So I Turned 30. It’s Not Scary.

Life doesn’t end at 25.

Yep, we got ourselves started young. Now having turned 30, I for sure don’t wish further fine lines forming on my face. I’ll do what I can to prevent them from deepening. One alcoholic drink or less is my new monthly standard and I couldn’t care less about getting hammered at a bar or club.

We get a clean slate every day. We don’t need to wait for the date to change.

There’s no rush in life. I believe we spend time to our best ability. We look for tools that help us work better and waste less time, such as Focusmate, or browser extensions that stop you from scrolling on distracting websites. We set goals we try to accomplish and celebrate when we do.

Comparing your circumstances and abilities to someone else who probably wants different things than you does not make sense. I don’t care anymore about this idea that by 30, you should be settled. My terms of settling will look different than yours.
