I have never had an issue with age, really. It's always just been a number. But now that the number will technically be closer to 40 than 30, I'm not really digging it!
The details of my life have certainly changed, but I have not. My mind, my sense of humor, my insecurities have all stayed the same as when I was 13! I guess that could be a good or bad thing.
A zest for life - laughter, joy, the basic need to have fun and be entertained knows no age boundaries. The way these are achieved, I suppose, changes. I used to hang out with friends and watch 'Friends'. Now I tweet and blog and watch CNN and Bravo. Is that an oxymoron? Or is it just the times? Who knows?
Hopefully I have matured and gained some knowledge, though that could be questionable. Certainly, I have gained some unwanted wrinkles, stretch marks and weight that make the age thing undeniable. I have fought them with a good fight. I have a bathroom cabinet full of face and eye creams that could rival any day spa. I have gained the knowledge to know that I have wasted a lot of my money on those things!
Blogging is a beautiful thing (unlike me in the red polyester jumpsuit!)! Age is not a boundary. I can alienate and entertain people regardless of age! When I first referred to my "70's" party- I heard from a couple of people that said they weren't even born in the 70's- GULP! My mind immediately assumed they were like 12- because, 1.) I'm not good at math and 2.) I kind of feel like time has stood still.
I hope I am mature enough to understand my limits when it comes to my writing. Blogging has also made me reconsider that. I have a tendency to be too honest. I know that. That won't change, but if you are insulted or throw up a little in your mouth from something I say, you can let me know. I think it's good for me to know and it can help me grow, hopefully not larger or older, just in a metaphoric way!
