I'm Feeling Old

I have decided to not discuss anything much work related on the blog to protect my job, but this is more personal issues than work related. And I really need to vent it out.

So, I'm in training for the new job and part of that has me out of town, living out of my suitcase Sun night-Fri. With a roomie. Who's 9 years younger than I. Need I say more?

Oh my fucking god, do I feel old. I've always been a homebody. I'd much rather stay home and read or watch a movie than head out to the bars. According to the roomie, this makes me "no fun." Or rather when I give another lame excuse for not going out, I hear "that's no fun." I finally came out and said point blank that I've got a family to talk about, think about, along with other work, etc. I'm in a bit of a different place than you are, yadda yadda, yadda. And all that bullshit.

Can we just accept that we have a different way of enjoying ourselves and that's totally alright. Please.

a 24 year old is all about partying and doesn't get the real importance of family & life.

Don't take it personally, she has no clue.

Hope you're doing OK.

So she is already driving you crazy after 1 week! Cherish your weekends at home!

oh boy do i know what that's like! 20-somethings know nothing about being 30-something and that's just the way it is sadly. my single friends think i'm a dud. but oh well! one day they'll walk in our shoes. one day...

Considering my birthday is tomorrow and all I want to do is get carry out so I can stay on my comfy couch, I'm with you...going out is overrated once you've hit your 30's!

If you're old, I'm ancient. :) I never understood the bar scene when I was younger and it still baffles me now. Believe it or not, I've been to the local pub with my moms group more than I ever went to bars when I was single! The crowd is older and more likely to be discussing what's happening in town. Instead of rocking chairs and coffee, we're on barstools with margaritas. Heh. That being said, do what YOU need to do to get you through the week, not what roomie wants. We'll see who has the better job performance in a couple of years, right?
