    I feel it's really weird when everyone is getting older around you, except you. I mean I am getting older too. But... idk. I guess this is the black curse.

    Btw I'm drunk. Sup UM.

    Just got home from work. At a stoplight the guy sitting next to me was playing Malmsteen's Crystal Ball, although I didn't recognize it until I Googled the lyrics. Pasty guy with glasses and ponytail, reminded me of Dodens a bit.

    He's on disability so he sits around trying to be edgy on forums while getting a check from the government. My tax dollars at work.

    it's fucking great. getting older is clearly the worst thing that can possibly happen to a person. every time someone whines to me about their Adult Problems i'm like hey it's really awesome that i think and care less about this kinda shit than i do about which is the sixth best metal album of 1988.

    Getting older is definitely the worst. I'm 30 in a few months, and I can feel a full blown existential crisis coming along! I keep thinking about it. I've built this day up for years and concluded it's pretty much going to be the end of my life as I know it. 30 is old as fuck and those people that say 40 is the best time of their life can fuck right off. Nothing good comes with age. You get terrible hangovers, you can't play sports the same as you used to, and you generally become a pretty boring person. 30 is the time you begin longing for the cold grip of death to the end your miserable, pointless existence.

    I'd give anything to be 16 again and starting my A Levels at college again.

    the trick is to make your life stagnate as much as possible so there's no difference between being 16 and 30. my life isn't exactly super different and i've always had terrible hangovers, i'm as fit as i ever was and i'm a lot more chilled out and free of anxiety/insecurity so i can't say i'd rather be 16 again. i would definitely rather be 8 or 10 again though, childhood is peak existence unless you're one of the unlucky ones that gets abused or something.

    You're probably over 30 and lamenting the death of your previous self.

    I'm well aware this is all ridiculous btw, and that I probably won't feel any different until post 40 really. But as I said, I've built this day up for so long in my head, since at least my early teens that as it draws nearer it's beginning to consume me.

    I don't know about that. I mean it was all care free, and you had more legitimate experiences of wonder, but at that age you're usually pretty selfish and ignorant and don't really know anything about anything. I don't think I'd want to be like that again.

    I'm not. As per usual you spout nothing but conjecture.

    30s are the best years of life imo. You're a young adult but you're no longer fucking stupid (hopefully). You have an income and you're still healthy, you can do what you want.

    That's what I'm hoping for. I don't have any great material or social ambitions, all I really want out of life right now is to be done with school, have a moderate source of income, and my own house, so that I can do pretty much whatever I want beyond the judgment of normies within it. I've wanted to become a hermit since approximately the age of 10 and it's taking for fucking ever to reach that stage. Hoping my libido eventually withers away as well.

    once you're an adult everything's filtered through cynicism and self-awareness and familiarity, when you're a kid you get fucking excited every day about something trivial to the point of not being able to sleep or sit still. so much easier to get immersed in stuff, it ruled. plus, ignorance is bliss is one of the oldest and truest clichés in the book. as a kid i was never 'stupid' exactly but i was largely oblivious to the wider world and its workings and it was fantastic.

    Lol, Phylactery kind of sounded like a more "sophisticated" version of DeathDelirium/CF87 right there.

    The sick joke of life is that when we are young we are too stupid and full of anxiety to really appreciate being young and when we get older and smarter and chill the fuck out, our bodies start shutting down in various ways. God is a cunt.

    My body is already shutting down. My memory is rapidly fading, I have random chest pains, and I now have to wipe my ass several times a day even long after taking a dump because shit tends to just slowly leak out now. I'll probably be bed-ridden and incontinent by 40, assuming I don't die of a heart attack before then which one of my great-grandfathers did (though most others lasted to 60-70 before their first heart problems).
