In mere days, I'll finally turn 30!
I've got everything planned. The priority is updating my work I.D. and directory picture so my new, better, more mature age will be reflected. Now when a client or colleague asks about my age, I can confidently reply that I'm in my 30's. There'll be no more blurring the age lines for me by mumbling that I passed the bar ages ago, and haven't yet lost a case.

It's especially annoying when I'm working on a case or a legal question w/ someone else, who's no doubt brilliant, but has a different sleeping pattern than I do. As in, they actually go to sleep every night, while unfortunately, I'm still raring to go.

For me, one of the not so pleasant aspects to being a gal, are the many lovely social invitations we receive, and the many, expensive gifts we're expected to bring. Engagement parties, bachelorette parties, weddings, baby showers, open house parties, kindergarten graduations, they're all very important you know.
