Is it like this for everyone?
Here is an actual conversation I had with my partner in Spanish class last night (we had the conversation in English-we're not that advanced. Side note: he was born in 1988.
Me: So, you go to school here?
Him: No, I go to Salisbury in Maryland.
Him: You're like way out of college right?
Me: (chuckling) Yeah, I think I finished college like 5 years ago. Then I got my teaching license.
Him: Yeah, I'm taking like 24 credits this summer.
Me: Wow, I think the most I ever took at once was 19 and that was tough!
Him: Well, nowadays people take like 30 credits a year.
Me: (thinking to myself) Nowadays-how old am I?
Okay, so in case you don't see what I saw in this conversation-he thinks I'm old. He can tell I finished college a long time ago, that I have a few wrinkles around my eyes, and that I'm still carrying some weight from that baby I always talk about. What I really want to say to this guy is: "Wait until you're 29 and life is flying by and you still feel 19, but you're not. Wait until you take some little class to help fill your already full day and some young chick asks you in a knowing way 'you're way out of college right?' I thought the whole thing was hilarious and I wrote it down secretly word for word so that I could blog it. That's how obsessed I am with blogging. I'm also obsessed with what any of you who read this have to say. My comments are not rolling in like they once were and I'm sad :( So, if you read, could you just say one little thing? Something you liked or didn't-anything.
Baby's up from her nap-gotta feed her...
PS- The picture is me, blogging this morning (can you say "tired")
