10 Ways I Can Tell I’m Getting Older

Hi Friends!

A couple weekends ago I attended a three day music festival called Boston Calling. It was great, but I gotta say – nothing makes you feel 30 years old like standing in a crowd full of 19 year olds mosh pitting to Run The Jewels and Major Lazer. I mean, is it too much to ask that the older people get a designated area to politely enjoy the show? Oh right, that’s called the VIP area and I was too cheap to splurge for it.

Besides mosh pits and the fact that a week later I’m still sore (from standing?) I realized there are a handful of ways I can definitely tell I’m getting older. Below is that list.



1. Googling Abbreviations Kids Use These Days.

Examples: TFW, IRL, ICYMI.

The fact of the matter is, we all get older, I honestly just never thought I would. It’s just comforting to know that the 19 year olds swigging vodka from a Poland Springs bottle and cutting me in the bathroom lines this weekend will too.

Until Next Time!
