True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.

Kurt Vonnegut

While my high school class isn’t running any country (yet), the past few days I’ve had some experiences that are much alike to that terror.

It’s one thing that for years now I’ve had no idea who are these “stars” and “celebrities” the media are going on about all the time, but things start to get funny when it turns out that a majority of said celebrities are actually years younger than me.

The other day I was reading Wikipedia about… well, mostly anything. Then I was reading about soccer players, and I had to face the fact that the star of the Brazilian team, Neymar is three years younger than me.

I’m not the kind of person to start questioning what I’d achieved in life, and especially not one to compare myself to a world-class soccer player. But there was this realization that I’ll have to get used to the feeling of people younger than me rising to the top of the world. Oh well… have your fun there!
