter)

By 26 my parents had both left home and moved away.

By 26 I've left home and moved away.

By 26 my parents weren't yet married they were however thinking about buying a home

By 26 I'm not married and I'm thinking about buying a home

By 26 my dad was driving a Grey VW Beetle

By 26 I drive a grey VW Cabrio

It was the early sixties, they looked like mods (I have a 10 minute film strip) they went out with friends and danced all night. They'd drink a few to many on occasion and liked to take drives along lake ontario. They took road trips to the states just to see what it was like and loved going to montreal for the night life.


My Mom was born in 1934
My Dad was born in 1933


And you know what we have more in common than I'd ever like to admit
