On Turning 30


Happy Birthday, John! from Pirata718 on Vimeo.

December 22 came and went, and now I’m 30 years old. I can’t even comprehend that statistic. Growing up, I figured that I would have accomplished so much by that age – it seemed so far away. Today, 40 seems ridiculously far away. There is probably some kind of lesson in that.

On Turning 28

On this day, in 1977, I was born. At 5 lbs. 6 oz., I was six weeks early, and spent my first Christmas in hospital.

I used to think that 28 sounded so old – time for marrying, house-buying, and thinking about kiddos. Now that this day has come, those things seem as far away as they did when I was 20. I’m always amazed that people I know are doing these things now… my younger cousing Maggie has 3 kids, and she’s 2 years younger than me. My first real girlfriend from High School is married. And, it seems like every weblogger that I read is either getting engaged, married, or having a child.

So, I’m 28. I may have been in a hurry to come into this world, but hopefully I’ve learned to slow down a bit. I’ve got a great girl, good friends, and a lot to be thankful for… those other “grown-up” things will fall into place, in time.

Thanks to everyone who came to my little birthday party last night. Presley did an amazing job organizing, and taking care of everything. I hope everyone had fun.

Here is an iMix of the playlist last night — Ned’s 27th Birthday Playlist.

There are 167 tracks on my playlist, but iTunes only has the rights to sell 104 of them… The full songlist is below the fold.
