Birthday Eve

It’s the eve of my 29th birthday. I know, the blog says 30 by 30, but this is my year long journey to my 30th birthday.  30 is scary in so many ways. You should be completely mature, have a career path and be close to, if not already, married.  I think I’m mature, most of the time. I have changed careers more times than I can count; I have career a.d.h.d., but this year I will choose something and stick with it.  I am definitely nowhere near being married.  All of these sound like negatives but I don’t think they are. I’m a planner and a rule follower but in recent years I’ve become more of an explorer, a gypsy, finding my way and exploring options.  This will all change this year. I will move forward with my life.  I have accomplished so little yet so much in the past 29 years and I’m excited to see where this year takes me. To keep me on track I decided to make a list of the things I need to accomplish in the next year to soften the sound of 30. Here’s goes nothing. So here’s to living. To growing. To 29.

#1: start a blog.
