30. 30 years. 30 years old. I turned 30 in April. Does anyone ever really think that you will turn 30? Not anyone in their 20's, certainly. Your 20's are full of fun, parties, invincibility.....things like that. Your 30s....not so much. I've realized I've set out on the path to "domesticness"... wife, house, dog, far in that order, and I am COMPLETELY OK with that. Really, I am. Honestly. But I'm pretty sure no one really thinks they will ever get there......until you turn 30.

At 30 you take a look at yourself and you say, "OK, I guess I'm not a kid any more, but I sure as HELL don't feel like an adult, so what do I do." You either revert to acting like a 20 year old or you take some responsibility and JUST GROW UP. I plan to do the latter. And unfortunately, too few people do the former. I guess that's your prerogative. I mean we all wanna "rock and roll all night, and party every day", but at some point you have to actually remove your head from you ass and get your shit together. But, hey, that's just me......and what the hell do I know, right.

Edit: I guess this post doesn't have much to do with being an x-ray tech, but it's my blog and I'll abuse the rules if and when I it!

Happy late birthday! My husband turns 30 in a few weeks, so I know what you are talking about! Congrats on the house! We're looking for one now, and it is an exhausting process.
Take care!

30 is the prime of your life, celebrate it.

Is that your lawn? It's perfect. Too bad I can't grow something like that down in Phoenix.

Ha ha, nope, that one isn't ours. We don't really have a lawn, more of a weed patch. :-)

Hey Dustin,

I was not sure how to reach you - so I am submitting this as a blog comment.

Happy VERY belated birthday! I like your x-ray blog & your photo blog too. I have been playing around with night photography - but winter in Washington is not a good place to see the start (rain, rain, rain).

So I was also wonder if you would add our site & blog to your Radiology Links section? My website is: is the featured link on Dave's Places in Radiology this month, and that is how I found your blogs.

Just let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Josh
