how i know i have a young soul

My birthday is Monday. I'll be 29.
And the one thing I won't say is "I'm so old!"
It irritates the hell out of me when people say that.
You're only as old as you feel, my friends.

You know the expression "old soul" as in "she has an old soul?"
I don't even really know what it means, but I'm pretty sure, no matter how old I am, no one would ever describe me as such.
The truth is I have a young soul.
Here's how I know:

The words "poop" and "fart" are still funny.

"Keep it classy" means not spilling my drink, not how much or what I drink.

I'd rather still sit at the kids' table.

Whenever I spot giant balls, I get my picture taken with them.

I subject complete strangers to conspicuous "positions."
{such as the Eiffel Tower. I'll let you look that one up on your own.}

There are few things I won't do for free shots.
{a booty shaking contest is not one of them}

I don't take myself too seriously. 
Especially in public.

I may not be wise beyond my years, but I'm not afraid to live and learn and have a little too much fun.
 It makes the hangovers much more worth it.

Good for you! When I turned 30 last month I had so many people ask me if I was dreading it, or felt old. Heck no! When my BFF asked how it felt to be old (she's 3wks younger than me) I told her "I don't know. I'll let you know when it happens!" I agree. You're as old as you feel and so far I feel like I've done more fun and adventurous things in the last month than my 20s combined. Congrats on embracing 29 - 30 will be even better! Oh and make sure to stop by and check out the giveaway I'm doing.

Absolutely freaking LOVE this post! Age twins, I'm tellin' ya! I'll be 29 in November and I am already (and have been) so excited for 30! Age is nothing but a number to me. I'm as young as I feel and I feel pretty young. Sure there are age reminding milestones but I'm where I'm supposed to be and I plan to have fun the entire journey!

I love this post! I'm 31 and I've never felt old. I also hate when people say that. I know someone who didn't want anyone to call them on their 30th birthday, he said his life was over because he was so old. Age does not define how we feel so i hope people can start to realize that.

"I'm so old" ~ something I'll never say, ever.

Which is why we are friends. Even when I'm a granny I'll still be table dancing with the best of them. Only classy tables though.

LOVE this. When I turned 31, I thought it was just lame for me after. It's not. I still NEVER spill my drinks (HAHHAAHHAHAA0 I spill sober) and I'm still having fun. Happy Early Birthday! the 30s are great!

Jacqueline said...

I love this post and am not sure why we don't hang out more.

I think we could do some serious damage!

Happy early birthday, lady!

acornmanphotography said...

haha I love this! I am probably the most immature 30 year old you'll ever meet. I still think farting and burping are hilarious. And I never take a serious photo.
