On turning 29

I turn 29 today, one year till I turn 30. I didn’t think I’d be one to care that much about ages, but this year I’m getting a bit introspective, which I suppose is natural with a milestone birthday a year away.

Most of my college friends seem to be settled in careers and/or settling with partners. I’m not doing any of these things and I know that these days it’s common for 30-somethings to still be in transition, but I guess I grew up having certain expectations for my age. I know I have accomplished quite a bit, but I still don’t see it as enough.

Sigh, I will stop at there. Next weekend, if I don’t have to work, I was thinking of having a Sex & The City marathon. I did just get the last part of season 6 from Amazon. I think watching that will help me.

In tribute, here’s an episode of Friends that’s appropriate for this morning…it’s where they all recall their 30th birthday.
