In Your Face

The tag line on my profile has been "staring at 30..." for a while now, and it's time to own up. It is my official last day in my twenties, so 30 is pretty much shoving itself into my personal space as we speak.

I have a lot of mixed emotions about this birthday, to be frank. Some things aren't quite how I envisioned them. That could be a really good thing. Thirty doesn't sound quite as young as I feel, but part of me has conceeded to not being THAT young anyways over the past couple years. I'm pretty sure high school kids think I'm ancient now, this is something I just need to face. But really, who cares what they think? And that is the mantra I think I will try my damndest to live by over the next decade: Be accountable to myself only. Because how I feel about myself, at the end of the day, I'm the one who has to go to sleep at peace with that.

{Politely} To hell with the rest of it.

I've spent the morning running errands with the QLP, and it's been great hanging out. [Thankfully, we are over yesterday's stomach bug.] Today, we leave for a weekend at the beach with friends and family, and I couldn't feel more loved and excited for the break. Not a bad way to starta decade.
