So tomorrow I turn 36. I'm not sure how I feel about it. I don't necessarily mind getting older. In fact, there are some benefits to aging.
~ I am no longer expected to keep up with fashion. Shopping at Walmart is normal, not weird.
~ I don't have to tan any longer. The sun spots are blending in and giving the illusion of a tan.
~ I'm still not at fanny pack stage but I can sport a handbag from Payless Shoes.
~ I rarely check my appearance before I go to a mall as I am no longer eye candy for testosterone infused boys.
~ My opinions and/or advise holds "some" value since I have lived 50% of my life now.
~ I have learned that everyone will fail me at some point in my life and I will fail you. I choose mercy over judgment.
~ One good friend is better than a bunch of acquaintances.
~ I have learned that being 21 wasn't the coolest thing ever and being 36 is not the end of the world.
The only thing I haven't figured out is.... am I considered mid-thirties or late-thirties? Not sure if I want the answer to that.
