Picture 12 I guest posted today on the online magazine— STUDIO 30+. It's a post about my minor midlife crisis at the stupidly young age of 24. In fairness to myself, it was the year that I made some pretty life-changing decisions— namely breaking up with my live-in boyfriend* because I wasn't ready to have kids.

As a side note, I've noticed that since I've had a baby, it's a lot harder to deny the aging process. She's like an adorable yet ever so slightly terrifying visual representation of the passage of time. But that's a post for another time. Or fodder for a future therapy session.

Click here if you'd like to check out my post. But before you do, I'd like to know— was there a specific age that you freaked out about getting older? Was the freak-out tied to something specific in your life that you weren't happy with? Or just a getting older sucks kind of thing?

* I feel the need to mention that my ex-boyfriend is an avid reader, a big supporter and an honest critic of my blog. It took a few years, but he is now a truly excellent friend.
