So today I am officially 30 which means I have lived twice as long as a 15 year old but only 1/3 the life of a 90 year old. I am older than most of cast of friends was supposed to be when the series started, but younger than all the ladies on Golden Girls. I am older than the guy who started facebook but younger than …aaah let’s face it, I am older than anyone who has been successful at the dot com stuff.
At 30 I have had to give up hoping for a few things like growing taller, I am pretty sure I am at my adult height now – I can no longer wish to be an inch taller. I have also given up on having a brother or sister. I think after 30 years of being an only child I wouldn’t adjust well to having a sibling…those two things I will officially let go of today.
I won’t however stop the following just because I am 30…trying to fit into a girls size XL clothes as sometimes its cheaper than buying a ladies small, eating cotton candy whenever and wherever I see it, ordering a Happy Meal at McDonalds when I am not hungry enough for an adult one, calling my mom and ask her anything about baking/sewing or calling my dad and ask him anything about cars, money, golf.
A’ight better get back to work, it may be my birthday but I still have 35 more years until retirement.
