I will soon be trading the ‘2’ in front of my age for a ‘3’, and this will be my companion for a whole decade (unless the agreement I made with the man/woman upstairs kicks in). Personally turning 30 is pretty important to me. I don’t know exactly why, but I feel like it is going to prove to be a great period for me, it’s like starting high school but this time I know who I am, and I don’t care if the cool kids think I’m weird, or quiet, or ugly. I am going into thirty with a good head on my shoulders, and acceptance with who I am.
I would like to share some of the things I have learned in my 20’s.
- Having the one person you like not like you back is not the end of the world.
This of course didn’t happen till maybe my late twenties. I would find myself crying or not eating trying to spend all hours of the day figuring out why he didn’t like me back. Now, not so much. My friend just called me cynical. I think he is too sensitive.
- Wine is always a good idea, alone or not, I will always have wine. It helps me clear my head… really.
It also got my through the one time I was stood up, stood up for my birthday from the Italian in Chicago. Two bottles of wine and I was clear headed enough to know that I still had my friends and I looked damn good in that black dress.
- As sweet as your girlfriends are, I learned that it helps them to look better than you in social situations. I learned quickly after leaving the house with what they said was not a bad choice of wardrobe for the night/beach/day/club etc. By the time I was 26 I new better… yeah, I am kinda slow, and tend to believe what other girls tell me.
- We all have learned how to pull friends out of tricky situation whey they are drunk. My early twenties was spent getting my friends from the bar/bar bathroom/streets/house parties etc without letting on how drunk they were.
- I have learned that if I don’t exercise regularly I will turn into a tamale… I can’t afford to have that happen yet since I haven’t really had a relationship in my life (it’s in my bucket list, don’t worry). So after 28, I noticed things were harder to keep in place, ahem.
But in all honesty the best things I have learned in my twenties happened later like when I turned 28. Here are some of the things I did learn.
Happy June 1st! I wish you all the best in this excruciatingly hot month (at least here in Miami, I think the humidity is trying to suffocate us)
