I love being twentysomething but the more I think about getting older, the more I get excited about being seventysomething and here is why:
1. You’ll stop giving a f***
You’ll finally be at a stage in your life where it truly doesn’t matter what people say or think about you. Love me or hate me, it’s no longer my problem.
2. Senior deals
How I miss student discounts, but hey, you can look forward to senior deals, life will be sweet once again.
3. You’ll know who you are and you’re amazing at giving advice
After trying to figure out who you are for years and years, you’ll have it all down by now. People will turn to you for advice and you’ll be able to share all that wisdom accumulated over decades.
4. You’ll get away with anything and everything
Rudeness, acting out, singing and dancing publicly or ignoring road laws (I nearly ran over an old man on a bike yesterday, who disregard a red light…as you do), the world is your oyster and social etiquettes and rules are there to be challenged.
What can I say, this is when the party starts. Now is the time to iron your best outfit, polish those blue suede shoes and hop on a cruise ship for months at a time.
6. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert, snack
Finally no one expects you to be a size 0 anymore, so you can turn your life into a culinary adventure and eat all those delicious creations you avoided for years. One cronut, two cronut, three cronut, sugar rush!
