Man, now, I am definitely older than I used to be. Also, when I grow out my beard, my mustache juts out right under my nose. It's like a cruel joke played by the mustache gods. Why do you grow so much under my nostrils?
I'm not old, but older than I was, and it shows up in my face. The area around my eyes is bleached out for some reason. It's like the opposite of dark circles. I work with high-schoolers and people much younger than me. I feel like they generally aren't jaded, which is super refreshing. It's hard, though, not to look at them and think, "Damn, if I didn't have the chance to do it all over again." Not that I would do anything different, really. I would just kill it if I knew then what I know now. And the worst part is that these "kids" are pretty much as mature as I am already, just that they haven't been through all the shit to get there.
So, 2nd 3rd of my life, here I come.
