Got in to work early and decided to take the long way from the train to my cube in DC. I walked past the location of the old 9:30 club, where I had seen a bunch of shows in high school and college, and it's now a J.Crew store (I knew it had been razed and rebuilt but had not actually seen what happened to the old place) and it's been that way for 13 years. Now instead of feeling nostalgic, I just feel old.

:(

A few days ago, somebody asked me how old I was. 40? I'm 40. That's really the only time it hits me. When I say it.

I turn 36 this year so I'm sure I can think of some. I had a bald spot at 25 so an obvious one isn't exactly new.

I was talking about dating with my friend and she asked what is the oldest age I would date. My initial reaction was 34. Then I realized im almost 32 :\. So that number has now changed. Good lord.

When I think that 15 years ago I was in college & 20 years ago I was in high school. When I see friends from then on Facebook and how some of them are not aging well at all. Or that I'm just now getting used to friends my age having children and families of their own but now some of these kids are becoming teenagers.
I used to be really good at remembering lists, like the last 5 Oscar winning films or last 10 Super Bowl matchups. But things like that all blur together and I can't be sure what year what specific thing happened.
I'm completely out of touch with today's pop culture, especially musically. On top of that I don't care that I am.
Have to admit though, my body doesn't feel old yet.

Yeah, my body doesn't feel old yet either. But I know it will be a quick decline when it starts. I really want to knock a few more things off my running checklist before that decline starts to happen. The wife and I talked recently and she's willing to give me more training time in the next few years so I can do so.

I will be hitting this magical age in 9 months. It will be really odd to say that age out loud.

I'm in better shape than ever, but one thing that does bug me out and is slightly embarrassing is hearing my bones crack. Usually this happens at the gym.

at least when you don't have to get up at 6am for the work the next day.
Another one, not going out on Friday night because you're tired and it's been a long week.

When your big night out is going to the Home Depot to look at floors with the wife.

Man, in this town, I never go out on a Friday. Maybe I'm old, but fuck New York City on a Friday night. You can keep it.
