<walking by new kid that started at the office>

Thinks to self: Ya know, I don’t fit in with the kids starting new jobs. Haven’t for a while, I guess. Definitely no longer young. But I don’t really have anything in common with the old folks around here either. Not old either. I’m kinda like, I dunno… the adult version of a ‘tween? Like, right in the middle of the ages…

oh.. oh fuck no. Oh god they have a word for this, and it’s literally “middle” and “aged”. Goddammit, I’m middle aged. Goddamn you all to hell!!!!

  1. I feel for you. I had this realization a little bit ago when I was looking at a Pathfinder RPG source book, it had ages listed for each race for maturity, middle age, and old age. Middle age for humans is listed as being 35, and I’m currently 35. It was a bit disturbing.

  2. Hahaha, I’m currently training to be a highschool teacher and one of the teachers that I got to watch turned 30. So the class that he was in charge of in the afternoon (9th grade) held a bit of a surprise party, they had the room decorated and music prepared so when he entered they sang happy birthday.
    And after the song one of the students said “Sie sind jetzt ein Mann mittleren Alters.” (“You are now a middle aged man.”)
