Thirty Days Until Thirty


Oops! I did it again. (Go Britney!) The weekend kind of stole me away and I wasn't able to get to the computer.  But here I am ready to wrap up my 20's for you.  I'll try to make it short and to the point.

22 - That was a fun time. I pretty much did all my clubbing at this time in my life.  Almost every Friday and definitely every Saturday you could find me downtown be-bopping from club to club.  It used to be a cool set up downtown. You would pay for one club but could actually go to 5 different clubs. Three were all connected and across the street were the other 2.  It was a fun time and gave me an excuse to buy a new shirt every week. :)

21 - Ah, the good ol' drinking age.  Funny thing is, on my 21st birthday I was the designated driver.  I'm not too big on drinking. Mostly because the next day is pretty much a waste.  I enjoy getting up early and taking advantage of the day. 

20 - My nephew Connor Steven Patty came into the world when I was 20.  I saw it all with my own eyes and let me tell you, if you ever get the chance to see a real child birth, I'm not talking on t.v., I mean a real live you are right there watching it all happen, you should do it. It's the most incredible thing I've ever seen. It's amazing what your body is built to do.

19 - Nineteen was a pretty depressing time for me. I didn't quite find myself in my first year of college.  I tried to make friends and I tried to break out of my shell and be more outgoing.  I found out that the immaturity of high school still seeps over into college.  I really was expecting a huge change and maybe there wouldn't be any cliques and I could just be me and be noticed.  That wasn't the case so I moved home and lived with my parents again.  Something I really wanted to do at the time but looking back now I wish I would have sucked it up and stayed and got a degree.  Instead, I got a job at St. John Medical Center and I have been there ever since.  I will be there 11 years in June.  When I passed my 2 year anniversary I was so proud of myself and felt like I had done something really grown up.  

Nineteen was a really lonely time for me.  I didn't have a lot of friends.  I spent a lot of time with my parents and at nineteen that's not what I wanted to do.  No offense to my parents but I wanted to go out. I wanted a boyfriend, I wanted a social life.  As you know, life got better :)

Hope everyone has a great week ahead!  I spent my afternoon watching The Karate Kid to get geared up for Dancing With The Stars tomorrow night.  Go Ralph!!!

Gonna have a Crane kicking week,

April
