Hello. I’m 40 now. Yes, 40 years old.
How is it? About the same as 35. I was actually in Tokyo for my 40th birthday and had a bit of an emotional meltdown. Perhaps it was the jet lag combined with the thought of getting older, who knows.
I did think of my father, who I haven’t seen or spoken with in several years. That tends to mess with your head quite a bit. My brother says to let it go but it’s easier said than done. I remember listening to Dana Carvey on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast and he talked a lot about his father issues. Dana Carvey! One of the most respected SNL members of all time is still dealing with father issues well past 40 years old. I guess it never ends.
My back also hurts. Sitting in a cubicle and counting minutes down. You don’t get those back.
