Old Fart

I debated using that title, as I really don't care for that 'f' word as a lady, but as of late, it truly sums up the way I feel due to the following reasons.

1. My sister, who is 7 years younger than me, began college this week. I cannot believe it. We are just a family with two kids, so to now have her in the higher education world is crazy to me.

2. The local radio station, Krth101, an oldies format, has been incorporating more and more non-oldies, in my opinion, through their rotation. For example: "Crazy for You" by Madonna. That was an 80s hit. I was born in the mid-80s. Thus, does that make me an old fart for a song being played on that station?!? Then yesterday, they played Men at Work's "Land Down Under" a 1982 hit. I beg of you-are the 80s now considered classic oldies? To me, the 50s and 60s will always remain that era. However, as time goes on, clearly that is relative to the day in age. I'm fairly sure my fellow 20-somethings aren't ready to be lumped in that category.

3. I get home about 6:15 every night. By the time I exercise, make dinner, and shower, it's usually 8:30/9. Where does the time go? I am going to hit the hay in an hour I am so exhausted, if not earlier from fatigue. Unless I give something up like exercise, there isn't any time for laying around watching tv, going out, or just normal fun. It is the weekends and work week evenings that could really use a few extra hours at night.

I am starting to understand the idea of a quarter life crisis. Oy.

thank you! i was wondering if i was the only one w/ the beef about the oldies stations. Have an 80's station, and maybe early 90's then let the 50's, 60's and non classic rock 70's be kept in their own sacred bubble!

and the old feelings just keep coming, but there is some good to it, I promise :)

I've been taking serious naps in the middle of the day. The kind where you dream, drool, the whole shebang. And then I'm still tired by 10pm! I'm blaming the heat, but still...

Seriously, between naps, losing patience, and hearing Madonna on Krth TODAY in an evil stroke of irony, I am beginning to think I am a 60 year old woman in a 25 year old body.
