A few months back when I noticed that squinting makes several more lines around my eyes than it used to, and that those lines actually are starting to form creases (though you'd have to look really close to see them).
Life transitions (like seeing my old friends getting married and having kids or living completely on my own) never really had the same kind of mental impact that that did.

I'm still hoping for nanotech to come along later and make me young again, but if it doesn't then it kind of sucks that my body is no longer perfectly youthful and is just going to deteriorate from now on.


Haha I'm kind of starting to feel this too. ^ When I was in High School I would jog all the time with just a bit of minor back pain (can't remember what certain incident it was when I was young but I hurt my back). Now when I jog my back aches like crazy. I also get shin splints all the time now too. I don't know if that has anything to do with getting older (the shin splits), but I definitely never had 'em in the high school days. Now I have to cut back on my running because I have shin splints ALL the time now. It's pretty discouraging since I want to stay in shape. Riding a bike for exercise just doesn't seem enticing to me.

Ah, shin splints suck; I used to have them almost nonstop back when I started running on really rough terrain. Fortunately the only skeletal issue I have now is with my right shoulder, though that's from a previous injury rather than age. It mostly makes certain lifts too dangerous to do, particularly almost anything that targets my lats.

My dog sleeps even more nowadays now that he's growing older. Didn't notice his fur though since it's already white. Reminds me that I am getting old too since we got him when he was a pup too.

He still chases his tail though and I find it absolutely adorable.

I realized it when I had to do most of everything on my own in college, then after I graduated too, and when my niece called me 'Aunt'. I still insisted on her calling me Atsi (older sister in Chinese) instead. xD

I was having a beer with a buddy of mine. His cute younger (of legal age) sister was over visiting. She didn't know who Nirvana was.

One of the saddest moments of my life.
