I guess Im officially old enough for birthdays to be really fucking depressing.

Nothing like being another year closer to death to become engulfed in regrets for every way in which you've fucked up. Where does that highway go to? Where is that large automobile? This is not my beautiful house! this is not my beating wife!

Midlife crisis unlocked

Well, to be fair, in your case it's more like  really late-mid / fully commenced elderly life crisis.

Only 24 myself.
But, aye, you're still pretty young.
Shoot, I last saw a video of a 109 year old veteran smoking a cigar on a National Geographic video. Well, I can't say everyone can reach that age heheh...

Amateurs. Get on my level and have a constant "whole life crisis" since the moment you turned like, 23.

Pfft, I've felt like that since I was 4.

>>1149870

Thanks?

Meh, it's almost over and barely anything happened. Had dinner with some friends and that's about it.

It's so interesting that this is how people view things these days.  Survival feels so guaranteed that we feel like we're owed life.  That it's a given, and death is some far off thing.

We celebrate birthdays because that we live at all is unusual.  We're not closer to death, we're several decades past it.  We managed to make it another year without dying when we really should have.

Birthdays are an excuse. Traditionally they're an excuse to be happy and celebrate, but they work just as well as an excuse to be miserable. The day itself means nothing besides what it means to you.

Firstly, it's hardly a bew phrase, I mean "one day closer to death" is a lyric in a famous pink floyd track that's about 50 years old at this point, for instance.

Secondly, it's not an expression of simple existential dread, but a complex expression of regret for how much time is running out to be able to build a life one wanted, one that one would be happy to live.

It's hard to feel grateful for being alive when being alive becomes increasingly unbearable.

 No.1149895

Yeah same.

Probably why these days all I really want to do is adventure, fuck and travel. I've wasted my life and need to make up for it.
