on getting older

Not “old”, since the moment I claim I’m old, I’ll be getting at least 100 (if not more) people on my Facebook friend list coming after me with pitchforks.

Purely out of coincidence, it’s been 3 months since my last entry (oh sh**).
Over these 3 months, the Vancouver 2010 games have come and gone, one of the more or less local anime convention (at least for me) has come and gone, my twitter post count has gone over 3000 and still going, and last not but least (and rather recently), I’ve grown a year older.

I have somewhat reached an age where getting older doesn’t really get me much perks.
What do I mean by that? I mean I reached the age where I can legally drive years ago, I’ve been able to legally drink for a good number of years as well, but now the earliest I can get my next set of perks – as in “congratulations, you’ve reached age whatever and you qualify for senior discounts for x, y, and z” – won’t be for decades.
I do have to say, seeing my birthday come and go wasn’t all about gaining an age, but I feel it was a moment for me to reflect on what happened over the past 365 (or 366) days.

As I’ve been concentrating a lot more on my Japanese sites/blogs, I likely won’t be posting here all that frequently – however, feel free to check out my sub-culture related blog or my twitter as I do post/tweet in English from time to time.
