29 version 3.0 (?)

As my mother cheerfully pointed out to me this morning – today, I am 2 months away from being 32. Thirty-two people …. 3-2!

How the hell did that happen?

I swear I was 24 yesterday, and 17 was only about 3 weeks ago, how did this sneak up on me? THIRTY-TWO – that’s like way into being a full-fledged grown-up! And yet, I still don’t know what I’m doing. Shouldn’t I know something by now – shouldn’t I be smarter, at least slightly enlightened, more sure of myself … something?

I think there should be some sort of test, and if you don’t pass it you can’t move into the next decade of your life – you just have to stay 29, 39, 49, etc.? That way, people will expect less of you until you pull it together more.

Some days, I think I know something, I think I’ve grown and changed a lot over the last few years. But mostly I feel like an idiot who gets most things in life completely wrong, and would therefore never pass the test. I would be stuck at 29 indefinitely – and in two months I’d be turning 29 version 3.0

Yeah, I could swear I was only 24 next month.

I'm good at tests. I'm just bad at succeeding.
