Jeans Seven for all Mankind
oh hai. Wonder why I keep kinda falling off the planet for a few days at a time? Dude I feel so OUT OF THE GAME. I am not a early 20something that fits in a size 4 and freshly out of school and going out on the town, I don't make fancy beautiful food, have huge groups of friends I hang out with and look photogenic. I am not INTERESTING.
I have grey hairs.
I wore neon, stone wash, combat boots and arm parties the first time around.
I haven't fit in a size 4 since the 90s.
Dinner out for me involves fried food in a cardboard boat.
I think Evan Dando is hot.
I saw 16 Candles at the drive in.
I'm older than the teacher on Glee. (just a smidge)
I've been feeling out of it for awhile but the other day I saw a girl in a Blonde Ambition tour shirt. I thought OMG I HAD THAT SHIRT. Then I realized that she wasn't even born when that tour happened. It kinda took the wind out of my sails. Wah wah I know. Dude some days it is really hard working on a college campus. Seriously. The new kids born when I was in high school. What?
I started my blog for my mother. Seriously. It was to show her things. Then people started reading, then some more, then a few more. 9 years later I feel like I just don't have anything anyone would care to read anymore. Why would they? I wear the same shit all the time. I like the same music, style, foods and things for the past decade. I am not big into NEW THINGS, new trends, new music. I just am so out of touch I feel like I should go sit in my corner and hush up.
Pity party of one much? Does this have anything to do with my birthday being a week away. Damn straight. When did I get so old? Seriously? I didn't see it happening. I didn't know. Honestly. I only started to really feel it this past year as I find myself constantly rolling my eyes as I read other blogs. I think OH YOUR YOUNG. I am not that person that thinks things like that. Or I wasn't. I continually embarrass myself on my teenage cousin's Facebook page. I am that old person. I don't want to be. I want to be young and hip in that NOT TRYING sort of way.
OH cheesus don't mind me. I'm only turning 23. For the 11th time. (33)
I'm not looking for you to validate me. I just wanted to let you know where my mind was at. Age is just a number. I know. I do. Sometimes that number blows.
