Signs of Getting Old

As a young man, it’s hard to imagine myself getting old and losing energy. I find that I get depressed and lose motivation, but that’s not exactly the same as getting old. I still have the energy; I just can’t find a reason to use it. I don’t complain about things being a lot of work; I just complain about the annoying fucker giving me the work. For the most part, I’m still much closer to a young man than an old man with no signs of metamorphosis. I did find one thing that makes me an old man and that’s…

Candy. As I child, I remember thinking that it’s absurd how adults don’t love candy as much as kids. I still love sweets in theory, but it might be linked to my overall disinterest in life that makes me not care for candy. For many years now, I’ve found that things that look like they might be tasty turns out to taste pretty bland. I don’t even enjoy expensive foods very much. Sure, they taste good I guess, but it doesn’t really make me feel any better about life and living so it feels kinda pointless. Maybe this just has to do with me getting depressed and nothing with getting old, but feeling shitty about things certainly doesn’t feel youthful.

  1. Ya I don’t get that good feeling I used to get when I go out and get an overpriced meal. I realized it was mostly a way to try and make myself feel special but it’s not like it really does anything for you. It’s not like it’s something to brag about or provides residual income. All it really is, is shit in it’s early stages. Have you heard the term, ‘youth is wasted on the young’? I don’t know, I always thought it was so true.

    • “Food is shit in its early stages.” Lol. Expensive food do taste noticeably better so I guess if money becomes immaterial, it makes sense to go with the fancier foods. I might not though. Fancier foods are more troublesome to get so I might still eat frozen pizzas just to avoid interacting with people.

      I find that I naturally want to disagree to things to feel different or special. Looking at the youth is wasted on the young statement, I immediately try to disagree with it but I don’t know if it’s worth the brain juices to think it through cause it doesn’t really matter even if I do make a solid point against it, lol. I think it’s more wasteful that responsible parents don’t let kids do all the shit they want to do, causing a lot of energy and intent to go to waste. Intent/motivation is a very scarce resource in my life right now, lol.

  2. Haha, I always used to get really jealous that my Mum could stay up late and eat all the chocolate she wants but I had to do as I was told, now I’m nearly 18 home alone most nights because she’s at work, eating loads of chocolate and stay up late revising… It’s really not all it’s cracked up to be.

    • Whenever I eat a box of chocolates, part way through, it ceases to be enjoyable and I finish it just for the sake of finishing the box so I can throw it out. When I finish, I wonder why the fuck I put myself through that. Not only do I feel thoroughly shitty for eating so much, I get fat from it too cause I don’t exercise too much these days. It’s bad on bad.

      I was raised not to waste food but over time I start to think that wasting food is a good thing if it means less harm to the body. Blatantly wasting food is bad, but there’s nothing wrong with not finishing food and throwing it out (or saving it) instead of trying to finish it all. …I say that, but I have yet to put it in practice.

  3. I totally agree with your article, however do I feel that expensive foods should be considered special and a way of life, like a lifestyle. Maybe try enjoying the foods as a specialty. Try it while you’re young!

    • It would be hard to make it a way of life without having a fortunate… fortune. Even if one were to work hard to earn lots of money, I imagine it’d be tough to enjoy things too much if one’s busy working really hard to earn that money.

      I’ve never had anything crazy expensive but I have tried pretty pricey things here and there. Maybe I oughta try something super expensive one day. Maybe…
