Derek Papakie Turns 30 Today!

Today, I would like to wish my cousin, Derek Papakie, a happy 30th birthday.  Derek is one of the classiest people I have ever known.  He is both a fantastic friend and a terrific cousin … and he has been a terrific father since last July.

Now, in the first half of the 2010s, Derek and I were “twinning” a lot.  We would wear matching T-shirts, matching jackets, matching sandals, matching sports jerseys, matching hats and even matching polo shirts.

So, today, I would like to say “happy 30th birthday” to Derek Papakie.  Happy 30th birthday, Derek!

These are the gifts that I got for my 30th birthday, which took place earlier this month. I have used some of these gifts that can be found in these pictures.

These are the gifts that I got for my 30th birthday this month.  I have various things here.  I have mostly clothes here … and I also have products that I use whenever I’m in the restroom or the shower.  I also have a new tall cup.  I have also talked about some of these items in some of my previous blog posts as well.  I will give you the links to them as well.

You can also see some of the items that I got for my birthday by clicking on one of the blog posts that are featured here …

My V-neck shirt
My new “Elite” shorts
My new outfit from Tony Hawk
My new loafers and my new light blue polo shirt
My new Pirates shorts

I hope you like these items as much as I do.

Joseph is now 30 years old!

At 6:33 this morning, I said good-bye to my 20s … and I said hello to my 30s.  A lot has changed since I entered my 20s for the first time back in 2006.  I graduated from high school for real back in 2007 … and I started working at Bridgeville T.J. Maxx shortly thereafter … and I’m still there nine years later.  Also … while I was in my 20s, I kind of evolved in many ways.  When I first entered my 20s, I would hate it whenever someone would say “please” and “thank you” to me … and now as I leave my 20s, I am saying those words as often as possible … and I’m also urging other people to do the same thing whenever they can.

As I enter my 30s today, more things will be changing for me … and hopefully I will be able to do some exciting and challenging things at some point in the next ten years.

So, let me just say, I’m not ready to become a 30-year-old man.  I can’t wait to see what lies down the road for me while I’m in my 30s.
