Age Brackets

This weekend I went to Sonic and the lovely car hop told me if I filled out this survey (see the highlighted portion of the receipt) I could get a free Route 44 drink with purchase of a food item. I fill out surveys like a crazy person if it means money off or a free something. So yesterday morning, I log into talktosonic.com to fill out my information. I'm chugging away answering questions, then it gets to the generic questions.

Sex: Female
Ethnicity: White
Age: 18-24

Age: 25-34

Twenty five to thirty four.
Twenty five to THIRTY FOUR?

I do not feel 34, but I do feel very 25. I am no longer surprised when people get engaged or pregnant. I am used to not getting drunk because of reasons like "work tomorrow" or "driving home". I have completely lost touch with "teen culture" and do not know half of the people on the cover of J-14. (Do people still read J-14?) I turned down a semi-spontaneous road trip because I needed to save the money for like my future or whatever. The idea of my own children still scares the crap out of me; however, I can  see their cuteness (especially the fat ones).

I feel like 34 is a lifetime away, but I guess that's my new age bracket now. I have to tell you though, I feel like I have more in common with my 18 year old cousins than I do with any 34 year old. I mean, I just googled how to eat a pear and I'll be calling my mom after work to make her help me enroll in my health insurance.

Until Next Time,
