    Yep, the big 2-9. It's crazy how years ago I was like "gross" when I'd thught about being this old, and now I love it. It's also weird how so many things and preferences have changed.

    Middle aged women have become HOT?! What the fuck?

    I find myself at work looking at home decorating sites and being like, "Yep. Defintiely painting the family room THAT color", and thinking a lot about our wedding coming up and the colors, who's going to cater this, that, the reception, the music, blah blah blah.

    And, I guess that's what I wanted to hit the head on. As much as I love Transformers as a hobby, I am really and truly inspired by all of the men and women on here who show such pride for their loved ones, especially kids. It's definitely the road that I'm headed towards, and it's awesome to be a part of a community that takes a lot of pride in that aspect of life.

    So, props to all of you, married or single, and glad to have been able to be a part of this for the past year. You've all inspired and encouraged me in ways far beyond collecting.

    Happy birthday mate, being older and more mature is actually quite awesome and enjoyable despite what those young whippersnappers might say :D

    TJ, before you cut your birthday cake tonight, put it in a light box and take some pictures of it, slap it in the cool stuff - life edition thread, and only then will this be a true TJ Duckett birthday!

    Joking aside, Happy Birthday man :bday ; you're certainly an asset to the community.

    Happy Birthday TJ! Be warned, when you turn 30 you'll gain a bunch of weight and your body will turn against you...don't be surprised if you throw your back out while standing up from the couch. So in other words, enjoy 29 bud!

    Gotta love these words of encouragement, haha.


    Seriously though, it's always good to see people positively advance in their lives, regardless of the age involved. Congrats on the journey, and yeah. Be sure to take plenty of pictures for us. :)

    Hahahahahaa. You guys are killin' me! And yea, I'm not going to lie, if it weren't for things like career advancement and the relationship progress and stuff like that, I'd probably hate today, but since things feel like they're moving forward along WITH my age, then it's a really cool and accomplished feeling!

    But, one thing I will say is this:

    I've done a lot of thinking, and it seems like a lot of it revolves around college. Between unprotected sex (TMI, sorry) and driving home drunk, it seems like there are a lotta' situations where God (Yes, I'm a Christian, not pushing views tho) gave me opportunity after opportunity, and I still came out not dead, dying, or having hurt someone else.

    It's nice to have a state of mind where I just plain don't take life for granted as much.

    And LMFAO at the Cake in the lightbox! :lol
