A lot of my friends have already turned 30 and none of them have gone through any sort of big change. It's true, they all mourned for some amount of time about no longer being in their 20s. But no one ran out to get botox, get the tattoo they all thought they should have got when they were 23, or dated someone wayyyy younger as an act of rebellion. Maybe this means my friends are boring...or maybe it means that 30 ain't no thing.
I can't see myself changing much about my life after I turn 30. Earlier this year, I admit, I thought about a tattoo to mark the occasion. Then I changed my mind and decided I would look at a new piece of jewelry. Now, I'm thinking that celebrating another year of life with good friends, food and wine is all I really need to mark the big day. Yes, I do feel a bit more pressure to maintain my current appearance, but other than that, I want to keep taking one day at a time, because, if anything, turning one year older helps you realize that life is too short to not enjoy.
Also...these celebrities who turned or are turning 30 this year seem to be doing well, so 30 can't be all that bad!
Goodbye twenties, bring it on 30!!!
