Feeling My Age

Last night I went with my boss to this industry event. It was a bust for work related stuff, but I did get a pang of jealousy.  The event was a book store launch by this architecture association.  The event was sponsored by Absolut Vodka, so there was a lot of people who showed. But the people were either 20-something grad students or older-professor type and me.  That’s right. I felt like I was the only mid-thirties something.

After getting over myself (only a little bit), I was just really jealous of their age. Their freedom (I’m getting deja vu… I feel like I’ve talked about this in the not so distant past.) And I was thinking, It must be really nice to be a grad student in New York. You go to all these fun parties… sponsored by Absolut.  Ah to be young again! And like any old fogy, youth is indeed wasted on the young.
