Something strange happened to me earlier this year. It was nothing new or out of the ordinary or anything really exciting like winning the lottery or a year of free pizzas. It was just my birthday. As far as I can tell, birthdays seem to happen every year, right on time. But this birthday felt a little different at first because it was my 30th. Turns out, turning 30 is no big deal…even if I thought it was for a while.
