Being Old

I was playing hoops today at the outdoor courts at NC State and started thinking about being old.  It is funny how no matter what age you always think you are old.  When you get into high school you think you are all grown up. When you get into college you look back at high school kids and think they are young and now you’re really an adult. And when you are in your 20-30s you look at the college kids and think they are just kids.  The only thing I could think of is that we only have a limited perspective of where we’ve been and how far we’ve come.

Why do we always feel the need to be old?
