The worst part about celebrating another birthday is the shock that you’re only as well as you are.

It just hit me that my birthday countdown is now in the single digits. 9 days in fact. As most people would be ecstatic to celebrate their birthdays, I am not. I’ve never really like celebrating my birthday and really just want to get it over with. I guess you can say that I do not like the attention and receive gifts from other people. It’s just me. Dave is trying to get me excited for my upcoming birthday. I think he’s more excited than I am haha I do like get birthday freebies hahaha Click here to sign up to receive free stuff on your birthday!

This year I will be turning the big 3-0! I like to set some goals/accomplishments for myself. I don’t normally write it down but I thought it would be nice to write some of the items here that I would like to pursue for the new decade of my life. I feel like I’ve accomplished most of the things I wanted in my twenties and those that I have not will still be on the list. No particular order

  1. Buy a luxury car (Hopefully by this year)
  2. Buy a single house home (Mid 30s?)
  3. Go to China and visit the Great Wall of China
  4. Go to Peru and climb Machu Picchu
  5. Create a Janandjot YouTube channel
  6. Create a Janandjot facebook page
  7. Get married
  8. Have a child
  9. Find a new job that is closer to home
  10. Invent something and get a patent
  11. Go on a cruise
  12. Visit my grandmother in Vietnam
  13. Make some beignets
  14. Buy a fancy espresso machine
  15. Redo my kitchen
  16. Fly in a helicopter
  17. Ride a hot balloon
  18. Learn how to swim
  19. Be in four States at once
  20. Parasailing
  21. Hang gliding
  22. Go to a casino and gamble $1K LOL
  23. Become VIB Rouge at Sephora
  24. Read more books

Okay, I can probably add more to this list but I will stop. I love having this blog so I can reference back to what I write. It’s set. I need to follow this list hahaha

I’m not afraid of turning 30 but I really do feel old (although people still mistaken me for a 22 year old yay) hahaha I am getting those sayings from people like “You’re not getting any younger. You should probably settle down now” or “Time is ticking” “If you want to start a family you should start now” hmm all of these all refers to not being married or having a kid…interesting hahaha I do want to be married and have children but just need to find that right person to do it with hahaha But I don’t let those things bother me. I make sure that I am happy first LOL

Anywho, sorry for this random post. I am looking forward to my actual birthday. I plan on working half a day at work. Made reservation for a one hour massage ahhh and having dinner with close friends and family. Topping the night with drinks at a rooftop in downtown Chicago. I know it will be fun but again just want to get it over with LOL

Hope you all have a wonder Wednesday! Half way through yeah!
