Today is my birthday and I am entering a new decade, my 30s.  I wish I could say it felt different, better, worse, anything, but it feels the same as 29.  Only saying 30 makes me feel like I am a full blown adult, 30 sounds more grown-up.  At 29 I could hide under the 20s umbrella and feel like I still could be recklessly stupid, although I don't know if I ever have been.  At 30 it seems more official, although the only thing more official today than yesterday is that my age starts with a 3 instead of a 2.


  1. Happy birthday, Vanessa! I felt the same way when I hit 70....not much different than when I hit 60. I have a feeling reaching 80 won't be quite the same though (if I make it that far). :-)
