    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...

    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...

    For the last 4 days my google searches have

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
