A New Decade

Today I turned 30. That feels so weird to say, I am 30. At lunch, my boss said something about a 29 year old, and I thought, holy shit, I am not in my 20's anymore. A whole new decade, a new part of life, right?

Funny thing, birthdays. I don't feel any different than I did yesterday, yet, I am in a whole new year of my life. Everyone tells me this is a big birthday, that the 30's are the best, blah blah blah gettingoldcakes, but... It all seems the same to me, thus far. Should I feel different? Older?

I generally don't like my birthdays, I kind of tend to hide. But today, I felt like I was looking at things differently. I stayed at my parent's house last night, so had to take the train to work this morning, and, for the first time in forever, I got a seat. Good sign for the first act of my 30's. I don't know that it means anything, but if I believed in signs I would think this bodes well for the rest of this year. There is so much that I hope...

But mainly, I hope, the seats are plentiful and the rides get better.

NOPE...you start reading the Readers Digest for foods that will help you live longer...AND you catch yourself looking in the mirror and saying "I look like my mother....."
Gets worse when you hit your 40's (like me)
