    You only think that now. In 10 15 years you will be thinking way different.

    I actually don't think it now... I just like trolling for reactions with comments like that once in a while ;) :devil::giggle:

    I'm fine with turning 30. Just a number. Just one more year.

    I'm rather happy with where I am right now, overall.

    30 is soposedly one of those milestones, for some its a good thing, for some a bad thing... I think its good. I've gone through a lot to get here, and am surprised as all hell that I did get this far ;) I've earned that number, and am proud to be here, and be this old Age.

    I'm in better physical(and mental) condition than I've been in for almost a decade... In some ways not as good as I was at one time... I don't have anywhere near the upper body strength I had when I was 22 or 23, having lost it in the painful years since where I wasn't very active. But in some other ways I'm in better shape than I've *Ever* been in(like the lack of pain 99% of the time, as opposed to the Literal years I spent where it Never went away). I'm also a stronger christian than I've ever been, That part of my life has evolved a lot in the last year alone.

    And to be honest, even if I wasn't turning 30, or if it was 35, or 40 or 50, I don't consider any of it "Old". Most of my close friends are between 45 and 55, or older... I relate to that generation better than I do to my own. My mother just turned 72 this spring. Dad would have been 85 on April 1st. He was 55 when I was born... Never considered either of them "Old" either. My perceptions on relative/comparative age, and what "Old" is, are a bit skewed compared to most guys my age and the common accepted "normal".

    My best friend has always said he will grow old, but refuses to grow up... ;) As far as I'm concerned he's not doing either, and he'll be 52 this fall.

    Age is physical. Being Old is in your mind. :cool:

    I don't consider myself old in my mind. I'm still just a kid with s job like that film "Big". But my back and the chiropractor appointment tomorrow is reminding me I'm 42 lol
