I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

For me turning 40 was great! Remember, it's not the age it's the attitude.

Posted:Actually I'm kinda looking forward to 30 - it's not too far away. I think mentally being a 30something is completely different to a 20something, to yourself and those who percieve you.

But as it's not too far away I've no great aspirations of being a kick ass juggler by then. I'll settle for 4 balls, a couple of tricks and a smile smile

Posted:My experience? 30 was GREAT, 31 sucked, and so far 32 is pretty damned good.

31 sucked only because of what was happening within my family...illnesses and death. The rest was pretty ok, to be honest.

In the end, life is what you make of it...in my opinion.

Posted:Yeah... getting older ain't that bad.... smile in fact these days I am more free.. happy go lucky and into mischief then I ever was as a kido ubbloco... when I was younger I thought that u had to be serious.. think about your career.. work hard.. get a decent job... a house.. and everything else and that by 25 I would be soo much more on-to-it and knowledgeable... now I am past 25 (just) I don't know how much more on-to-it I actually am but I realise that life is precious.. that following the more "normal" way of life isn't necessarily the most fun and I love to go out and play with fire till the wee hours of the morning... to go to the beach and fall asleep under the stars by a bonfire... to travel all over the world with only your pack on your back.. and that meeting beautiful people and becoming friends is one of the best things in the world. hug

I've met soo many wonderful people in my life... truly beautiful people in the recent years... if furthur years means meeting more of these people then I can't wait. I am doing things now.. that I never even dreamed of doing a few years ago... getting older and the future.. yippee!!! .....bring it on .. ubbrollsmile

As for spinning.. by 30 will have spun for 7 years... contact juggled 8 years.. juggled.. 9 years... wow.. wonder if that will make me any good....?? biggrin

Posted:What a great thread.

I'm turning 30 NEXT WEEK! On Thursday 2/26. eek And I've never been so excited.

10 years was too long to spend in my 20s. 20s were SO FRIGGIN HARD! Now life is only improving - with increasing speed - all the time.

I feel like there are things I just don't do now because I'm turning 30. All of you in your 20s can deal with these things if you want to but I'm done. In fact, this is the best my life has been since junior high school.

These are the things that are ending with my 20s:
I do not date a**h***s.
I do not live with cockroaches.
I do not take laxitives, diet pills, metabolism enhancing pills or any other kind of pills.
And I do not take crap from my family.

Another year I've not won a grand prix.
Another year I've not been selected for the olympics.
Another year closer to dying.

I'm 19 with 8 years experience.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
