16 Tiny Miracles Only Thirtysomethings Can Appreciate

It's the little things, y'know?

Posted on

1. Drinking more than two drinks and waking up without a hangover.

::wakes up to head not throbbing:: Thank you, Lord.

2. Eating pizza and not having your acid reflux kick in.

No Pepcid no problem.

3. Only being invited to ONE wedding during the summer.

And it's nearby? Double score!

4. Seeing a band from your youth that still rocks.

And they played the hits! Could it get any better?

5. Staying up late and not feeling tired the next morning.

Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on seven hours sleep? I'll take it.

6. Bingeing on junk food and STILL fitting into your skinny jeans.

How you ask? Must've been that falling star you wished on.

7. Having a birthday and not feeling old and sad about it.

I actually feel pretty good being 34, thank you very much.

8. Informing someone that you're single and not getting the third degree about it.

Nobody is asking why you haven't settled down yet ? Wow, this is a first.

9. Going on Facebook and not seeing a million engagement announcements and/or new baby photos.

I mean, good for them, but it's nice not having your newsfeed clogged with that stuff from time to time.

10. Mentioning an old movie to a young co-worker and finding out that they've seen it.

"Wait, you've seen Big Trouble in Little China? And you're 22?! There is hope for the world!"

11. Correctly using slang without embarrassing yourself.

For real doe.

12. Not being called "ma'am" or "sir" by someone younger than you.

Especially if it's a day where you're feeling less than youthful.

13. Being invited to go out at a reasonable hour, say 7 p.m., or so.

"Your birthday party starts at 11 p.m.? Uh... how about I just send you a card?"

14. Getting carded when you least expect it.

"You need to see my ID? Bless you, young man."

15. Going wine tasting and actually drinking in moderation.

Usually you're drunk after the first stop, but this time you actually want to enjoy the wine and not simply get shitfaced.

16. Getting a day off with no errands to run, no one to see, and actually having time to yourself.

Because your thirties are one of the busiest times in your life, so a little "me time" is always, ALWAYS, a tiny miracle.
