This weekend I left my 20's behind in a blaze of glory.

Actually, it was more a blaze of sugary icing, but my point still stands. To answer the question I've been getting lately: No, turning 30 doesn't bother me at all. I've learned a lot about life in the last 10 years that can't be taught in a classroom. And I'm looking forward, perhaps foolishly, to learning more.

Y'know, in some ways I'm looking forward to my 30s too. I mean, my 20s have had some amazing things- getting married, having a baby- but along with that have been lots of hard lessons, humbling situations, etc. I'm hoping my life will be more stable and less stressful at 30.

We'll see how that goes.

Don't count on it. I think we'll always need those lessons.

Personally, i'd like a nice, long break from those lessons. I wish I was one of those people who knows everything and does everything right. Well, not really. They do exist, you know. Nobody likes them, but they do exist.

I don't believe it for a second.

I guess I could almost believe it, but not quite.
