So it's my birthday today. I've now officially reached the 3rd full decade of life. Or is it 4th? I mean, if I'm 30 then I've *completed* three decades and have started my 4th, right? Barbie was right, math is hard...
Turning 30 is nowhere near as scary as the sitcoms or other girl-centric media would have you believe. I feel the same way I did yesterday, still look the same, and nothing seems different about the world. I think I actually had a harder time turning 20 than I did 30.
Notable things that have happened on my birthday that I can name off the top of my head:
1) Challenger Disaster (yeah, that was a *great* birthday...)
2) USA for Africa records "We Are the World"
3) Sarah McLaughlin born
4) Alan Alda born
5) King Henry VIII died
6) The US Coast Guard founded
7) Two Boy-Band members born: Joey Fattone and Nick Carter
8) Diet of Worms began (where Martin Luther was declared an outlaw by the Catholic Church)
