# One thing that never fails at making you realize how old you are getting, is having a hang-over. http://i.imgsafe.org/2a19142f79.jpg Today I am hungover. But my hangovers aren't what they used to be. Now, if I get a hangover I am incapacitated for multiple days. And violently ill. What used to be a few hours of tummy-sickness cured by a glass of water and ibuprofen is now 48 hours of **DEATH**. This lead me to start thinking about how old I am getting. Things I took for granted as a Spring chicken: * lack of hangover * having energy * sex-drive * ability to eat all the food and never gain fat * ability to retain information * cheery disposition * hope Things I did not realize would be an issue but which are now an issue: * body constantly achey * 48 hour **DEATH** hangovers * inability to retain information Seriously though, I am tired, achey, and can't remember anything. I have to write notes all over the place just to remember simple things. I need reminders to check my reminders. As typing this I am realizing maybe this isn't normal for a 28 year old? I feel like I am physically, and mentally, an old lady. It can't be normal to have so many issues at 28. Perhaps, I should not have read Hunter S. Thompson and Timothy Leary and decided to be a "drug-enthusiast" in my youth. http://i.imgsafe.org/2a43a6cc71.jpg *Seriously though, toilet.* ### If you're a Spring chicken still, enjoy it. Don't take it for granted and don't take "You won't be young forever" lightly. In a few years, everything will hurt.
