How is it that a birthday trip is more work that a birthday party in town? This is precisely why I made plans to get out of here and go to Mexico. I have tried and failed multiple times with the whole birthday party/birthday dinner thing. My friends told me it was necessary to celebrate turning 30 and I would regret it if I didn’t, so rather than make some big production at home, I thought I would go to one of my favorite places. Mexico. Even though I’ve known about this trip for nearly 2 months, I have 2 days to get the things I need. Why do I do this? I will never know. Maybe it’s because some things about the trip have changed and I was kind of avoiding that fact.
Do you stop procrastinating at 30 or is that just something that sticks with you for life? Like being messy. Also, I am just really looking forward to being on a beach with my closest friends. I feel like this is how I would want my wedding to be. I don’t want a wedding really, but since people want to celebrate events like that, let’s go on a vacation that we can all benefit from. Though I would hope that at my wedding, I wouldn’t get dumped a month before. Not something I could ever forgive really. I know I have a great job and some genuinely great friends, but I really hope the 30’s ARE so much better than my 20’s like everyone says. The past 2 years have without a doubt been the hardest of my life and I am just tired. I’m ready for a little clarity here. Not that I expect that to happen the day I wake up 30 this Friday, but I am making the weekend my New Year’s redo of sorts. Instead of giving up french fries I am giving up crappy guys. I didn’t realize that was an unhealthy habit of mine and is far more detrimental to my wellbeing that the occasional fry or plate of fries…I am most excited for the weekend because I have planned a fun surprise for my friends after my birthday dinner and I really just enjoy making sure others have a good time. It’s also the least I can do after making them wear the matching sombreros I ordered on the airplane because I didn’t get them in time to ship. We are also all sitting separately across the plane because it was nearly sold out when we booked. I’m sure we won’t be annoying to the other passengers at all:) Then again, it’s just sombreros and a 30th birthday. Way tamer than 21 and way less offensive than bachelorette and genitalia straws.
