Aging

Twenty nine isn't old right? It's almost three decades but thirty isn't that old either right?

As I stand on the threshold of my 3rd decade in this world, I really starting to feel my age. I need my full 8 hours of sleep every night no matter it is a weekday or a weekend.

I am also getting very forgetful or maybe I am just easiler distracted now. Just take for an example, I realised my motorcycle's starter isn't working properly. I was kind of irritated by that turn of events, knowing that I have to spend money on it. I made a mental note to myself to add that to my to-dos. I got home which was just 5 minutes away, I promptly forgot all about it. All I was left with was this vague sense that I was supposed to be angry about something and I had no idea what.

This is bad. Is this what I have to look forward to? Is this what aging is? No graceful white hair on my head, no slow acumulation of wisdom and wrinkles at the same time. Just one moment you are able to do it and the next moment it's the hardest thing in the world.

This isn't the slow decay of life that I had imagined at all.
