It takes a long time to grow young. – Pablo Picasso
Today is my birthday, not just any birthday, but my 30th birthday. I’m leaving my 20s behind and embarking on a whole new set of numbers. I’m okay with it though, while many are crying about getting older; I’m embracing it because my 20s were something to be forgotten for the most part. Besides, I’m told you really find yourself in your 30s and I’m so ready for that to happen!
So instead of a whole spiel about getting older and what not I figured I would do something fun.
Here we go…
What Happened in 1978?
~ Garfield made his comic strip debut in June.. Odie followed making his first appearance in the comic strip in August.
~ In October, Cardinal Karol Wojtyla becomes Pope John Paul II and makes history as the first Polish pope.
~ Diff’rent Strokes premieres on NBC in November.
~ A renovated Hollywood sign is unveiled in November, replacing the older version that was built in 1923.
~ Top films of the year included: Grease, Superman, Jaws II and The Deer Hunter
~ Other cool people were born including: Gianluigi Buffon, Kobe Bryant (who speaks Italian fluently might I add), Eve (same day as me), and Nelly Furtado.
Now, come on 30s, show me what you got!
