Turning 30: Top 10 Freakout Topics

Sometime this year I will turn 30. In preparation for this event, I have started to freak out. Here is a highlight reel:
  1. I have a mortgage.
  2. I am reading Gardening for Dummies.
  3. My cat, who I adopted the same day I got my wisdom teeth out, is 58 in cat years.
  4. I am married.
  5. It's too late to become a gymnast or a wunderkind of any type.
  6. I am closer to too old to have kids than to too young to have kids.
  7. I have started to receive Lands End catalogs.
  8. I'm a lawyer, and I no longer feel like an imposter when I say "I'm a lawyer."
  9. If I were a character in Logan's Run I would [SPOILER] be killed soon.
  10. What do I want to be when I grow up?
Just thought I'd share.

Dear T&A Lady,

Not to worry. Remember, genetics has a lot to do with how we age.

Oh, by the way, where did you find that picture of my grandmother?

Love, Mom

At least we know I won't lose my biting sense of humor, right, Mom?

P.S. I apologize if that is actually a picture of your grandmother.

I have begun having similar turning 30 freakout feelings, and the thought of being a married lawyer with a mortgage made me feel a small sense of relief that at least I don't have THAT to worry about. Thinking about it more, I thought it may work in reverse, so this one's for you, T&A Lady!

1. I live in a shack I don't own that's poorly insulated and has no running water.
2. I just quit the most dependable job I've ever had in order to start a part-time computing business with friends of mine.
3. My boyfriend of 5.5 years is 43 years old and is also only partially employed (has been for years).
4. Our 1979 Chevy Luv pick-up just broke down. For good this time (I think). Plus, the tail pipe just fell off my Subaru.
5. What do I want to be when I grow up?

Feel better? I'll drink to that!

Your Alaska Friend
