I had to sign up perhaps to give hope to someone who has passed 27, or perhaps to offload ...
27 was horrible. I thought it would be awesome and special but it was the year that my long term relationship fell to pieces, I had sacrificed a career and good portion of my personality because it suited someone else better, and I was unrecognisable to the kick ass person I thought I would be when I was 17.
Turning 30 was brilliant (as have the rest of my 30s) - I finally felt grown up and completely happy with who I was as a person. Sure the big plans don't always work out as I thought they would, but I'm ok with the adventure of finding a new way instead.
