Last Day of my Twenties

Today is the last day of my twenties. Tomorrow is the big 3-0. I am sure I will be fine next week. But these past few weeks I have had a hard time saying goodbye to my twenties. The decade has flown by. I have accomplished a lot in it, but not everything that I thought I would. I guess that just means it gets bumped to the next decade's list, eh? I am still single, but I have a degree, a job, a life of my own. I am accountable to only myself and I am proud of the things that I have done so far in my life. I still have some things to adjust to as I leave my twenties. Things that will be resolved hopefully in the days, months, and years to come.

Today I spent the day with my good friend from university. We went shopping, had lunch, and went for a walk along the river. We talked about getting a tattoo or piercing today, but decided that it isn't really necessary for me to have either of those things today. Sure it is the end of my twenties, but maybe tomorrow I will wake up and not want a tattoo or piercing for my thirties. :) It was a good day even if nothing dramatic happened. Just a day spent renewing our friendship. Just a day preparing for the future.

The shopping trip included a new pair of black boots. They are for a trip I am getting ready to go on in early April. I am meeting my dad in New York City. I haven't been to NYC yet, and this is my birthday present this year. I am excited!! We are going to go for baseball's opening week. We are hoping to see the Yankees play. We are also planning on going to see the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY. We have always wanted to go to it, and we want to see baseball games in all of the stadiums. We have been to a few stadiums over the years, but want to make it to Yankee Stadium before the new one is built. So this is the year to try.

So goodbye twenties. It was nice knowing you. You brought me a lot over the years. Hopefully I will be better off because of you.

Happy Birthday! I turned 34 on the 8th... and I'm still surviving! The thirties aren't so bad but "30" itself wasn't my best year... it's all just a number! An SU! birthday stamp says: "It's not a matter of counting the years, It's a matter of making the years count!" So here's to the first anniversary of your 29th birthday :) Have a great day!
