Happy Birthday to Me

So I’m 30. And the world didn’t end.

Birthday wishes have been trickling in; thanks to everyone who sent me an email or IM.

I’m celebrating by eating a delicious sandwich from Pret A Manager and going with Jeff to see “Dames at Sea” at the Jean Cocteau Rep.

In what is threatening to become an annual tradition, I quit my job again yesterday and then un-quit. I think I’m coming to the end of the road of being a hall director, so this next year will be full of soul-searching for my next career.

Happy Birthday Matt. You made it. Well done.

Matt, Happy Birthday! I concur with Thom’s assessment. Your 30’s will be brilliant. Now you need to have drinks somewhere so I can return the favor and come buy YOU a drink. 🙂
