30 Things That Are Awesome About Being 30
Never fear, becoming a (sorta) grown-up is actually pretty great.
You've established your personal style.
But you're flexible enough to try something new once in a while.
But you can still push them from time to time.
You know how to keep your living space decently clean.
But you can still let things slide when you feel like it.
People actually come to you for advice.
But you're not too old to ask for advice yourself.
You're experienced enough to know when something is overpriced.
And when you shouldn't skimp.
You're old enough to decide you're just not going to read "Moby Dick."
People look up to you.
But you still have role models too.
You know how to treat yourself.
And how to brighten someone else's day.
You've learned how to say you're sorry.
And how to stand your ground when you know you're right.
You know what you like.
And you're not ashamed of it.
You no longer have to eat things you hate.
Or hang out with people who don't make you happy.
But you can still make new friends.
And try new things.
You're no longer embarrassed by most drugstore purchases.
You know how to shop for clothes that actually fit.
How to keep track of your important papers.
How to pay your taxes.
And how to prepare a basic meal.
But you still have so much to learn.
Being 30 is cause for celebration!
