04:57 pm - Getting older ...
So far, I'm not too displeased with the whole "getting older" thing, except for one bit :

Why am I still clumsy ? Really, you'd think my body would have learned better by now. *sigh*
And I'm clumsy despite a fairly good degree of coordination (I fence, and do ok; I can still juggle 5 balls; I play twitchy computer games ok (for my age) too ). And yet, I can sometimes reach over a table for one thing and discover an "invisible" object on the way, or stumble gracelessly over a crack in the pavement.

Oh well, let's hope that someday super-nano-electro-genetic-engineering[tm] can rework me to work better.

(just to avoid any confusion, this isn't related to my birthday, which is in September; just a random thought)
Current Mood: confusedconfused

Don't worry about it. I know a commie greenie hippie pianist who, when away from the piano, will still randomly knock things over and drop stuff. After ten years of practice, he can play badminton without falling over. Much.

It seems that training can alleviate clumsiness in highly specific areas, but innate general awkwardness is here to stay (and probably more common than you think--one tends to notice one's own more than others').
