What Makes Me Feel Older

If you have read my last post, you will know that I recently became a year older (just like you).
I remember telling my friends once that I felt older when I realized that I preferred shopping for groceries to clothes. I thought that it would be fun to expand that list..

What Makes Me Feel Older

I now prefer shopping for groceries to clothes.

Just yesterday, some of my students at Casas Ibáñez received worksheets for technology class. On it were the words “cassette player” along with a picture. One student asked, “Oh.. cassette tapes are those things that they used to use to listen to music, right?” I couldn’t stop laughing. *I remember my first Walkman when I was nine, and how I used to argue that the plural form is Walkmans, not Walkmen!

I now understand how some broke people can spend all of their money on alcohol. Wait! I never said that I condone it.

When you feel gross, hungry, and sleepy at the same time you should do the following things in this order: sleep, take a shower, then eat. This is an example of little things I learned along the way.

When I read Invisible Man in high school, I remember that I did not understand the part where someone says, “Son, if you don’t become bitter, nothing can stop you from success. Remember that.” I even remember feeling a bit uncomfortable because I didn’t understand what he meant despite the simplicity of the language. I now take these words to heart.
