I totally approve of today. I woke up this morning at around 8am, got a full home weights session done, ran a 5k around the neighborhood, and all before popping into the studio for work. After a quick session, I met Zliten for a yummy salad bar lunch (during which I treated myself to not only a slice of pizza but ice cream with caramel AND nuts) and now am back at work for a bit. After work, there will be out to dinner somewhere (haven’t decided where yet, maybe vietnamese-not-pho, maybe somewhere else), some intriguing presents in brown bags waiting for me to open.
30 somehow doesn’t feel much different than 29. Actually, I feel pretty much badass today and if I’m lucky, I’ve got 2/3 or more of my life left to go. I have a wonderful fiance, a great house that we own (ok, the bank owns most of it, technically, but we’re working on it), a super awesome group of friends, and even though I bitch about it sometimes, a pretty damn decent job working on a title that is actually doing well in this horrible economy and able to bring in the bacon to keep us living pretty much the same quality of life we are used to while the start up thing…well, finishes starting up!
Oh yeah. And I’m about 40 lbs lighter than I was when I turned 20. And I’m 110 lbs lighter than I was when I turned 27. Can’t forget that. I looked at my silhoutte while running today and thought “If that’s how 30 looks, bring it on, world!”. I then though, “If I could get my ass up and run every morning, maybe I’d make the world explode from the sheer power of my mind’s positive thinking”. Oh well, it’s my birthday, I’ll make the world explode if I want to.
I was going to get all deep and introspective up in here, but I realized that I just feel pretty bad ass today and am going to go spread sunshine and rainbows all over the office. Cheers everyone, and happy day! 🙂
