Thirty Years of Awesome

Posted on

I was a late bloomer, I have been learning my generation backwards, if that makes any sense. I spent a lot of time in my youth trying to figure out which end was up, forget knowing what everyone else was doing. I was clueless, and no not the like fucking movie. However, what I can say is that our generation was smart, had good taste and while very needy, emotional and prone to whining, overall we’re a pretty smart and awesome bunch.

The following information is not given out so that you can make fun, so stfu! I used to really enjoy country music, so much so that I listened to virtually nothing else with a few exceptions… those exceptions I made I now see as my brain’s way of telling me there was more to music than a steel guitar and nasal voice. πŸ˜‰

There’s speed metal and Rage Against The Machine and Sublime and Mos Def and John Legend and Blues Traveler and Live and Incubus and oh hell I could go on and on. I have always had a deep love of music, no talent, but much appreciation. I just had it on the wrong channel, country music never fulfilled my need for expression and oddly music now does that in a profound way for me. The other cool thing is that our generation produces today some of the most awesome entertainment ever created.

For example, Robot Chicken:

You cannot tell me you don’t love it! If you don’t um…do you like country music too? Just kidding, I still like George Strait πŸ˜‰

One thing I’ve never had an appreciation for was drama. Never once did I enjoy a bit of it unless it was in a movie. Some people have a huge flair for drama and those are the kind of people I try to avoid like the plague…THE PLAGUE!

In about a month I turn 31…several years ago I heard a song by Tim McGraw…STFU!.. called My Next Thirty Years…good stuff. Have a seat and enjoy:

Hug a 30 year old today! Have a good Friday everybody, do something fun this weekend and tell me about it!

  1. I finally got around to reading this, and even put on the headphones and listened to Tim McGraw (yum…for looks AND that voice!). Awesome song. You know, I didn’t worry about turning 30 at all, in fact I always say I can’t wait for 60! Every year I get older, and some things get more complicated, but most things get a little easier to understand. Also, I’ve discovered there’s no need to be constantly searching for understanding on some things…I am never going to understand men. However, I understand when he’s got that angry look that it’s a bad idea to criticize him, and I understand that starting a talk about money is a bad idea the moment he finally sits down and takes his boots off after 10 hours of work. πŸ™‚ It’s become far less common for me to be mumbling the serenity prayer constantly just to make it through the day. I feel like I’ve finally found my niche in life. My 20s sucked a LOT. Man, I am so excited to be in my 30s!

  2. I was never one of those girls terrified of turning 30 but I never realized I’d love it so much. I feel like I got rid of all the hard stuff back in my 20’s..marriage, divorce, betrayal, etc. In fact, I think at this point in my life, I’m more “ME” than I ever have been before. I’ve come into my own. I’m confident. I’m capable. I know what I want and what I deserve in life. I’ll turn 31 in 3 months and I can’t wait to see what it holds in store.
