Top Ten Tuesday: Twenty

Top Ten Tuesday: Twenty

20thLast week, I entered the second decade of my life. Don’t worry, though.  There are plenty of other things turning twenty this year.

Ten Things that will turn Twenty in 2015

1. The DVD (Digital Versatile Disk or Digital Video Disk)

When I was little, movie previews still said, "Coming soon to VHS."

So does that make me the same age as Andy’s little sister?

4. Teacher Barbie


5. The scroll wheel


6. Winnie the Pooh and Foamy Tree house

I had one of these!

7. Xtracycle

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?
