My twenties. They're over. Finished. Gone.
Today is my 30th birthday. There. I've said it. Now you know. Eh, it's just a number.
I decided to do something dorky to 'celebrate' me...cause that's me, the dorky 30 year old.
I tried to come up with something I could remember about each year of my life. It wasn't possible. There were a couple years where nothing came to mind. And there was some guessing involved...so to those of you who may know the 'real' year that something happened, do not correct me. Let me be right. It's my birthday for heaven's sake!

This was fun for me; I hope I didn't bore you!
If I did, I'm not sorry. Because it's my day and I'll bore you if I want to.
(ooo, is there a new kind of sass that comes with being 30??)
Happy Birthday to me!
