The Dirty Thrities

Well I have crossed over. My youth is complete. In other words I am now the big 3-0. To be honest I have not been taking it well. I have little to no know desire to be in my 30s. By any reasonable standard I am doing quite well in life. I have a beautiful wife, a nice home and a steady job but that still doesn't mean I have to enjoy getting older. I was in my old neighborhood recently and drove passed my old high school and it occurred to me that it had been over 11 years since i was a student there and that no current student would have any idea who the hell I was. I was a big deal there but now it been over a decade.

We kept it fairly low key for the big day. Since it was good Friday i didn't have to work. We had great weather so Nadeene and I went for a long walk and we went to dinner in a local restaurant later in the evening. We are also going to a Raptors game later this week which should be good.

I am still the youngest member of my immediate team at work and they all advised me on how getting older is not a big deal. I think they are either lying to themselves or just trying to cheer me up. In life you should probably fight the fights you can win and the race against time is not a race you can win but i am going to give it a shot. I intend to eat healthy and exercise and try to keep my body as young looking as i can for as long as I can.
