Today I turn 29

Which leaves me one year about from the big 30. I don’t know what makes it big, I don’t know why it’s been perpetuated as a milestone birthday. Maybe it’s a figurative transition to legit adulthood. I mean, by 30 you should probably have your shit together, have a good career, a 401k, maybe a house, a spouse and some kids, right? I don’t know these answers. I’ve never believed that this so called milestone has to mean that much. I mean there are a lot of times I wake up and I definitely DO NOT feel like I have my shit together. I have a career and a shadow of a retirement, but- no house, spouse or kids.

But I’m feeling A-OK about all of that.  Like I’ve said in the past, I don’t care about getting older. I’ve accomplished what I have at this particular time in my life and I’m not going to feel guilty if I haven’t achieved these arbitrary milestones.  I WILL however, jump on the 30 before 30 bandwagon and challenge myself to do, try and learn 30 things in the next 365 days!
