I am now 42.
Wow. Man, a lot has happened between now and 41. Feels longer than a year. Heck, I think i even grew up to be *gulp* - an adult.
Now I regard most thirty-somethings as clueless babies. *cackle*
Feels good actually. My health is better, my stress level is down and Im bursting to go do things. And i dont even mind the gray in my hair anymore.
I like where Im at.
For the record, I feel 32. Just not as confused as I was then.
One of my things is to watch the people who are the same age as I am, born in 1964 - year of the dragon.
