Say Hello to the Dirty 30s

At the end of May I turned the big 3-0. I’m 30, guys. My twenties are dead.

By now I’ve got a few weeks of experience under my belt, which obviously means I’m ready to make judgements on this new era of my life. And so, without further ado, here are some thoughts about being 30.

Welcome Back

I decided to give myself a month. A month to settle in; get familiar with our new home, my new job and the people around me. A month seemed like a good amount of time to get my bearings before sitting down to write anything about my new life here in Jasper.

And Now, An Announcement

I didn’t mean to go A.W.O.L. but I’ve been a little distracted lately and I’ve alway had such a hard time writing about anything else when there’s only one thing really dominating my thoughts (and this is especially true when I kind of have to keep that one thing a secret for a little while.)

But the time for needing to keep things on the down-low has passed and, seeing as people are already finding out “through the grapevine”, now is as good a time as any to come clean…

Busy and restless all at the same time

You probably know the feeling – the hush and feeling of purposelessness after the chaos of some kind of event. You spend so much time preparing for something that once it’s over you just don’t know what to do with yourself. And it’s not like I don’t have a ton of things that I could be doing but, I don’t know… It’s just a weird feeling.
