I have spent one full day as the latest member of the trigenarian club. I didn't hurt too much.
I have been a little depressed leading up to this. Mostly because I don't think I'm as far along in "life" as I expected to be at this age. I know that I shouldn't compare myself to others, but it's hard not to see what other people my age have accomplished in their lives.
Blah, blah, blah - it's not a sprint, it's a marathon - blah, blah, blah. That doesn't keep me from being a little depressed. As a guy, I'm "supposed to" compare myself to others and to compete to be better. I know this isn't necessarily the right thing to do, but in my weaker moments I can't help but look around at other people who have working in their career for 10 years by the time their my age - I'm still an intern. Some times I wonder if I'll ever get there.
Note: I'm not looking to be cheered up. I'm not fishing for compliments. I just wanted to share these thoughts. I'll be fine. I know that I have to walk my path and not others'. I just needed to get this out of my head. Thanks.
