It’s that time already….where I hit yet another significant milestone in life. This time, it’s the big 3.0. and the celebrations kicked off over the weekend with our closets friends over to ring in this mighty big birthday! I must say that a year ago, the thought of turning 30 daunted me – I simply could not accept that I was leaving my 20s and moving onto the next age bracket! For some reason, I managed to let myself think that I was about to enter the mundane ‘grown up’ phase of commitments and responsibilities and leave all the fun behind – despite people’s best efforts to convince me that the 30s was the new 20s! Thankfully in due course, I began to realise that while there are indeed ‘grown up’ things to consider there was in fact a world of opportunities waiting for me, so I just need to fully embrace this milestone and look forward to a new and exciting chapter in life! The PhD will soon come to an end and with that comes the exciting prospect of career/business opportunities, not to mention our long-awaited plans of doing a great american adventure………and who knows what else is to come my way. And if this weekend was anything to go by then I know there’s still plenty of fun and madness to come! :) Besides I’ve also convinced myself that I’m STILL 21……. with 9 years of experience! ;) Happy days!
