Today I turn 29, which is weird because I could swear I was 22 just last year. Sigh. It’s hard to believe that this year will be the last hurrah of my 20’s, but don’t count me out as an old timer just yet – I can still go mechanical bull riding and unlimited mimosa brunching with the best of the young’uns!

In addition to being my birfday, today is also the last day I’ll be working at my current company. After nearly 5 years here, the thought of moving on is a little scary and overwhelming, but we’ve all got to push ourselves out of the nest sometime. Here’s hoping that I’ll find a new home at Glamour.com when I start on Monday :-)

    a very merry birthday to you!! how about that, we are the same age. it’s so nice to find other almost 30-somethings in blogland. it’s amazing to grow up isn’t it? in so many ways i feel like my young college self, and in other ways, i feel myself becoming a real adult {what? you expect me to stay in a crappy hotel? but i’m a grown up now. i’ve seen the light!}. i hope your last year of your 20’s is the best one of them all! and good luck on the next phase in your career world too, whatever that may end up being.
