Three Decades in the Making... [May. 12th, 2005|01:11 pm]
Nicodemus
Well, as of today, I'm 30 years old. Dang! Still seems odd.

I was talking to my dad recently, who's more experienced in the matter of aging, and he said that as I grow older I can expect to repeat myself in conversations, lose some of my hearing, be more cynical, find it harder to remember names and dates, and repeat myself. Considering where I am now on all of these scores, I really worry about what I'll be like at 60...

Looking back, when I was born, computers were still mostly mainframes. The first commercial computer network was created that year.

I've been programming computers for about two-thirds of my life.

I've been involved in furry fandom for a full third of my life.

I've been married for about one seventh of my life.

I've been on LiveJournal for about one twelfth of my life.

I've been working on this post for about 0.0000887% of my life.

Happy birthday to you!

You will also see signs at some places regarding age and purchase of tobacco or alcohol.. and the years start to be ones you remember.

It's my (and mys sister's) birthday anniversary, too.

Looking at that timeline, just imagine how powerful your computer will be 10 years from now.

Stop drooling... that's rude.

Happy Birthday!
