Dirty Thirty Mixtape: 30 Theme Songs of My 30th Year Living in This World

In case you didn’t know, last Monday was my 30th birthday. If you remember that episode of Friends where everybody turned 30, well… I gotta admit that it was only a little stressful.

Like honestly, I didn’t think much about how old I am now. I think much about how I am 30 and still not rich enough to buy stuff without checking the price. But anyway…

So, in this opportunity, marking the early days of my dirty thirty, I’m creating a mixtape of the songs that basically sum up my life in the past 30 years. And just so you know, I’m no longer 30 and single. Just 30.

Speaking of the question, I remember 10 years ago when I turned 20, I made some crappy note on Facebook talking about some expectation that I had in 5 years. Some have turned into reality, when some other let’s just say we got buried it into the ground. 😛

And well, it’s already Aquarius season lately and if there’s anything that you need to know, then it is the fact that I’m counting down the days to the day I turn 30. I figure, maybe I should make a post like 10 years ago: some scrap about how I want to see myself in 5 years.
