Thirty Before Thirty
As I get closer to the ripe old age of thirty I feel a sense of urgency that I can’t explain. I’m sure that I don’t have to because everyone has, is or will experience this feeling.
Aah the end of my 20s (in about 2 years) will be a relief. Nowadays people don’t seem to take you seriously until then. In the 50s, I would be the older housewife that the new girls on the block would come to advice.
I’d look down at them with my chin lifted and a cigarette tucked in the side of my rouged lips and say something like “Honey, wait til ya my age.”
I am a list maker. I make lists in my sleep. When I discovered the Notes App in the iPhone I nearly passed out. So I am creating a list, not really a bucket list because hopefully I won’t croak when the clock strikes midnight on July 23rd.
Here is a (running) list of 30 countries that I would like to visit and activities that I’d like to do in these locations.
