Two years and a week...11.26.2013
My twenty-eighth is exactly a week from today... Yikes! I am seriously scared shitless about this! No, not the actual day, but the idea of turning twenty-eight, and it meaning that I am two years away from thirty. I seriously wish I could have Jennifer Garner's mentality of turning thirty in 13 going on 30... Thirty, Flirty & Thriving.... But I don't.
Anyone else ever feel like this?
I feel like I have been on this earth for almost thirty years, and I have nothing to show for it. Not really, but seriously.
Another fun fact... seven years ago, I was planning an awesome 21st Birthday party around this time, and this year... we are not going drinking, we (as in me and the hubsters) are taking Lil Man to the Museum to see Christmas Trees from around the world, finding an awesome downtown Chi-town pizza place, and then having my Mom watch Lil Man so we can go see "Catching Fire."
Wow... things have really changed!
Anyways... What brought all of this on? You don't really have to ask, as I am sure you already know, but it was Facebook. (Holds fist in the air, "Damn you Facebook!!")
I am around six months away from my 10 year high school reunion (if we are actually having one), and as I look at some of my classmates, I am like, Really? what the hell have I done?
Some are doctors, lawyers, have more money than they can imagine, have built houses, are working at their dream job, have traveled to the ends of the earth,... this list can go on and on.
What the hell have I done in the almost 10 years since High School?
-I have been married for a little over four years.
-I have a three year old Lil Man.
-I have a Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice
-I am six months away from my Master's of Science in Criminal Justice.
-I work for a not-for-profit.
Not a very glamorous list. Yes, I am fortunate and very thankful what I do have/have accomplished, but I feel like I have so much more I want to do. Aka... My thirty by thirty list.
Don't get me wrong, I know that I am fortunate to have all of the things above and my good overall general health, but sometimes some things just have the ability to turn me into a mentally emotional train wreck.
But, I have to thank you all for listening to me "just blogging it out" :)
Btw... I just wanted to let you know that Briana's 10 Favorite Things link up, over at Endlessly Beloved, goes live on Monday. Be sure to check it out (since I am one of her sponsors this month) and participate!!!
