When did you reach the realization you were getting old/older?
What event brought on said realization?

I realized I was getting old a week before my 18th birthday
When I recieved my Selective Service Regs papers, telling me to sign up
even though I was turning 18 and by law, an adult, it didn't really hit until I got those papers, that my childhood was officially over

Too vague...
No sudden realization I suppose...gradual...

I recall a quote, but I dunno if I have it right, if anyone knows tell me. Goes something like this: "one measures age not by years but how much time one has left."

^ just no. Look up the common definiation of the word pedophile. Children only.

^ I know that but doesn't help when people think all minors are children and everyone is jailbait.

^and^^I think we already have a paedophile thread.

I didn't start to feel really old until I reached my mid 40s. There was a brief phase when I was 28 and realised a lot friends were only 21 that I felt a bit old by comparison, but I got over it quickly.

I realized I was gettin old by the age of 14 when all my childhood feelings started to wash away slowly until I was 15 & I forgot how good I had it back then.Sometimes I wander around my childhood memories & the nostalgic things that happened back then.

When I graduated high school. That affected me in such a huge way and was definitely a turning point in my life, as I'm sure was the case for many, many others.

However, it still hasn't really sunk in that I'm an adult. ^^; Lol, I'll still ask my parents if I can go places, etc. For example, a friend & I just planned a trip to Chicago and it just felt so strange to decide I'm going without asking my parents first.

Also, having to go to the bank makes me feel grown-up. lmao. I don't know, it just seems like such an adult thing to do.
