30 thoughts I’m having about approaching 30

30 thoughts about turning 30

I’m 30 in a few months and it’s killing me. I cannot believe my age. I do not feel like an adult. I mean, 30 isn’t even a new adult. It’s rather deep into adult. I’m like, a professional adult. Or something. But I don’t feel like one at all. Let’s take yesterday, for example. I drank way too much the night before, slept in my clothes and makeup, didn’t get out of bed until 5pm after spending all day being busy trying not to die. I thought I’d get over that kind of behaviour years ago. Nope.

So here are some of the thoughts I’m having about heading into my 30’s.

30 thoughts about turning 30

  1. Wait, what? How did this happen? I’m too young for this!
  2. I’m never having kids, am I?
  3. Is it still acceptable for me to drink during the week? LOLOLOL Like I’ll ever stop that.
  4. Are my hangovers going to get worse?
  5. Should I save up for a mortgage or go back to Florida for a few weeks?
  6. When I was a kid, 30 year olds looked SO OLD. Is that what kids see when they look at me? Ew.
  7. How much longer can I pull off long hair?
  8. It’s cool that I still watch Pokemon, right?
  9. And play Minecraft. On a shared server. With 12 year old American boys.
  10. Seeing as I can no longer con a man into loving me using my fresh as a daisy young looks, I guess I best work on this shit personality of mine.
  11. I’m going to die alone.
  12. I should lower my standards when it comes to men.
  13. No wait, I can get some cats and lots of Spiced Rum! Screw you, sucky men!
  14. At least I get attention on social media. I don’t need no man.
  15. I hope I don’t turn into one of those people that watches soaps ever night. EW EASTENDERS!
  16. But I’d happily get back into Hollyoaks.
  17. If I don’t have kids, it’s probably something I’ll regret as I’m turning 40.
  18. I wonder if I should adopt in a few years.
  19. LOL who am I kidding, nobody is going hand over a small human for me to try and grow.
  20. I just remembered about the time I killed 2 cactus. I should forget about kids. And pets.
  21. Is it weird like I still spend most evenings in my room on my computer. Just like when I was a teenager?
  22. I should make more effort with ironing. Or something like that.
  23. Is it okay that I still find poo jokes funny? POO EMOJI FTW.
  24. I wonder if people think it’s creepy I’ve been single for so long. I mean, I am creepy. But I just hope people don’t know that I am. It’s kinda embarrassing that the more men get to know me the less they like me lolz.
  25. I’m fuming that I still have teen acne and I’ll be getting the wrinkles soon.
  26. At what point am I classed as a mature blogger?
  27. Ohhhh shit.
  28. I have no idea how to celebrate. Do I even want to celebrate?
  29. When I was younger, I thought I’d totally have my life together when I’m thirty. Jesus, I’m a right mess.
  30. Will the transformation hurt?

    Haha I love this! I always think about how much longer I can pull off long hair before I’m going to have to cut it for ever and ever because I’m too old haha. I always wonder when I’m actually going to feel as old as I am but I guess probably never!

    Age is nothing but a number is how you feel and if you do not feel 30 than be it. Unfortunaately children think 25 years old is old lol so it really does not matter we all felt the same at that age.

    These are all good thoughts I have a lot of these most of the time haha Especially the kids thinking I’m old and weird like no kids you are the weird ones OKAY! haha I don’t think theres anything wrong with getting older and I don’t think it matters what age you are we all have no clue what we are doing but thats the fun part! haha 😀

      Co-signed! Hangovers are definitely worse, but for me, everything else got better. I got to the point where I stopped worrying about what everyone else was thinking and doing and just did what I wanted! Since turning 30, I got my first passport, traveled to 11 countries on four continents, and moved abroad. I finished a Master’s degree, changed career fields, then left that one to focus on writing. 30 is when everything started being awesome! Welcome to the club 🙂

    I was having same thoughts when I turned 30. I still don’t feel like 30, sometimes I’m like a total kid and I don’t really mind. When I was a kid 30 was a big thing, it was old and now I am 30, I hate to think that many will think 30 is old! I has my life planned when I was a teenager, by 30 I would be married, have a good job and at least one kid, now when I look at it nothing happened the way I imagined it to be. I still watch cartoons and animation films are one of my favourite things to watch 🙂 x

    I’m turning 30 this summer but don’t really stess out over it. It’s way whorse that my stepkid it turning ten next year, then I will be old for real. And I get a bit stressed over the fact that we can’t have another kid if I don’t sort my mental health problems out beacuse I kind of think I want a little one as well, and I want it before the one we have turns into a teen for real.
    And the fact that I never have had a full time job stresses me out a lot. Like who will ever give me a chance at this age?

    I hope you get kids if you want them and that they like pokemon and harry potter. And that you find someone to love that isn’t way to anoying. I think that if I manage to find someone worth to keep everyone can. XO

    I’m 27, 30 seems way too close already so I get how you feel. I also still watch Pokemon and play Minecraft (hope that makes you feel better). I personally don’t want kids but that doesn’t stop society thinking that I should have a house, a husband and a hoard of kids by now. I still feel like I’m 18! =^-^=

    i’m still in my early/mid-20s (i mean, i don’t know if 23 is early or mid, such an awkward number!) and some of these are definitely thoughts i’ve been having too! apparently when i was really little i said i thought everyone who was over 12 was an adult, so according to young laura we all should’ve been adulting and having our lives together for a long time now, haha! really though, as long as you’re happy, i don’t think you need to be the kind of adult you thought everyone would be at this point or have your life more ‘together’ 🙂 xxx

  • Jodie

    This one had me in stitches, Corinne! I’m “only” 24 but I’m already having some of these thoughts! #25 = my life right now. How can it be possible to have both teen skin problems AND adult skin problems at the same time?!
