Life After 30

Now that I’m 30 I can definitely see where some of my priorities have shifted. I now care more about taking care of myself and building as many savings accounts as I can instead of what my weekend plans are. In fact, if my weekend plans consist of ‘do nothing’, I consider that a successful weekend. Being 30 has made me realize some other things as well...

I’m such a homebody.
Somewhere I knew this was always a big thing with me. I greatly enjoy time alone and if I can go an entire weekend obligation free, I’m happy. It’s not to say I don’t want to hang out with friends or go do something, it’s just that I really value my time at home.

Fat isn’t friendly.
This is kind of a given but I swear I notice it a lot more now. When you’re in your 20s and want to drop weight, you skip a few meals, ramp up your cardio or just stop drinking soda. Now, you gotta send in the entire army. Cut down on bread, exercise more, eat more greens, read nutrition labels.... it’s serious work to lose even 10 pounds.

Kitty’s claws are out
Everyone and everything annoys me. From the people on the bus to other drivers, my Facebook feed to {sometimes} my coworkers.... My list of pet peeves is growing by the month.

10 pm is bedtime
I don't know when it happened or how it happened but 10 pm is the magic hour for me. And that magic involves hitting the pillow. What's even better is if I'm in bed by 9:30 and asleep by 10, Seriously. This is a joy. 

This needs to be my middle name. It's just my all encompassing feeling about just about everything. That's not to say that I don't care, it's just that I'm really like, whatever man. I don't put in more effort than needed. I have no reason, or desire, to impress people. I don't care about what's trending or the "in" thing. It's just not me.

So, for the record....
