It's Official!

This morning at 8:40 and 59 seconds, it was my very last moment and second in time in my twenties!!! Hmmm, how bad can it be? A couple people told me that I should now officially stop counting and claim and profess to be 25 for at least 5 more years. There are others who tell me that I should embrace it and embark upon my new decade with my head held high. I don't know yet...I guess you can ask me after free drinks for ladies tonight from 9-11 p.m....I am so there!!!

In comments...did/will your 30th birthday depress you?

30 was very difficult for some reason. I'm over it now.

Tera said...

Roadchick~Welcome to P&P!!!! Glad that you got over it...I'm hoping it won't be too bad!

M. Robert Turnage said...

Happy Birthday!

I got married when I turned 30, so it was a great time for me.

Kofi said...

I'll tell you when I get there. I'm not sure how I'll feel about it just yet.

NoRegrets said...

Happy birthday to you!!!!!

30 was not at all depressing because I was not IN my 30's. 31 was worse. But, I must say, 30's are great. Oops, I meant were. sigh.

NoRegrets said...

ps, here's wishing you no more reasons to fake... :-)

Tera said...

MrT~Thanks! Wow! I guess it was good for you!

Kofi~I'll stay tuned!

NoR~Thank you! You can be IN your 30's all you want in your mind...you go right ahead, they say age ain't nothin' but a numba!

P.S. LMAO!

Gyuss Baaltar said...

Famous people who are or were at one time in their 30s.

Gary Coleman

Beethoven

The cast of Friends

Demi Moore

Benji (in dog years, of course)

Emmanuel Lewis

Bill Gates

So you are in good company!

Tera said...

Gyuss~I guess so if the ages 27-34 qualify them as being "old!"

Tera said...

MrT~Hmmm...interesting point? I won't even ASK about the methods involved in making your choices!

M. Robert Turnage said...

I just went to my MySpace friends and looked at their birthdays.

Tera said...

MrT~You amuse me...deeply!

heather said...

got my license, had a baby and got married all when i was 30.

i had other things on my mind.

to tell the truth i just don't make that big a deal about them. once you're legal to drink the only thing to look forward enough is retirement. (age wise anyway)


and once again.
happy birthday

Tera said...

Heather whoa! That was a monumental year for you!!! Thanks to you again for the birthday wishes! :)

Churlita said...

It's not letting me comment. Let's see if it works now.

I'm in my 40's and as far as I'm concerned, life gets better every year...But I'm really immature, so maybe it's different for more responsible people.

Tera said...

Churlita~I certain hope life gets better, I'm still not married, I'm broke as hell, and I am not a homeowner yet!

Gyuss Baaltar said...

Tera, 34 is perfect. You know what I'm saying?

M. Robert Turnage said...

Guyuss, despite what you tell yourself, your waist is not 34 inches. Puh-leese.

Tera said...

Gyuss~I hear you loud and clear!

MrT~You're a riot! Hmmm, are you guys going to have a fight?

NoRegrets said...

I thought 34 was his shoe size.

M. Robert Turnage said...

I keeed. I keeed. I don't want to start a fight with the G-Boy becausee can push me out of a plane whenever he wants.

Tera said...

Torrance~Gracias my Brotha!

Nance~Why yes indeed it was! Thanks!

Susan said...

Happy belated b-day, my dear. I was out of town drinking on your birthday!

I'm not so worried about my 30s. I really want to get out of my 20s. I must escape this quarterlife crisis!

Tera said...

Susan~I totally understand my friend! LOL!

Tha BossMack TopSoil said...

Tha only difference you may notice, is tha need to take vitamins to maintain your energy level.

Scott said...

Not even my fortieth depressed me, and neither will my fiftieth. Of course I'm a man baby--YEAH!

Tera said...

Bossmiggity~Somehow, that shit happened 3 years ago!

Scott~Welcome to P&P! You go 'head then wit yo bad ass!

Marcus LANGFORD said...

Thirty is the new 21 as far as I am concerned. I will be 30 years old in January and I am looking forward to it; I mean we've gotta get older. Fortunately for some of us [like me], we never do look as old as we are, so I can hold on to "24 or 25 years old" for a few more years :-]

On my 30th I was surrounded by a schoolful of people who had come out to celebrate someone else's 30th birthday. They showered him with love, affection, appreciation for all that he had done for their children (he was the youth pastor). His wife lauded him, his twin girls each kissed a cheek, and his parents beamed proudly. I hid in the shadows praying for death. It did not come.

I spent my 40th birthday, and I do mean the whole day, in the welfare office trying not to get evicted. I got evicted anyway.

Hmmm...where was I going with this?

Oh, yeah.. Happy Birthday!! Things could be a hell of a lot worse!*


*these situations are true, but the names have been changed to protect the lives of the innocent

Tera said...

Marcus~Welcome! It looks like you sure have a positive outlook on things, and when I think about it, I don't look as old as I feel, so I guess I should be grateful :-)

Alan~Oh dear! I just don't know what to say here exept I guess you're right! BTW I'm glad that death didn't come :-)
