Happy Birthday to me!
I don’t know why, but I have been dreading this birthday. Something about turning 20 just makes me feel, well, old. I have two decades behind me. I am officially old, y’all.
I can hear you mocking me already. I know that twenty is technically young. Statistically, I still have over 50 years to live. I just feel old. Or maybe it’s that I feel too young to be old.
When I stumbled upon Ceara’s page titled “Thirty before Thirty,” I made a shocking realization: I will be thirty one day! I guess I always knew that fact, but it had never occurred to me that I would eventually grow up. Sometimes I still think I am only fourteen years old.
There is a lot I want to do before I turn thirty. So, taking Ceara’s lead, I have composed a list of thirty things to do before I turn thirty. Some goals are highly attainable; others will require dedication, perseverance, money, and patience. I look forward to whittling down this list before 2025.
I have posted a new page to keep track of my progress. Let’s see if I can knock all of these out! Any that you want to help me with?
