Saying Goodbye to the Thirties

This is the last entry I will make as someone in their thirties.

I was trying to think back to when I left the twenties, ten years ago. I remember the singles group throwing a party and telling me that I was over the hill now. I thought that was kind of funny since I certainly didn't feel over this hill.

Not much has changed in ten years, feeling wise anyways. I still feel the same. Although I think loud noise bothers me more now, and I cetainly don't sleep as much as I used to.

I still like the same things, but I don't think that I am as naive as I was when I turned thirty.

Although some things are certainly different.

Ten years ago the Florida Gator Football team had never won a national championship or even an SEC championship. Now they are contenders every year for both. So I have spent the past ten years trying to get used to cheering for a team that actually wins most of its games. That's different.

Ten years ago I was speaking almost daily to varrying sized audiences. That meant tons of preparing talks. Now I can go days without speaking to anyone. That's a big change.

Ten years ago I was very sure of myself, now I'm a little more open to the fact that I don't know it all.

I have more gray hair but still have it all.

What will the next ten years bring?
