Whether we like it or not, there comes a time when everybody grows up, including ourselves and we realise that we’re not kids anymore.
Oftentimes, we don’t notice ourselves or the people around us getting old until one day, something unusual sort of wakes us up and makes us realise that we’ve aged.
Here’re some of the funny, wholesome and sad moments that made these Malaysians realise that they’ve aged.
1. Leaving the club early
You know you’re old when you choose to voluntarily head home after a few hours of dancing in the club. Ain’t nobody staying till closing time anymore- we have a bedtime self-care routine to do at home.
“It just suddenly hit me when we were dancing on the dancefloor. I just thought I was so tired and so ready to go home. Then we deadass just left,” Rachy reminisced on how she used to be way more energetic.
2. Looking out for good laundry days
When we were younger, sunny windy weather meant staying in and napping or going out to play. But when you start living alone and doing your own house chores, sunny windy weather means the perfect time to air-dry your clothes outside.
“I think it kinda hit when I was hanging out with my friend who also lives alone. The weather that day was so sunny and windy, and the first thing we had in mind was ‘Wow, what a nice day to do the laundry’,” shared Megs lightheartedly.
3. Changing dating app age preferences
When you use dating apps, you’re able to filter people by age by selecting the age range of people you’d like to swipe on. So, your age range preference will (hopefully!) change as you age too. Y’all can’t be 34 and dating 22 year olds like you were at 24!
“I was changing my age preferences in the apps once a year and at one point I just realised, ‘I’ve grown another year older’,” said Hung.
4. Being constantly tired
“Remember when we used to be able to survive a whole day of high school? Now, I feel like death just after a day of work,” Kevin shared.
It’s crazy! We used to wake up at 5am, go for class till 2pm then do sports or other extracurricular activities till 7pm, then go for tuition! Those were the days…
5. Can’t stay up anymore
In the same vein, it seems like those who used to be night owls can’t stay up as much anymore.
“When I was younger I’d be able to stay up till 6am and wake up at 8am the next day. I wouldn’t even feel tired – I’d feel surprisingly fresh,” shares Nel.
However, these days, Nel is already asleep at 1am and even then, waking up at 8am is tiring as heck!
6. Budgeting with an Excel sheet
“Before I was budgeting, I’d be taken aback when it came time to make my big annual payments like property taxes and insurance.”
“I’d always end up suddenly having to spend a lot more than planned, which depleted the amount I had left for daily expenses like meals,” said Bryan.
So, realising that he has financial commitments that he needs to budget for to fulfil was what made Bryan realise that he’s a big boy now.
7. Noticing her skin deteriorate
When it comes to age, Dorathy says that skin condition is one of her dead giveaways.
