So I recently turned 30

To others' surprise, turning 30 wasn't a detrimental moment of panic for me but more of a monumental cue for growth. As in, I didn't freak out, or cry, or get depressed by any means.

So, it’s here at last. Thirty years ago today I entered this crazy, crazy world. A tiny little slip of a thing (yes, really – I was referred to as a “skinny little bat”!) I was born in the middle of a month that guaranteed me a lifetime of friends being too poor to celebrate with me, restaurants full of office parties and people giving me joint birthday/Christmas gifts....more

I'm Turning 30 and I'm Good With It

I was surprised to see that one of my posts included in The BlogHer Community's Most Loved Posts of 2009 was actually something I wrote back in 2007.
