A few days before my mom died she asked me what I was going to do right after “it” happens. It being her passing away. I told her that I would ask my cousin to help me with the arrangements and then I would go to Vegas. We both laughed. The Vegas part was kind of a joke, she knew how much I enjoy Las Vegas, but little did I know that’s exactly what was going to happen. My aunt ended up needing to use a week of her time share by the end of April. She allowed me to use the week and I was off, Chasing Joy in Las Vegas in your mid 30s.
I love Las Vegas. I have not been to Disney yet. So, so far Las Vegas is the most fun place I’ve ever been. The last time I was there I went for Blogalicious. This time I went to have fun and to check out of real life (life without mom) for a few days. Being a little older since the last time I was in Vegas I made a few observations about what it is like Chasing Joy in Las Vegas in your mid 30s.
When you are Chasing Joy in Las Vegas in your mid 30s you are:
- young enough to party in the club with 20 year olds and get hit on.
- too old to know the words to half the songs they play in the club. However, you will know the songs beats and most of the hooks.
- more comfortable at a lounge/ bar with a good DJ, room to dance, and most importantly a place to sit.
- old enough to hold your liquor and not have a hangover.
- young enough where the influence of said liquor can get you into some trouble with the aforementioned guys from the club. But what happens in Vegas… right? LOL!
- mature enough so that hangovers are not an issue but, getting to bed after daybreak comes with a similar physical downside minus the nausea and dizziness.
- young enough to let loose and have some much needed fun.
- mature enough to qualify for a truly awesome deal on a timeshare.
- mature enough to not make such a deal because… the way my bank account is set up…
- able to vacation with a nice enough budget to fit in a few comedy and Cirque Du Soleli shows.
- mature enough to know you can not party your problems away. However, vacation is a fun and necessary break from reality. I suggest you schedule one soon.
When was your last get away? Were you able to really let loose and have fun? Have you visited Las Vegas in your mid 30s? Tell me about your experience.
