I Think I'm Getting Old

Sometimes I feel like a 40-year-old stuck in a 25-year-old body.

Let me give you some examples.

1. I used to be able to stay up until the wee hours of the morning. Going to bed at midnight was going to bed early for me. Now I can barely keep my eyes open until midnight!

2. When I was younger I HATED talk radio. I'd ride around with my grandpa and he'd be listening to it and I couldn't stand it. Now I find myself tuning into NPR news quite frequently.

3. I really don't enjoy going out that much. Don't get me wrong, I like to enjoy time with friends or Sean. But just to go out to go out? Nah. I'd rather stay in, watch some movies and cuddle.

4. If you could hear my Internet radio you'd realize I listen almost exclusively to music from the 60's and 70's.

5. Saturday Night Fever is my favorite movie and favorite soundtrack and has been since around the age of 12. I've watched it countless times and know every beat and word of the soundtrack. I watched it last Saturday night and realized I'm probably the only 25 year old who loves this movie so much!

I'm getting my hair done today. I think I found exactly what I want it to look like.

No, I don't expect to miraculously look like Gisele when my stylist is finished either. One can dream though?

I just hope it turns out well! If it does, I'll try to post pictures sometime in the next few days.

When I mentioned to Sean yesterday that I'd found some cute winter clothes on Forever21 yesterday he had the audacity to laugh at me and say, "well I guess you should have been buying winter clothes instead of those dresses you bought a few months ago."

Men! They don't understand clothes. Well, at least mine doesn't. I had to explain to him that I did need those dresses and now I need winter clothes. I honestly don't have that many. Especially shirts. I'm good on coats. I actually have so many coats/jackets that I need to get rid of a few. I have a few sorority hoodies that I'm keeping for no reason other than the fact they are somewhat sentimental. I never wear them and one of them is WAY too big on me. It's things like extra coats that I need to get rid of rather than trying to cram all of them into our apartment in Italy.

That's one of the main things I'm worried about when we move. We, err...I have lots of stuff. Not so much furniture, although we have a decent amount of that, but rather just stuff. Like clothes, decorations, books, etc. I don't really want to put it in storage and be without it for three years while we are overseas, but I also don't want to try to cram it all into a one bedroom apartment, which is what it shows on our orders. Trying to wrap my mind around stuffing all of our stuff in a one bedroom apartment is kind of mind boggling. Much like Scarlett O'Hara I've vowed to think about it another day. Those that are overseas already, do you have an advice regarding that?

Speaking of moving, Sean has a meeting with Transportation on Monday to get things scheduled, such as when they will be coming to pack our things, etc. I'm excited as that means not too much longer and we will be moving! Although I do have to say I'm going to miss Louisiana. I've had a good experience living here. However, I will not miss the humidity one bit!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!

I can't wait to see pictures of your hair!

Erin said...

Actually, you are one of two 25 year olds that love Saturday Night Fever! One of my all-time favorite movies!!

Megan said...

Looking forward to seeing pictures of the hair! I absolutely HATE HATE HATE talk radio. My dad would always listen to it, especially on long trips. I wanted to rip my ears off.

I think you would look wonderful with Giselle hair!! I like listening to talk radio too--but I listen to AM970 out of Alex. in the mornings--mostly political.

You will miss Louisiana when you move!! I wish you well on your next move and would like to stay in touch by blogging!! I can send you some "Louisiana" every once and a while.

Can't wait to see pictures of your hair. I know it will look fab!

I'm with you on the getting old thing.... I'm 29 and I can't stay up late anymore either. I also love Saturday Night Fever! Young Travlota = hot dancing moves! I would totally get rid of 50% of my clothes for a chance to live in Italy!!!

Um, my husband and I have been known to be in bed at 8pm hahaha. What can I say? Our good tv is in our bedroom :)

I love her hair. If I could pull off long hair I would so copy her.

Now only if I could look like her...

I can't stay up to 12 to save my life. I'm doing good if I make it to 11! :) And I also have much more fun curled up on the couch/in the bed watching a movie than I do going out on the town.

I never really watched Saturday Night Fever, but I feel the same way about Grease!

Jill said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog is so cute! I totally feel old too. Lately I have to pee a lot...I've been wondering if this is a part of getting older? Yuck.

Honey said...

i'm definitely excited for you to pop over to germany. we'll have a blast.

Okay we are too much alike...I guess I'm 40 too! 10:00 is late to me and a rented DVD from the movie store constitutes a great date-night! ha! Maegan said...

lol ...I hate going out....totally would rather stay in ...also find myself listening to NPR more often than my 13 year old version would like to admit!

However, I go for 80's music over anything else ...and no, men do not understand clothes ...err, unless they are gay!
