The Real Signs of Aging

People say hearing or memory is the first thing to go, but it’s not; we start aging a long time before then. Below are the real signs that you aren’t getting any younger.

  1. You wake up in the middle of the night to pee. In your teens and twenties, you could drink a 2-liter bottle of soda, go to bed at 2 am, wake up at 12 pm, and have a 5 min morning pee. Then one day that stops, you wake up at 6 am, it wasn’t a noise or an alarm. It’s your own bladder saying get up now, or I’m wetting the bed. 
  2. Pizza for breakfast gives your heartburn or eating two hours before bed gives you heartburn. That first heartburn is rough; you like what the heck is going on?!
  3. You stop staying up to watch the ball drop on New Year’s Eve.
  4. Teenagers start calling you Sir or Ma’am. 
  5. The songs you listened to while growing up are now on the Classic Rock/Pop/Rap station. 
  6. You make an involuntary noise when picking stuff up or sitting down after a long day of work. 
  7. An afternoon nap becomes the highlight of a weekend.

I’m a world traveler and an amateur photographer, to date, I've visited six continents and twenty seven countries. Due to bills (and a desire to eat), I am forced to work a mundane nine to five job to pay for my true passion. This blog is a way for me to share my crazy creative side, to share my travel photos with cheeky stories, travel tips, or details on how the photo was taken. Come join me as we travel the world together, without having to leave the house or get out of your PJs.
