^^Yes, it's awful. I mean, I'm still mentally and economically stuck in my 20s, and yet, time hurtles on.

^ Same.

When you have to put your glasses on for any task that involves looking at something closely. Also when you don't put your glasses on your home looks cleaner!

^Actually, I feel simultaneously in my 20s and in my 40s. And I need to finish going through puberty. And I feel like I've been training for the crone era my whole life. Perhaps because it is the one age when a woman can be whatever she wants, because nobody cares.

Very accurate. Women are never-endingly judged, in ways men never are, throughout their younger lives, primarily on their appearances. I've heard many women say that they only truly felt liberated and free to do what they really liked once they'd got to an age in which they felt they no longer garnered this kind of attention and scrutiny.

That's how I read it, too. And also what I have perceived. Maybe I just expressed myself poorly!

"which is, of course, a later in life sampling of the reality of men's lives from the age of 10"

Interesting comment – how do men become invisible from the age of 10?

I was in vrchat yesterday and went to a recreation of the Malibu club in gta Vice City and it brought this feeling back. Listening to that 80s music.



The feeling of playing second life, hl2/garrys mod when they first came out. The magic of that time. I used to dislike the player model for the main character in Vice City as it was so simple, but now I am nostalgic for it. I'm also a bit peeved about people calling player models skins now, rather than that being a texture change.

I want to move into my own flat before I hit perimenopause. That was always one of my life goals, except it was supposed to happen a lot sooner. Quite startling I haven't managed it. Just need to find my motivation which seems to have disappeared at the age of 40 and has only worsened since lockdown...

^Yes, they've missed out if they've never made a mix tape for their friends!

Hello Dougella. You were very supportive to me a couple of years back when I was in a bad way (as you always are to everybody!)

Staying up to watch something at 1am is out of the question. There’s nothing to consider, it’s a no.

^ I have a Bananarama cassette tape somewhere. Now I'm really showing my old age and my poor taste in 80's music. I can't say I miss those days when I had to pull my favourite chewed up tapes out of the player.

I've been ageing ever since I was born. It doesn't show any signs of slowing down or stopping. At this rate, by the time I reach sixty I'll be sixty!

Bananarama reminds me of when I was a youngster and of when my dad was still alive. Music evokes so many memories.

There's nothing wrong with 80's music. Listen to it all you like and laugh at those laughing at you.

Early 80s music really good, but by the late eighties rather patchy I thought.
