I'm turning 30 in about two weeks. I feel pretty accomplished, but at the same time I feel like I've missed out on a lot of things. Any thoughts you can share that you wish you knew/had learned by the time you reached this age? [more inside]
I wrote in earlier about being engaged 4 times by 30. The advice was amazing and I did end up calling it off and breaking up. However, now I am terrified. Of being alone, maybe not having kiddos one day, and wondering if I will ever get married to a partner. [more inside]
I am a 30 year old woman engaged for the fourth time. Sometimes I am sad, sometimes I am happy, but mostly I feel ambivalent. Seeing that this is the 4th time in a decade with no marriage to show...am I with the wrong person, am I a marriage-phobe deep down inside, have unrealistic love expectations, or do I just continually make poor decisions? Basically, I need help and wonder what you think or if you have advice/anecdotes. Snowflake details inside. [more inside]

After recommendations from friends, I've just recently discovered 30 Rock. I started watching from Season 1, Episode 1. Turns out I love the show. But here's the problem: I'm in a place in my life with very little time to dedicate to TV. So while I want to be caught up so I can watch the most recent episodes and talk about them with friends, there's no way I can watch all of the episodes. So, MeFi - what are the must-watch 30 Rock episodes? I've Googled around, but would love your opinions.
Please give me some hope. [more inside]

I need to enhance facial detail in a 70 year old B&W 120 negative. The negative is both underexposed and out of focus. I am using PS Elements 3.0. I also have Photoshop 7. I will be using a Canoscan 8400F scanner. I can go to a local pro and have the negative scanned on his Epson V750 for $$$$$ if needed. What are good texts that can explain the mechanics of image enhancement? Any advantage in upgrading Elements? My computer does not have an internet connection and I do not need any of the net connected features that seem to be the reasons for upgrading Elements. I can also live with the 3.0 poor cataloging.
