This is an experiment to see if there really are as few of us as people think.You can also use this to freak out your followers who think you’re 25 or something. Yay!
Don’t be afraid of “adulthood”. Look how cool I am, kids! *vigorous jazz hands*
year this photograph of children looking at their smartphones by Rembrandt’s ‘The
Night Watch’ in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam
[went viral.] It was often accompanied by outraged, dispirited comments such as
“a perfect metaphor for our age,” “the end of civilization” or “a sad picture of
…It turns out that the
Rijksmuseum has an app that, among other
things, contains guided tours and further information about the works on display.
As part of their visit to the museum, the children, who minutes earlier had admired
the art and listened attentively to explanations by expert adults, had been instructed
to complete an assignment by their school teachers, using, among other things, the
museum’s excellent smartphone app….
The tragic thing is that this — the truth — will
never go viral. So, I wonder, what is more likely to bring about the death of civilization,
children using smartphones to learn about art or the willful ignorance of adults
who are too quick to make assumptions?” José Picardo, Medium
Nope! 🙂 You’re never too old.
My sister’s 28 now – she still lives here. My 22 year old brother and I (19 and a half) live here, too. You’re never too old, don’t worry. ❤
33yo here checking in, got a brother 3 years my junior and we’re both living with the parents. The four of us are currently looking for a nice 3 bedroom house to move into when Mom retires in a few years. Every person is different, and every family unit is different. Find what works and don’t bother listening to people who don’t know your situation, basically.
37 year old checking in here. My parents and my uncle have properties that share a fence. (My Uncle’s house is one of the two houses my mother grew up in.) I lived on my own from the time I was 27 until I was 32 and an injury (and consequent loss of income) forced me to move back home. I still live with my Uncle, with my parents across the backyard, and all four of us eat dinner together whenever we can. And, don’t get me wrong, I loved having my own place, but you know what? What I have now is kind of amazing, too, especially because my Uncle isn’t young and he’d otherwise be living alone. But because he has lived alone a decent portion of his life, he respects my privacy and I respect his, but neither of us is alone unless we want to be, and that’s pretty great. ^_^ Also, my former neighbor is about 30 years older than I am and moved back in with her parents when she was in her late 40s, early 50s, and lived with them until they both passed away. You’re never too old to live with your family, whether they be your spouse/children, your parents, extended family, or found family. You’re doing just fine. ^_^
Just had a thought for an action hero thing: 30-something woman hero is doing her ass-kicking thing. One day, her boss shows up at her door, and tells her she has to stand down, or there will be consequences. “Honey, it’s not that you’re too old. It’s just the public don’t like to see a woman of your age saving the day. It feels emasculating”.
So woman is stripped of her support team, fellow agents, and is pretty much put on the shelf. She tries to do heroing, but keeps getting cockblocked by younger women or superhero men she used to work alongside.
Just when she’s hitting rock bottom (and sitting in her house wearing pyjamas and eating ice cream), there’s a knock at the door. Judi Dench is standing there, and our heroine assumes it’s a charity collection.
“Oh no, dear,” Dench says, smiling. “We’ve come to recruit you.”
“Recruit me? For what?”
“To do what we do best: save the bloody world.”
And all at once she’s part of a covert ops team made of all the older women who have been retired and who currently are holding the reins of managing the world.
I am here for this plan.
I need this movie.
Oh fuck me yes! With Maggie Smith as the joint founder with Dench!
