So… this is late… But a little more than a month ago I had my birthday! So… officially I am a year older. Yay?
So… getting older… It’s a weird thing. I think it mainly appears on perspective. For some people it’s this terrible thing, for others it’s part of life, and for other people (like Adeline. If you don’t know Age Of Adeline YOU MUST SEE IT! IT’S AMAZING!) it’s beautiful and natural.
It’s not like I gained more knowledge as I became older or anything, but…. I think it’s a part of life. Unless someone magically (or scientifically) finds a way to slow down aging… I would probably take it. And no. It’s not that I want to remain young and pretty (I honestly don’t think myself “pretty”) it would be so I don’t miss the whole “flying cars” thing and the rest that the future holds.
Think about it… how awesome would it be to have been alive since like… horses and buggies to flying cars or teleportation! That would be EPIC!
But back to the original topic… Aging. (I suppose I could make a “Let’s Talk” about this… But I’m not going to because I’m lazy! XD) It can be a sensitive topic. But everything just leads back to the same thing. The fear, or not fear, of getting old. My question is (post your answer in the comments) why are people so scared of getting old? If not, why would they be scared? What is so beautiful about aging, or staying young?
Seriously, I have NO idea…
