Happy 30th

It’s my 30th birthday today. Yay, happy birthday to me! My coworkers had a lot of fun with that while I treated them to a customary bag of candy everyone brings in on their birthdays.

“Are those wrinkles under your eyes?”
“Time to settle down, start a family, kids, plant a tree, all that stuff”
“Hey dude, you’re old!”

What does 30 mean to me? I don’t know exactly. Surely it means that I am 10 years behind my parents on starting a family, they were 20 when I was born. It also means that I should get my shit in order, stop acting like a big kid sometimes, or at least act the grown up part. But will the kid within me let go? It better…

By most accounts I’m not doing too bad. I have a beautiful girlfriend, a good job, live in peace with my folks that put a roof over my head, have a hobby that keeps me entertained on cold winter evenings… there’s plenty more to mention but what I’m getting at is that turning 30 doesn’t change much at all. Sure, I need to consider that I’m not getting any younger, but things are alright and will hopefully get even better.

So yeah, happy birthday to me.

    Happy birthday!
    The mention of the beautiful girlfriend, the roof over your head and that ellipsis make me think I know what that hobby of yours is that keeps you entertained on cold evenings!
