Older than I once...

Older than I once was, but younger than I will be.....

I am turning 36 next month and I am pretty sure that I am excited about it. Excited to be officially into my late 30s. 35 sounds like a young gentleman, 36 sounds like a man, a grown ass man. Not quite an old timer, almost 40, and a quick 10 from 50. Here I am driving to work with the radio blaring and typing away on my blackberry. Today I happen to be wearing khakis and a nice black shirt, usually I am jeans and a T, and I even rock the long johns under a short sleeve shirt from time to time. 36 seems to be a weird age for me, I am more excited about my b-day than I have been in the past, yet it is an odd excited. I am at a cross roads. Do I need to trade my sneakers for loafers, my mac for a pc, set my volume at 5 instead of 8? I am always amazed when I can actually feel myself going into the next stage of my life. It has nothing to do with age, yet maturity. With me I suppose this might be a point at my life that things have slowed down a bit in my brain and I actually have a second to sit back and enjoy, and figure out who I am and where I want to go. The good part is that I am one step closer to being able to nap, and drive like an idiot- I think that starts at 56.

There's plenty of younger people that drive like idiots. Especially in my city!
Age is all a frame of mind, in my opinion!

I'm turning 36 in a few months too. What I'm thinking is that it was half my life ago since I got out of high school. Not totally sure what that means, but I don't feel old yet.
