Thirty so far
by Nicole Lee
While I’ve been restraining my personal blogging efforts of late (due to my increasingly public profile), I figure a brief navel-gazing stint wouldn’t hurt. This is my “personal blog” after all. So indulge me, if you will, in a personal retrospective of this year thus far.
It’s only September and I already feel like 2009 has been the year of great personal improvement. I made new friends and met some very cool people. I learned to drive and earned my driver’s license. I learned to ride a bicycle for the first time ever. I expanded my knitting skills. On a rather nerdy and fulfilling note, I somehow found myself as a guest on two of my favorite podcasts. I also somehow managed to lose almost 20 pounds through a series of diet and exercise (I do have more to go though). You know how some people have their “life list”, the list of things they want to do before they die? I feel like I’ve knocked about 50% of that list in this one year. It feels that amazing.
And yes, I realize it’s only September, and things may go all pear-shaped before the end of the year. But for now, I’m seriously having a ball. If this is how turning 30 feels like, then all I can say about the rest of my thirties is: Bring. It. On.
That concludes my brief personal-blogging effort. You may now return to your regular Internet programming.
