    I think they're akin to apples. Or maybe it's pupples. Or Weebles. It's some Penn Dutch thing, them scrupples...I see 'em on the Amish shows, yep...

    Had my first day today. :eek: Why do so many people have to stop in front of you in the halls to text?! :rolleyes:

    They just do. You'll get used to it. Or just do what I did and shove your way past them :smirk:

    Haha. :p It's funny, actually. A lot of people texting are oblivious to the fact that they are causing a HUGE traffic jam behind them. ;)

    Texting is forbidden in my school, thankfully.

    Students generally had to keep their cell phones switched off and they had to keep them in their bags. Didn't stop my classmates. One was notorious for playing with his iPhone around during class (he even called it "sweetheart" once).

    Frog I feel old. Students in MY day didn't have their own phones...unless it was that thing with a super-long cord which you dragged down the hall to chat with friends in your room...

    *feeling around for glasses, which are on nose*
    Now where'd I leave those danged things?

    You're never too old for cartoons!

    ...Though you may notice a difference in the cartoons you watch...

    I agree with you, Vincent.
    I don't want to go up either. Time is going too fast for us and we've lost a number of people, including Jerry Nelson.
    I wish we could age backwards like science fiction.

    Just because you're old doesn't mean your spirit has to be one of an adult. I'm notorious at school for being "the really innocent and optimistic guy".

    What you can do to feel young: fix yourself a glass of milk and cookies and a sandwich with the crusts cut off. Eat while watching cartoons. Works for me.

    I'm already having a crisis and dreading turning 30 next year. I'm scared to death of getting older. I cried for two days straight when I knew I wasn't gonna be a teenager anymore. And even though there's nothing I can do about it, it's almost like I have anxiety an over it.

    I have felt the exact same way. It really is rather frightening to think about sometimes.

    I dreaded turning 30 also, but you know what? It doesn't feel that different. As many of you have already said, it's possible to get older without losing your childlike wonder and imagination.

    heralde Well-Known Member

    Oh yeah definitely, I just think for me it's a realization of time passing and that causes the anxiety.

    Oh I still act like a child. Lol I just don't wanna get old. :p

    Me too! My mom told me I act like a five-year old yesterday ever since she can tell I was watching Muppet movies and stuff. It's just too hard for me to act my own age.
