I think I'm officially in my late twenties. I could make excuses when I was 28, but you don't get much later in your late twenties than 29.
Maybe I could say I'm mid-late twenties? Nah. I'm late twenties.
It feels... strange. 28 felt strange too, but 29 feels... stranger? Winkles are sticking around, my body doesn't hop out of bed, it more moans, and rolls, and fights to stay in bed longer. I seem to injure myself a lot easier, and everything just seems a lot looser and saggy. It was like that before... I think when I had my first child this all happened, but I seemed to notice it a lot more when I hit 29.
I heard a lot of "treasure it" and "have fun with it" and one "own it". How do I do these things? Complain less? Wow... I'm losing at owning it already. Maybe I'll look at my naked body more and say "it'll only get worse". Maybe I'll smile less to avoid wrinkles.
What am I even talking about? I don't even know. I guess I feel old already. I'm not sure what turning 30 is going to do to me if I already feel this way. I should probably get a sense of style since I've had 29 years to obtain this and still don't have it.
I don't even know what this post is about. I'm 29 and I feel strange. It wasn't a special birthday. When you clean up smeared poop twice on your birthday it punches you back into reality pretty quickly. More like beats you half to death back into reality. "Alright! I'm here! put down the switch blade! I know 29 isn't special!".
Maybe 30 will be special? I keep hoping that 30 is awesome. People will look at me with more admiration. I'll be wiser for some reason. They won't question me having children anymore. I'll look down on all the twenty somethings and cackle "Fools! You're all fools!!".
So what can I do with this year so it doesn't seem wasted? Health. Happiness. Hair. I felt like I need to put another "h" word in there. The three H's. Yes. That sounds good to me.
I apologize to anyone who reads this whole thing. Lots of rambling that I'm posting anyways because I want my grandchildren to either think I'm crazy or that older people being more mature is a sham!
