On my rapidly advancing age

Tomorrow is my thirtieth birthday. There seems to be an unwritten rule that by the time you turn thirty, you should have your shit together. Have a job. Have a house, whether rented or purchased. Preferably be married. Maybe have a couple of kids.

I have none of these things, and I'm totally okay with that.

I had plans to write a whole post about how while a lot of stuff in my life is the same as when I turned 20, there's also a bunch of stuff that's super different and I'm totally not the same person and blah blah blah. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut it wasn't working out the way I wanted. So instead, I'm just gonna say that I'm going to be away from the blog for the next few days because I'll be eating cake and drinking cocktails and hanging out with my friends.

And here - have some gifs that pretty much sum me up. Because everything is better with gifs.

Especially that last one... Catch you on the flipside!

  1. I think the very last one is about 110% me.

  2. If the Doctor doesn't have to grow up, then why should the rest of us? Follow his good example, I say!

    Have a fantastic celebration of your birthday. :)

  3. Happy birthday! I'm so bummed I'm missing the celebrations! Seriously, we must plan a dessert day/blogger get together. etc.

  4. Catherine Tate is ten thousand kinds of awesome and so are you. Happy birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday! Meh, who gives a shit about age, it's about how happy you are I reckon. Thus the whole "happy" birthday part.

  6. Happy Birthday! I definitely thought to myself
    "Whoa, wait, hold the phone, she's 30?!" But Hurrah! I hope you have/had a wonderful birthday!

  7. You know, some of us are just meant to be kids at heart forever. :) I know I am going to be one of those. I love my life and I wouldn't change it because of what people think it should be like. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY and enjoy your next 30 years!!

  8. Happy birthday once more, m'dear! Hope it was fabulous and that you partied it up! xo

  9. That "shit together by 30" rule is crap - I am 34 this year and am nowhere near having my shit together. I think the difference between 25, 30, 35 etc is the degree to which you know you don't have your shit together. And the degree to which you are ok with this.


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
