    Just Turned 35

    It hadn't really hit me that I was in my 30s until last year which seems to be a delayed reaction since I'm now 35... I must have been distracted by my ex-boyfriend along with life in general at the time in the prior years. There's no feeling of regret nor sadness because I'm...

    Something Odd About Those 3's

    There's something "odd" about those 3's in our life span!  It's an odd number at odd times in our life. Let me explain. Age 3... An inbetween toddler year. Noone made a big to-do, because they went all out on the first or second birthday, and they're planning for your...

    How Did I Get to Be 34!!??

    Wow life is life and we all get older, but for some reason after I turned 34 in March I have this underlying feeling of being so old, so out of the loop. I know that I better embrace this, right, obviously there isn't a damn thing I can do about it. I am not saying I want to be...

    33 And Feeling Crazy

    How old is too old to go a little crazy?  I'll turn 33 next year, and for some reason recently I've had this desire to just go nuts. Things I want to do: 1). Go to a rave, do some shrooms, dance, dance, dance and not care. 2). Get a tattoo.  Pierce some things. ...

    Ah, 31...

    On my 30th birthday, my daughter said "Oh my GOD Mom!!! You're middle aged!" But I don't feel middle aged. I feel the same as I always have. I don't mind being in my 30's.

    Having recently turned 31,

    and by "recently," I mean 5 months ago. I find myself still telling people I'm 30. I think I might stick with that until I'm 40. Maybe I'll be honest and mumble, "Something" after I say I'm 30, but what's the point? No one listens past the thirty part anyway. :)

    36 to Be Exact

    I have to say everything changes when you hit 30.  Around 33 or 34 I started gaining weight.  I've always been a size 5/6 now I'm a 7/8.  I've always been a little over 100lbs now I'm 130.  I have aches and ailments that I never imagined.  Life is funny.

    Don't Let Your Thirties Pass You By Like Your Twenties Might Have!

    When I finished Uni at the age of 22, I felt that I suddenly had to become a responsible grown up. Yeah, still go clubbing and get merry but only at weekends. No more being silly, I felt that I had to act more maturely because that is how my parents had been whilst I was at home...

    I just turned 30 almost 4 months ago.

    Does anyone have an idea on what thirties is like? How should one act or behave in their thirties? Thirties actually the new twenties? Thirty is the beginning of an era. But at times I found myself acting or behaving like 25. I often find myself saying to myself, "This is not...

    It's really weird to realize I am in my

    thirties. Most people think I fall between 23 and 27. I quit smoking a few months ago, and I'd still be carded. I think what I can relate to, is, that we all age physically - and at different rates, for different reasons. The mind and spirit, however, are timeless - and they...

    The Last Few Days Of 35

    I am not who I'd hoped to be at 35 - I have nothing I wanted or dreamed of..   I feel older, creakier, aged but I also feel wiser, confident about my work and for the most part I feel free.   I just wish I had more than another year of single, childless and...

    I'm 31

    Briefs in my teens and twenties. Then boxers till late thirties and since trunks or hipsters. They tend to keep things in place if you know what I mean.
