You know you're getting old when....

...when you go to the grocery and scan the aisle specifically for milk that are for "ADULT PLUS".  

I love drinking milk but I don't drink it everyday.  But since I just turned 30 a couple of weeks back, I am reminded that I am not young anymore so I need to take in as much milk (milk=calcium=stronger bones, lol!) to keep my bones strong. Hehehehe.

I didn't take a leave from work on the day of my birthday. As you get older, you realize that the world doesn't stop just because it's your big day. So I was working last January 5th. It was the first time in a long while that I spent my birthday in the office. But that's life, there are responsibilities that need to be fulfilled. I was in our Lipa office on the day of my birthday, working my ass off. LOL. We had an important meeting that cannot be cancelled. We got back in Manila January 6th and that's when I took a leave off from work and just spent three straight days holed up at home.

I was planning to go somewhere fun but it was a very rainy weekend and it's so hard to get out of bed.  So I just stayed in, ordered chinese take-out and pizza and spent the weekend catching up on my torrent downloads. I used to have a fear of growing old. I used to get shingles when I think of turning 30.  But you know what, it's not so bad from where I'm sitting right now. I feel more independent and empowered and I feel more wise (?) about life, love, money and everything that comes in-between.

Have a great Monday everyone! Mwah mwah! :)
