So long to my 20s
Today is the last day of my 20s...Yep, I turn 30 tomorrow.
It's kind of weird in a way, but then again, I feel like I've been in my 20s for-ever! I'm not feeling at all old, so that's good, I guess. It's now cliche, but it seems that 30 is the new 20. I don't really even know what that's supposed to mean, but I'll go with it!
I wouldn't want to be 20 again anyway. Nor would I want to relive my 20s. There have been A LOT of fun memories, but I think my 30s will be much more productive and stabile. I still look about the same (maybe better), make more money and "know" myself better now than I did in my early and mid-twenties. Plus, the whole job situation and relationships were both pretty much a nightmare in my 20s. I've learned a lot from all those bad experiences, however.
In addition, everyone I've talked to who've been in their 30s for a while always says that your 30s are better than your 20s....And since I'm smarter now than I was at 20, I'm going to listen to my elders and believe what they say!
It was an interesting 10 years! I started this age decade as a shy, closeted college boy at a small state university and am ending it a lot more confident in every way possible with a career in the city...My 20s will probably be the most change I'll ever see in one decade again.
So....20s, you've been fun and we've had a good 10 years together, but it's time for you to quietly slip away. I will revisit you often with the photos we took and in our stories with old friends of all the fun times that were had! So long.....
And hello to my 30s!
