I turn 30 in 12 months.
But it doesn’t feel like I’m turning 29 today. More like I’m turning a‑year-away-from-30. 29 has always been so inconsequential. One step on a staircase before setting foot on a landing.
The thing is, I’m not sure what’s supposed to happen when hit 30. I expect something big, but I don’t know what exactly. Like I have yet to open my eyes to something. Maybe because 30 has always been adult territory in my mind, not 18.
So if I still feel like I haven’t grown up yet, is something going to happen in this year? Something to make me feel like an adult by the time November 13 hits in 2010?
I turn 30 in 12 months, and I don’t know what to expect.
