I turned 30 over two months ago. Since I’m only only getting stronger, faster and more handsome with each year, I have nothing to lament. As my father said in my birthday card, “Only 10 more years until you begin making sense!”
With that being said, I do want to tell my 18-year-old self something, so you may all leave the room.
Turns out there are as few smart and interesting people as you feared. However, the smart and interesting people you do encounter are far more smart and interesting than you prepared for.
