When I was 18 years old I met a man who was 32 years old and I vividly remember telling him that he was so, so old and his life is pretty much over. (Only a young obnoxious 18-year-old me could say such thing). His response to me was something like this: you are a silly little girl; at 30 years old life just begins….
Well, I am not 30 anymore – I passed 40 too and now just one day before my 40 something birthday, I am looking back to see who I am now vs. that silly little girl.
I am an optimist, my glass is always half full, even when I am feeling blue, I know it will pass and life will be beautiful again!
I like/love dancing, but I don’t like to watch dancing shows, is that weird?
I love traveling and if it was up to me I would quit my job today and I would start my journey around the World! I have the perfect partner for it too – my hubby!
I get drunk after 2 glasses of wine – embarrassing but so true.
I am still very much afraid of the dark.
I don’t know what I love more – ocean or mountains. I would choose both, that is why my goal is eventually to end up in California (I am afraid this will not happen anytime soon).
I cry at the end of sad movies or a sad book.
I want to learn another language – Italian.
I am a supporter of Equal Human Rights. I don’t care if you’re black or white, red or yellow, gay or straight, fat or thin, short or tall, we all are equal unless you are a member of an Al-Qaeda group or any other terrorist organization, then you don’t have any rights.
Sometimes I pick “Entertainment Tonight” over Jeopardy, even though I know that Jeopardy is so much better for my brain, but there are days when I need to know what is going with Angelina Jolie or George Clooney (don’t ask me why, I will not have an answer for you.)
I regret few things in my live, one it particular – not validating my engineering degree. Don’t take me wrong, I like my job and I like some of the people I am working with, otherwise I would not be there for 20 years, but it would have been nice to confirm what I’ve studied for 5 years back in USSR
There are plenty of people , who think that I am a bitch and it’s ok, I am learning how not to give a hoot about them. (The Complete Guide to Not Giving a F…k) , it’s a long process, I am not there yet.
I have the same group of friends for over 18 years and even longer. I am one of the luckiest people whose friends came from the same town I was born in and surprisingly we stayed friends all these years.
My family is my ROCK, they will always come first no matter what.
My biggest accomplishments are my 2 boys.
For the first time in my life I can say that I am comfortable in my skin, even it this skin shows a few stretch marks. I am who I am, but I am a huge believer in self improvements, so life at 40 something just begins….
