until I turn thirty.
I have to keep checking the math in my head. Wait, thirty? Are you sure? Didn't I just turn 21?
Didn't I just turn 3 and get an awesome Rainbow Brite tricycle?
I'm not really stressing it, though. I don't feel that old and everyone says their thirties are better than their twenties, anyway.
Before I reach this milestone though, there are some things I would like to check off my bucket list. Things I have been talking about or thinking about and haven't done yet. Turning 30 gives me a date to countdown to. Like I said yesterday, I work better under pressure, so instead of giving myself the rest of my life to complete these, I'm hoping that giving myself a cutoff makes me more productive.
