Hey, so guess what? It’s my birthday. And not just a regular ol’ birthday. It’s my 30th birthday. Wow, I can’t believe I just typed that. Not to seem clichéd, but where did my twenties go? Right now, they seem like a blurry mix of Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Now CD compilations.
So, now, I’m thirty.
You know, if I think about it, things are pretty good right now. So I don’t think I’m going to be one of those people who sits home alone tonight and drowns my sorrows in ice cream. That being said, I am having a Deep and Delicious Cake-themed party on Saturday, but at least that will be with friends.
I could be bummed that the sales clerk at the Bay told me I should start using age fitness moisturizer, or that I’m fairly certain the next time I go shopping at H&M, I’ll have to buy a medium. But all in I really don’t have anything to be worried about.
I got asked the other day, if I was feeling anxious about getting older, you know, hitting my dirty thirties. To be honest, I hadn’t really thought about getting older, but what I did start thinking about is how the people around me are getting older. I’m lucky enough to still have my two grannies, my parents, my family. When it comes to a full life, I’ve been pretty lucky.
Earlier this year, I was hit with a dose of reality when one of my friends died in an accident. He was about to turn 28 years old and lived more than anyone I’ll likely ever meet. Helping his friends and family, as we grieved together, has certainly given today perspective. And while I’d give anything to have him back, the lessons I learned over the past four months will make today and every day of the next decade ones that I’ll never forget.
Okay, so that’s my birthday post. I probably should have included a few jokes about Danger Bay or Degrassi, but there’s always time for that. As always, I’m forever grateful that you choose to swing by this blog every now and again, it’s fun to talk about all things Canadian entertainment with you guys and you know what, that’s a pretty cool birthday gift, no matter what age.
Alright, I can’t let you go without playing some of my favourite songs of all time! They are some oldies, but goodies.
