About Thirtysomethingscientist

First and foremost, I was attempting to come up with a persona that reflects who I am. Yes, I am actually thirty-something years old. After you hit 30, the actual number doesn’t matter. Its important when you’re in your twenties to distinguish between being 22 and being 28. Those 6 years really do mean the difference in maturity. It’s a difference in being in college, to being out in the real world (at least for some). It’s the whole coming of age spectrum. However, when you hit thirty, you’re assuming that you’ve already been through the painful growing pains of a first job, first place to live and generally first time out on your own. You hit your stride in your 30’s. It is the abundant decade….You’re old enough to know better (this is a generalization, mind you) yet young enough to pursue just about anything. Secondly, I think that most parents, or even singles for that matter (e.g., everyone), can consider themselves a scientist. We plan, we course correct, and we have outcomes. We try different methods to get the desired result. We find out what works and what doesn’t. We recommend, we advise and we adjust. Everyone does it. We are all scientists.
