Getting Older

I don't like to think of myself as an old person yet. Sure I am 32 and on my way to 33. But am I really that old. So you may wonder why I am posing this question. Today, I ran into a girl I danced with in Jr. High and who I went to High School with. It took me forever to realize and remember who she was. (I still can't remember her last name.) But boy, did she look OLD! She reminded me of one of my old young women leaders back in the day. As I finished my conversation with her, it made me wonder, I am I starting to look that old? (Nobody needs to answer that question.) Hopefully not. My plan is if I keep teaching the high school aged population, at least they can make me feel young.

A question for all of you, What makes you feel old????

Prob teaching girls that are 7-8 years younger than me!
The confusing thing though is this- am I closer in age to the girls or the parents? How to balance out my maturity-level... very interesting. Now I understand maybe how you felt in high school- but you were better at being friends with the parents than I am! How were you so successful?
P.S. You don't look old, but you must feel old because I feel old! HA!!! :)

I experience this often! However, I did have a nice compliment the other night. I was at an athletic banquet with one of my students and a faculty member across the table asked "What sport do you play?" I just smiled and said, "I'm a faculty member." He was shocked and I felt young! :)

I wanna know WHO you ran into!?!?

Music makes me feel old. I was thinking about us going to the Paula and Janet concerts and that was like 20 years ago Stacey!?!? It's crazy, and it kinda sucks at the same time.

I can only remember that her first name is Tammy. I will have to look through my yearbook to get her last name.
