When did you first think to yourself, "I am getting old"?

I am only twenty-three, but I have had such moments. I first thought it when the whole emo trend began. I actually caught myself saying, "I just don't get kids today." I also feel old whenever I hear about some young band or actor for the first time, and realize all too late that they are really famous with teens(Jonas Brothers, High School Musical, etc).
