Older and Hopefully Wiser

It’s that time of the year again. One more year until the big three-oh. It’s kind of crazy to realize that ten years ago, I had just finished the last three finals of my undergraduate career, I had just had my first kiss, and was…busy shooting my mouth off on the internets about commercial lunar exploration. Ok, so not everything changes.

One more year until I’m officially old though.

The following two tabs change content below.

    So… you have still just had your first kiss?

    PS: The “big 30” isn’t that big of a deal unless you make it that big of a deal.

    No, I was referring to the “shoot my mouth of on the internets” bit when I said stuff doesn’t change.

    And the “big 30” is a big deal because I made it a big deal for Tiff when she turned 30 last year… 🙂

  6. Adam Greenwood says:

    So you’re saying you’re 29? Likely story. 🙂

    Many happy returns.

  7. Douglas says:

    You aren’t officially old when you turn 31. You just no longer have the excuse of “I was a dumb kid” when you hit 31.

    You are officially old when you are 60.

    And. . . .YOU’re only 30!?

    I’ll be over here hating myself.

  8. Jonathan Goff Jonathan Goff says:

    Actually, only turned 29 on Saturday. Have another year until the big (or at least medium) 3-0. 🙂

    Congratulations Jonathan! You’ll find me in the same corner of the room as Douglas talking about quality canes and walking chairs ^_^
