I’m doing something crazy, and I have zero time for it. But I’m doing it anyway.
I’m turning 30 on August 26th. That’s right, the road to thirty is finally upon me. I may be the most excited person on the planet about it, because my 20s were the most colorful mess ever. For awhile I considered doing a long post about all of the things I’ve learned over the past decade. Battles. Losses. Stupid ideas. That sort of thing.
But then I thought, fuck that, there’s too much to say.
So I decided to spread it out over 30 blog posts, and I’m going to publish one blog post each day in the final 30 days before I turn 30.
I know, it sounds like an incredible amount of words. But I have this incredible urge to get everything from my 20s out of me. Like WAY out of me. And not in an ‘omg check out my life’ kind of way. This won’t be thirty diary entries to clog up your inbox.
This will be nuggets of wisdom I’ve learned along the way. People who’ve shaped me. People who’ve scared me. Lessons learned. Fears conquered. Battles won. This will be a lot of brain power, when my wattage is already kind of at an all-time low, after trying to soak up every bit of math and science in this new book I’m reading called The Martian. (EXCELLENT, BTW).
This will be stuff that you can remember on your journey if you’re in your twenties. In fact, this will be stuff you’ll probably highly resonate with if you’re in your twenties. And more importantly, I hope this will be stuff you’ll fondly remember if you aren’t in your twenties. (If you aren’t in your twenties, I’ll bet you’re glad that’s over. I sure am!).
All this will start 30 days before I turn 30, which by my calculations, is July 28th. And you’ll need to be a subscriber to read the posts as they get published (see subscriber form in sidebar!)
I have 7 posts written so far, so I’ll need 23 more posts by July 28th, which gives me 6 days to get it all done. But I guess they don’t all need to be done before I send the first few out. But they should for the most part be set up and ready to go.
I’m excited. Having just knocked out 3 posts before working on this one, I’m feeling at my utmost productive. And I’m excited to share with you some of the things I’m super glad to put behind me.
So if you’re interested in reading all of these as they get published, be sure to subscribe in the upper right hand corner of this site so you can be notified for each new post on this 30-day journey. I feel raw and cut open just thinking about all of the stuff I’m going to spill.
I can’t wait. I feel like 30 is a big, blue, suede hat you finally get to wear to the race track. Your shiny, crowning adulthood comes to a blazing start. At least that’s what it feels like. And while I’ve enjoyed this past decade, I feel like it was merely child’s play, and this next decade is going to offer far more lessons than I ever dreamed possible. And I’m so happy and ready to be on my way!
