It's here. I'm thirty years old. I don't feel older or wiser… yet.  Maybe that happens when I wake up in the morning, eh?  I made a 30 in 30 list.  There was a Twenty-Eight List and The 27 Things but nothing last year – and I kind of missed it.  I missed crossing those accomplishments off with a thick bold line.  So here we go again.
