I am turning 31 years old in two days, and I think it's... kind of funny. I sure as hell don't feel 31, but then again, what is a 31 year-old supposed to feel like? I know that I am a completely different person than I was at 21, but I wonder how many differences have popped up in the past ten years. Let's compare, shall we?
