Sometime last year I noticed a shining white hair among my usual brown. I was excited because I have felt like a kid for so long, it felt like real proof that I was growing up.
Over the summer my head became, rather suddenly, much more populated by this white hairs. Mostly on the left side. It’s becoming rather alarming.
I mean, I’ve lived a lot of life in the past 10 years. Hell, I’ve lived a lot of life in the past two years, but I don’t mind when I tell people my actually age and their reaction is “No, really?”
I have loved my 30s, they’ve been a great time of fun and hard work and discovery. But the fact is that I still feel like I’m 17 and I’m waiting for the adult-ness to hit.
I mean, I have a 6-year-old who started Grade 1. I’m about to graduate with my Masters degree. We celebrate our 10th year married next year.
But I’m still not entirely convinced the first part of the 2000s happened. I mean, I know I did things in each of those years – graduated high school, worked, started and finished college, started and finished university got a dog, got married, got a job, and was pregnant. Pregnant for a LONG FREAKING TIME.
And on another note – I’m getting grey hairs, I assume I’m getting wrinkles as well, so why in the hell do I still have blackheads? Not okay universe.
