i am thirty

Yesterday I turned thirty.
Over the last few months I have spent more time than I wanted, pondering this number.

What I have achieved – married to a man that I have shared a love with since we were 18, a bachelors degree and a masters degree in visual arts, pursuing an art practice

And what I have not achieved – a job within my field, a solid art opportunity since graduating, any financial security in the slightest

But yesterday I just went to the beach. It was lovely.

I live on an amazing island and probably for the first time in thirty years it was sunny and hot on June 4th.

So cheers to me and to all of you thirty year olds out there. Let’s just get outside and learn to relax.
