Almost There but Not Quite Yet

June 9, 2004


Forced again to come up with something to bring this to an end. To put an end to three years that have passed me by with lightning speed. But here, I have made progress and have spent my time, for the most part, how I wanted.

My face grows character as my 20s come to an inevitable end. Three more years and the #30 will decorate my birthday cake. It blows my mind. How does that happen? But here I am in my late twenties questioning my own mortality.

In a society obsessed with youth, it is not surprising that I find myself fretting over every new permanent line I see invade my face. Women have it worse than men, and I hate to think of how I will handle turning 40.

At least I have been where I said I’d go, and although I took it at a slow pace, college is almost in my rear view mirror.
