Hey, so guess what?Â Itâ€™s my birthday.Â And not just a regular olâ€™ birthday. Itâ€™s my 30th birthday.Â Wow, I canâ€™t believe I just typed that. Not to seem clichÃ©d, but where did my twenties go?Â Right now, they seem like a blurry mix of Mikeâ€™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 donâ€™t think Iâ€™m going to be one of those people who sits home alone tonight and drowns my sorrows in ice cream.Â 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 Iâ€™m fairly certain the next time I go shopping at H&M, Iâ€™ll have to buy a medium. But all in I really donâ€™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 hadnâ€™t really thought about getting older, but what I did start thinking about is how the people around me are getting older. Iâ€™m lucky enough to still have my two grannies, my parents, my family.Â When it comes to a full life, Iâ€™ve been pretty lucky.
Earlier this year, I was hit with a dose of reality when one of my friends died in an accident. Â He was about to turn 28 years old and lived more than anyone Iâ€™ll likely ever meet.Â Helping his friends and family, as we grieved together, has certainly given today perspective.Â And while Iâ€™d give anything to have him back,Â the lessons I learned over the past four months will make today and every day of the next decade ones that Iâ€™ll never forget.
Okay, so thatâ€™s my birthday post.Â I probably should have included a few jokes about Danger Bay or Degrassi, but thereâ€™s always time for that. As always, Iâ€™m forever grateful that you choose to swing by this blog every now and again, itâ€™s fun to talk about all things Canadian entertainment with you guys and you know what, thatâ€™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.
