I definitely hear you, and though I got my start less formally, and in the 1980s I worked out a lot of the same observations that you did about OO.

My problem isn't OO specifically, I guess it's more that OO languages (outside, say C++) tend to treat that as first class at the expense of everything else.

And really, OO isn't my first go-to for solving a problem. I speak in templates - generic programming a lot - it's just often a more elegant way to code, and solves a lot of needs of both imperative and functional programming in practice.

So when I don't have it, I mourn it I guess. It's still that Thing(TM) that keeps calling me back to C++. Oh but I wish for a higher level language that I could do with what I do with C++.

Give me something like C# that works with something like STL and I will be in heaven.

That's what I want.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
