80s Generation Turns 30

It’s hard to believe, but if you were born in 1980, you’ll be 30 this year.  It is shocking to realize that the people born in my decade are starting to turn 30.  It is peeking just around the corner.  Not that 30 is by any means old (although it probably seemed that way when we were children), it is just kind of weird to think about.

It’s also weird to think about the 90s children are in high school, graduating high school, and some are even in college range and are getting ready to graduate college.  I spent the 90s in elementary school and middle school.  Hard to believe the babies born in that decade are as old as they are now.  I still think of my cousins born in 1996 as babies, but they’re turning 14 this year.  14!  I remember them from when they were just 4.  hard to believe it’s been ten years already.

You know, the sad thing is, looking back as we 80s children approach 30, more than half our lives (so far) consist of school. Kind of pathetic in a way, if you think about it – especially if you regard the downturn of education.  But I shouldn’t get started on another rant about education in Michigan and the US in general.

But anywho, Happy 30th 1980!

  1. i just turned 29. that part isn't bugging me, but the part where people born in the mid-80s are old enough to function is. …i keep fogetting that everybody i went to adrian with was a gazillion years younger than me. XD

  2. Nah, not a gazillion. I am only 4 years younger than you are. I could care less about my age, although it is weird to know there's 5 years til I hit 30, but it's weird thinking the late 80s and early 90s children are getting to age where they are old enough to function too . . . weird
