21 versus 31

I am turning 31 years old in two days, and I think it's... kind of funny. I sure as hell don't feel 31, but then again, what is a 31 year-old supposed to feel like? I know that I am a completely different person than I was at 21, but I wonder how many differences have popped up in the past ten years. Let's compare, shall we?

A Typical Week
21: Go to the bar 5-6 times a week
31: Go to the gym 5-6 times a week

Nighttime Routine
21: Fall into bed at 3 a.m. after studying, partying, or bar-hopping
31: Wash face, brush teeth, use night cream. At 9:30 p.m.

Shopping for Groceries

31: Cart full of ramen noodles and fresh produce

Football Saturday Routine

Tolerance for Alcohol

Restaurant Choices
