    Not Excited

    I would never have predicted it about myself, but I am not very happy about turning 30 in about 3 months.  I am becoming wistful and nostalgic, which is ridiculous because I am only 29! I can't imagine why I am thinking about it so much, but I figured I would be looking...

    I'm 29

    I am going to turn 30 and just the idea that I'm 29 scared me.  I live with my parents (I just can't afford to live on my own but I try to pay for myself).  I want to do something cool for my 30th birthday.  I had thought about going to England but I...

    The Tally

    Ok, where I am is so not where I thought I would be five years ago, which once again just proves that trying to plan for things like this is just silly. At 25 I was engaged, working a steady job and living in NY. Two days away from thirty and I'm a divorced lesbian without a...

    My birthday is tomorrow

    and I'm turning 30 :) Don't know what I should do since I don't really celebrate birthdays. But turning 30 is a big milestone. Looking forward to how things will progress in my life. Hopefully it will be much better than how it was in my 20's :D

    This Is Not Where I Thought I Would Be

    So far from it.  I had plans about wife, family, growing old and happy, being a grandpa.  I'm going to turn 30 and only have my job going for me.  Sadness.

    On Saturday, I turn 30,

    so this is the last night where I will still be in my 20s when I wake up. I am so unhappy about turning 30, but it's obviously out of my control. I want to stay in my 20s! :/

    I Am Turning 30 In 9 Months And Boy I Am Thrilled!!

    I feel like I am living in my own world because, every story I read about "soon to be thirties" is one of fear, dread and uncertainty. I, on the other hand am absolutely ecstatic to be turning 30!! In fact, I can't wait. I am so not wishing to be in my 20s! Perhaps it's how I...

    been “what to do after a break up” , “single at 30″ , “single and happy” and “when to start being a cat lady”. so yeah. I turn 30 in 5 months and the man I have been with for the last 2 years thought I was with for 2 years just wasn’t the man I knew him to be...

    Fifteen Hours and Counting...

    I have had the hardest year. I really have taken this "turning 30" thing hard! I can't say I am not where I thought I would be because I never really made any plans. I have a fantastic husband, a wonderful daughter, and a comfortable life. I am loved by family and...

    Not As I Imagine...

    *sight* I always wanted to be 30! I thought that at this age i will be mature and wise women but i'm nothing like that and still 15 in my head. Very disapointing. I had this great plan of going to Egypt and celebrate my birthday by the Sphinx, then i decided to make a big party...

    In a Few Months

    I am turning 30.... God where did the time go.... Luckily I still feel young and hopeful, and still have youthful looks.... It's scary to think that I am nearing the halfway point of my life instead of still being at the beginning... Life is getting short....

    Not 29 Anymore

    For the longest time, it never bothered me to tell people my age.  I didn't mind being older than most everyone in my class, but then again, that was in high school.  Now, here I am, 6 days away from turning 30 and I'm desperately trying to peddle backwards.  I...

    Mixed Feelings

    Everybody keeps asking me what gifts I want or what I want to do for my 30th birthday in the beginning of June, and I haven't the foggiest idea what to say. Half the time when I think about turning 30 in a matter of weeks (!) it pushes me to the brink of tears. On one hand, I...
