If I were a little younger...

maybe I would wear this outfit from rubgy RL. I don't have a problem with being 29, but there are certain things I won't wear. (like really short skirts other than going to the beach) And as a I think about it, I didn't wear it when I was younger because I am slightly conservative when it comes to dressing. The other day, I went into Urban Outfitters and for about 2 seconds felt like maybe I was too old to shop there... until I saw a woman older than my mother shopping for herself. This was a weird experience for me because I don't normally think about getting older in bad way. I also don't want to be an old lady saying, "If I were a little younger, I would have ..."
This is the reason I want to go to law school, run another marathon (on the Great Wall of China), start playing tennis (again) and the piano (again). (maybe I will wear a short skirt - just because I can) I don't want to be 83 and think back, "I wish I would have done ..."
(and I know I will think this if I don't try)
As 30 approaches in August, I will continue to smother myself in SPF 50 and shop at Urban Outfitters and Forever 21.

Trust me on this one. You do NOT want to go to law school.

And just what's wrong with being older than your mother?
