Well, I’m 30 today. The big three-oh. Three decades of shenanigans behind me.
This comic sums up my feelings on the subject.
Actually, that’s a slight exaggeration. On reflection, I think I have learned some things. Gained some wisdom. Though, as my D&D books promised, it has come at the cost of a -1 Constitution. If you’re in your early twenties or below, enjoy going out and partying into the wee hours, while you can. Now, I stay up over 1 AM and I have to pay the price. Just don’t bounce back from stuff like I used to. And my stomach has started rebelling against certain food groups, no longer can I play human trash compactor. Goodbye jalapeno peppers, I will miss you. 🙁
It’s certainly been a year of changes. I did the bravest thing I’ve ever done, the thing I’ve dreamed of and planned for, for about a decade. It’s terrifying, and exhilarating, and surreal, and I’m still not sure how it will all turn out.
But I don’t regret doing it. I have never felt quite so alive. 😀
Here’s to the next 3 decades. Let’s see where the seas take us.
