Almost 30.

It's happening this year, y'all. In less than six months, I'll be 30. And while the number is a little scary, I'm fine with it. I'm in a great place, and I love my life. However, upon reading "30 Signs You're Almost 30" on buzzfeed, I did start to feel a little old.  Some examples...

5. You start a story with “when I was in college” and realize that was 10 years ago.

7. You’ve gone to a bar and left because it was too loud.

9. You’ve become a sunscreen nazi.

12. You’re seriously thinking about getting a dog. No, having a baby. No, definitely getting a dog.

15. You’ve definitely lost the enzyme that lets you digest Taco Bell.

16. There’s an increasing number of musical artists you haven’t even heard of.

17. Every night you’re like:

21. Teen slang makes you viscerally angry.

24. Weekend nights: Instead of having two drinks at four different bars, you have two drinks at one bar then go home.  If that...

Although, with the exception of considering a dog/baby/dog and college being so long ago, all of these could have applied to me at 20 years old.  So, maybe turning 30 really won't be that big of a deal for me!


  1. These make me laugh....especially because I am still a few years off from 30 but many of them still apply!!

  2. Yep. These are all true of me. I loved that list. And I don't care if that makes me "old." My 30s have been pretty awesome (outside of the whole professional aspect ... but I think even that's going to be awesome someday).

  3. This is hilarious - the Taco Bell one made me laugh. And the music one is SO Nate. He doesn't get all this "new music" anymore, haha

  4. I read this last night on buzzfeed and was snickering. So true!!!

  5. Haha, I saw this on Facebook and related WAY too much to it! My favorite was about siding with the parents on sitcoms and TV shows... I was like: SO TRUE!!!


  6. I have to tell you...while I am much older than you obviously....30 was my favorite. I had an absolute blast. I was terrified of it. I cried for like a month before and then it came and I had a month long celebration! I think I had 4 parties. People gave me a surprise party. Everyone made me feel special. It was amazing. My 30's were way better than my 20's and I have to say that all in all, I don't think I would do 20 again if I could. Not really.
