That’s a picture of me on the calendar, yes. I got a personalized one from Vistaprint. It’s very nice. You can choose a template from almost 50 different ones, then upload a picture for each month of the year plus one more for the cover, and you can even put in your own title.
My title sounds familiar because it came from the movie 13 Going on 30 and I chose it because 2012 is the year I turn the big 3-0. Ugh. Turning 30 is a big deal, maybe because it’s a completely new digit.
When you’re in your twenties you’re considered young, but thirties? Nope. That’s why turning thirty is a scary thought, one that freaks me out in a “I must put on tons of age-defying products on my face now panic panic panic” and “Where did my youth go???? Why yesterday I was just joining the workforce!!!!” and “What am I doing with my life???” and “Omigod I’m 30 and I am still not on the right path!!!” kind of way.
I’m not kidding when I say that it seriously makes me panic at times, keeps me up some nights, adding to the age lines that I am so afraid of. (OMG is that a wrinkle???) It’s funny because I never felt that I was getting older till the moment I turned 29 when I realized I was one year away from being OLD. That’s when it hit me.
I have four months to go before the end of the world… the twenties world. >.<
