The Tiny Heart: 29 for the 2nd Time

7.22.2013

29 for the 2nd Time


Today is my birthday! I've decided I'm turning 29 again, since 30 seems like a good age to no longer keep count. I've seen a lot of these 30 before 30 lists going around and I think it's kind of funny. It's as if life stops at 30, so you better get everything done before then. Have I accomplished all that I've wanted to? Absolutely not. And I'm totally okay with that. There's plenty of things I have accomplished by this age, like getting my master's degree, living in the greatest city in the world (NYC), and being able to sign LSW (Licensed Social Worker) after my name, just to name a few.   

I'm going out to dinner tonight to celebrate, so you'll have to wait until later this week to see what I wore! Yesterday I had a little pre-birthday lunch with my family at the Mill Basin Deli in Brooklyn.
I feasted on a corned beef sandwich, potato knish, cole slaw, macaroni salad, and sour pickles. I'm still stuffed!

  14. Happy Birthday Sharon!!! I was totally the same way when I turned 30, I called it the "1st anniversary of me turning 29". Although now that I'm 31 it doesn't seem so bad. Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic day!!

  15. Happy birthday! I did the same thing, called it my 2nd 29th, but honestly 30 is not too shabby! Enjoy it! :)

  19. Totally agree with the "by this birthday bucket list" thing. Life is an ongoing journey! Setting deadlines can help with goals, but so often I think it can impose unnecessary stress and keep people rigidly inflexible about taking life as it comes. A very happy birthday to you! Hope it's a lovely time!

  26. Happy Birthday! I think that the lists exist because 30 is such a round number.

  33. My 30th was on the 16th, so welcome to the club ha ha. I'm doing a 30 while I'm 30 list, but it's mostly to help me get some things done that I've been procrastinating on. Isn't it funny how your brain does stuff like that? Happy birthday!

  34. My 30th is in September and I'm actually kind of excited for it. My 20s have been full of drama and learning about myself. I'm hoping my 30s will bring understanding and stability.

    And if all else fails, there's always wine.

    Happy birthday friend!

  44. Happy Birthday Sharon!!! You still look 20, so you are definitely doing something right. My mom teaches social work on the college level. I didn't know you were a social worker. That is awesome. Hope you had an awesome time this evening. Enjoy ALL month long! :D I'm so glad to know you through blogging.

  45. Happy happy happy happy birthday!! I kind of love what you said about the 30 before 30 being slightly ridiculous...makes me feel a little better about having turned 29 a few times now and not even getting around to making a list ;) And that knish!? Jealousy right there.

  54. Happy Belated birthday girl! I totally laughed at "as if life stops at 30" I too have a 30 before 30 list and I love it, probably make one for 40 haha. ps. I didn't know you were a LSW. that's awesome.. I'm currently studying for the national exam for marriage and family therapist, so its great when I see other bloggers in the same field as me. Hope your birthday was awesome! xoxo!
