accepting these things
"At twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty, the wit, and at forty, the judgement." ~ Ben Franklin
"Time and tide wait for no man, but time always stands still for a woman of thirty." ~ Robert Frost
Everything I know I learned after I was thirty". ~ Georges Clemenceau
"The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits."
~ Hervey Allen
So, 30. That seems to be the most profound thought I've had since my birthday. I'd dreaded 30, and yet now that it's happened I have this strange sense of achievment. I liken the feelings of dread, which I had felt, to the feelings which I had when I applied for colleges; I knew that one of the colleges had to accept me, but until someone did there was this heavy feeling, like an apprehension of the unknown. And so, I begin the next decade of my life, my thirties, which best friend L swears are the best.
