Hello everyone, if you’re reading this, then maybe you agree with my title or maybe you’re just one of those people who wants to criticize my life opinions, either way I suggest you get help. It sucks to agree that Birthdays sucks and it sucks to criticize other people’s life opinions.
So my birthday’s coming up and it SUCKS! I hate it! Duh! Who doesn’t right? I mean ever since I turned 24 I hated birthdays. I even forgot my age on my 26th birthday. That’s how much I didn’t care about birthdays. To me 24 years old is almost 27 and 27 is in your late twenties which is almost 30, and 30 might as well be 35. I’m now turning 32; this to me is about 35, which might as well be 40! No explainable logic to this, it’s just how I feel about aging. Now I know why seniors like to talk about the “good ole days”. I miss the good ole days, particularly when l was still a teen. When time seems too slow and parents seems too illogical.
A couple of months ago my dad-in-law turned 60, which for me is just the right age to be called a grandpa. But even at that age he looks young, he could still pass for a 54 and I’m quite sure it’s not because of his diet. He could finish a large bottle of jam in one day, god help him. On the other hand, my mom became a grandma when she was only 49, which I think is very lucky. Being a young grandma/grandpa is the advantage of marrying at 19 and having lots of kids in your 20s. I guess that’s pretty common during land before time (in the 50s or 60s) wherein our mothers married very very early and have a dozen of kids.
Actually it’s the aging look that’s been bugging me. Age is not just a number unless you shove your face with botox, plastic surgeries and maybe anti-aging elixirs. But if I try those will I still come out looking human? Maybe not. I don’t wanna risk looking like Cruela DeVille ate Arnold Schwarzenegger.
My mom looks young for her age, perhaps it’s the vitamins that she drinks along with 4 cups of coffee everyday, or her rule of ‘only fruit for breakfast’, or it’s the Tai-Chi exercise she does everyday or maybe it’s the fact that she owns 13 different dogs! Who knows? Sometimes when we go out, some people would ask us if we’re sisters. What a huge insult (to me)! Seriously, one time at a restaurant she ordered a porridge and I ordered a dessert. When the orders came the waiter gave me the porridge and the dessert to my mom. What the #$%& right?! So I asked my mom
Me: Ok mom, what stuff are you using?
Mom: Nothing. I’m still using the moisturizer I showed you.
Me: Liar! That’s what I’m using.
Mom: Yours might be expired
Me: ( whatever )
My sister gave me an early birthday present; it’s a face mask as you can see. “Its going to prevent wrinkles, moisturize your skin and ward off evil spirits” she said. So all I have to lose is 20 minutes of my time a week. Why not ?.
Ok if I get good results I’ll write a post about this, otherwise forget it. I don’t like to criticize online.
So before I start worrying about crow’s feet and feeling extremely old and dusty HEEELP MEEE! What’s your anti aging secrets?
