The Answer is Right in Front of Me

Yes, the answer is right in front of me. In this very blog. Last night I went back and read the previous 2 entries. And right there, in order none the less, was my answer. My twenties were a golden moment. I can't stay there forever or I will ruin it. I will trudge forward and look back on my twenties and be proud of all that I have accomplished. I can only imagine what the 30s have in store for me. More children? Who knows. More wisdom? Yes! I was smarter yesterday for sure. Let me share a math problem with you....

Given: log (base 8) 10 = P, log (base 8) 12 = Q, and log (base 8) 11 = R
Find: log (base 8) 5/256.

Sounds greek doesn't it? But I solved it yesterday and I'm positive that I would not have been able to solve such a problem in my twenties. Then again, I never tried the problem in my twenties either, but that's not the point. Anyway the answer to this problem is P - 3.

My feelings have not changed overnight. I am still mourning the loss of my twenties. And no funeral would be complete without flowers:

A friend at work gave these to me and the card of course said something along the lines of happy birthday, but for this post we are going to pretent the card read, "Sorry about the loss of your twenties. I know that the two of you were close."
Goodbye Twenties! It was great while it lasted. I will always remember you!
