Hump Day, Sort Of

with 3 comments

So I’m almost caught up with this week.

What am I angry about today, and by that I mean yesterday?

Getting older.

I don’t enjoy certainty or inevitability, the ironic part being:  death is a certainty and aging inevitable. The older I get, the faster time flies, and not because I’m having fun. (Okay, I’m having a little fun.) Where’s my cryogenic tank? Who’s working on time machine technology? Sweet baby Jesus, call Michael J. Fox and get that flux capacitor back, I’M AGING!!! Call the National Guard, get our top scientists on this — I don’t have much time.

With my birthday tomorrow — I’ll be 29 for the sixth year in a row, mind you — I’m excited and annoyed. I’m excited for this year and so many opportunities; I’m annoyed that aging bothers me, and that it’s even an issue to begin with. I just want to be.

Which sounds all woo and balanced, but being is harder for us micromanaging control freaks who never sleep. Maybe I’ll aim for relaxed, shoot for happy, and land on ‘Age is just a number.’ There’s nothing truer than that statement right there: Age is just a number. I’m just twitchy because that number is 34. I mean, who even turns that age? Reluctant 33-year olds, that’s who.

The Esq is taking me on a surprise outing tomorrow, but I’m just happy to spend the whole day with him; working every day was taking a toll.
