so i am entering a new decade of age in a mere 1 hour and 25 minutes. am i excited about this monumental change? not so much. but someone this weekend thought i was turning the very young age of 22 this weekend and that made me feel better about what will inevitably occur on october 7th.
here are a few of the interesting events that happened in the wonderful year of my birth (1979) you can calculate from that how old i am turning.
