Adventures of 29 Year Old Girl - Week One.

Friday, May 20, 2016

Introducing, 29 Year Old Girl.

Not a girl, not yet a Super Woman either. She fights crime (problems in her head) (often made up) one day at a time.

She gets out of bed every day before 8 a.m. because she is an ADULT. She runs on coffee and Advil. Around 3 p.m. she makes more coffee. And sometimes again after dinner because WHY NOT.

She starts each morning in her cape (bathrobe) and repeats, "I'm okay, I'm okay, I'm okay" over and over. She stares herself in the mirror and says, "today will be a good day!"And she almost always believes it.

She listens to The Secret and Ted Talks in her earbuds but pretends she's listening to cool hipster music.

She likes her wine two glasses at a time. But after that she has to slow down because damn it her hangovers only seem to get more intense with each day that passes.

She's always on the quest to find the perfect under eye cream, dark spot corrector, and most importantly, to pluck every new chin hair that seems to pop up out of NOWHERE.

Like why am I getting all these chin hairs?!

She's faces the worlds challenges like a true warrior and hasn't cried in the shower in over a week.

She likes to talk about her "system" a lot and "things that mess with it." Hummus, quinoa, anything from Sultan's Market. It's hard to stay regular, am I right ladies?!

She is... 29 Year Old Girl.

This is her last year in her twenties (as everyone likes to remind her) and she is going to kill it.

She's going to.  Kill it.

She's going to do something. That's certain.

**Series To Be Continued.**


  1. Accurately depicted anyone in their 20s. Except for 20 year olds. Because they're not jaded yet.

  2. As 30 approaches (2 months away) I have to admit that was me all year long. Keep doing what you're doing, it will work.

  3. You are going to do something great. And honestly, you already are. You don't give yourself enough credit!

  4. Tay, as a girl (woman?) halfway through 29 I can totally relate. I have something to add to your list: WRINKLES. FINE LINES. OMG. Like where did they come from? Why so many? My forehead suddenly looks like 80 yr old skin. This leads to: Maybe I should get Botox. Does it hurt? How much does it cost? Too risky to do before my wedding? GOOD GOD, HELP.

  5. I am gonna be 30 in august! Ack!!!!! Happy birthday babe!
