... thinking you're secretly immortal ....

...standing at Death's door... 

...  they will be coming to an end much sooner than you originally thought....

... they really won't be living forever. As in: really... won't...be.

...humbled by the realization that nothing is going to last forever. Not even them. ...


 :huh:     :-\   :o   :(

So... what are you sayin'???

Jim

I've had a hard time keeping track of my age since I was 19.
Don't worry, it'll all come back to you when you turn 20...

So... I waited another year ... When they decided to repeat the same friggin stunt, again...and raised the drinking age to 21. Needless to say, I was pissed.
So, you really hadn't waited at all  ;D

I'm not that old (or so I keep insisting) and I've long since lost the love of turning another year older. I don't usually completely space my birthday but perhaps that's because, like your friend, someone will remind me. I'll tell you though, I've had a hard time keeping track of my age since I was 19.
That might be a symptom of thinking you're secretly immortal - or at least not truly believeing you aren't.

I'm not sure that's an accurate diagnosis of my situation. I was very aware of my mortality at 19. Just ask the doctors who treated me for suicidality/depression. It was not a good year for me and my memory hasn't been the same since.

Re the drinking underage,
there was a tradition where I lived, or was it where I drank :-\ - anyways, there was a tradition to go on the piss the night before your 18th birthday (legal drinking age). They were very lax about enforcement...

Funny...I have a tendency to try to follow them - until I snap.  ;D

Amazing the number of people in the technical & coding professions (or who are computer enthusiasts) who suffer from clinical levels of depression.

I wonder why that is.  :huh:
