Damn, I’m 30

Where does the time go? Seems like yesterday I was getting up at the crack of dawn to throw on some clothes, shove a bowl of cold cereal down my throat, and make it out to the bus stop in time to catch a ride to grade school.

All these years later, little has changed. I get up a little later, but still throw on the clothes and eat that bowl of frosty grain and milk.

I face this day with a sense of genuine gratitude. I’ve had many acquaintances over the course of 30 years, but only a few true friends. I’ll see several of them later today. Looking forward to that and getting to spend the later part of the evening with my lovely fiancĂ©e.

I don’t normally publicly acknowledge this day, but it’s the big 3-0 so what the hell…….Happy Birthday to me!
