10957/365 = 30

Thats right, today is my 30th birthday. My 20’s are officially behind me like so many whispered dreams of youth. I have had trouble sleeping the past few days in anticipation of this event, which is really… silly. If our society used a base 8 number system instead of base 10 then I would have another two years before I hit this youth-ending milestone. So my right brain shuns the idea of this arbitrary date having more meaning than any other, but my left brain has never been one to back down from a challenge.

My 30th birthday is ushered in with all the fanfare of going to the DMV. My family is far away in Colorado and I have work on my desk to keep my head on fire for weeks to come. Maybe next year I’ll throw a big party… at Baskin-Robbins.
