    I'll be 30 next year. I'm going to be 30 next year.

    Dear all,

    1. I'll be 30 next year.
    2. I'm going to be 30 next year.

    Between #1 and #2, which do you normally use?

    #1 seems to be the majority, but #2 is not very few.

    OP

    I would use and accept either.

    Really, ems? I'd have put you at nearer 40.

    I can't imagine what makes you think that! Still, it was a nice dream for a few hours of this thread.
