A strange and mysterious thing has occurred. I never thought it would happen, but Iâ€™m glad Iâ€™m no longer in my twenties. They were a bit of an embarrassment for me, in so many ways, and itâ€™s a relief to be done with them. And so far, the thirties arenâ€™t so bad.
I just wish 31 didnâ€™t sound so old. And now that Iâ€™m starting to get comfortable in my 31-year-old shoes, itâ€™s almost time to trade them in for a 32, leaving me with less than three years to graduate, find a city to settle down in, get a great job and have a daughter. I donâ€™t literally mean my shoes are 31 years old though. Itâ€™s just a metaphor. My shoes are, like, 6 months old.
But all in all, I feel pretty good these days, about being my age and having my kid and my general lot in life. My outlook is on the upswing. I whine a lot, because itâ€™s my habit, but honestly I just need to get over myself. I am lucky, I know this; I could have it 100 times worse than I do. I need one of those funny animated creatures to sit on my shoulder, appearing when the situation warrants, reminding me of my good fortune, because otherwise Iâ€™m too wrapped up in what I donâ€™t have or what Iâ€™m not doing, creating misery where it doesnâ€™t need to be.
Our circumstances are just thatâ€”circumstances. I have choices and opportunities and intelligence and Iâ€™m letting the wrong things get me down and affect my life. Ry needs a better mother than that!
Warm weather is almost upon us and I know things will be better in the spring. Okay, technically it IS spring, but I wonâ€™t consider it official until I can pack up my stupid winter coat for the year.
Letâ€™s all be thankful for trader joeâ€™s jasmine green tea, the most delicious beverage in creation. Well, it might not be the most delicious beverage EVER, but itâ€™s certainly one of my favorites and definitely in the top 5 of Most Delicious Beverages Ever. Sitting right next to trader joe’s jasmine green tea on that list is ito en’s jasmine green tea. Now you might say that maybe I just like jasmine green tea in general but you’d be wrong, because I’ve tried other brands of jasmine green tea and none are as good as these two.
All I need now is a broadband internet connection and a pedicure and things will be swell.
