Are You Ready For Your 30s?
Are You Ready For Your 30s?
YAAASSSSS! Surprised? Don’t be! You’ve lived your 20s to their fullest, so you’re totally ready to move on to bigger, better, and more wine-induced things. You’ll love the next decade. It will be just like your 20s except your friends will bring babies to things.
Like a near-empty pint of ice cream, you’ve used up the majority of your 20s. Get excited for the next chapter in your life! You’re READY.
You’ve dabbled in the stereotypical twentysomething life, but you haven’t quite dived all the way in. Before you hit 30, you might want to consider indulging in your youth a little bit more. Sleep through a few more alarms! You deserve it!
You’ve had your fair share of wild nights, dull days, and eye-opening existential crises, but there’s still a lot more to come. Don’t panic if you’re nearing the end of your 20s — you can do all of this stuff in your 30s too. Plus, you can get away with going home before midnight.
You’re probably thinking about your 20s, “Get me out of here!” You don’t abide by twentysomething stereotypes, and it’s likely you won’t abide by thirtysomething stereotypes either. Honestly, you’re prepared for anything.
