Everywhere I go lately, I hear people talking about hitting 30 and what they’re planning to do when that happens. I met two of my friends at the weekend who will be 30 along with me and we talked about how to celebrate it then someone at work is planning a holiday for her boyfriend’s birthday and then Nicole write a post about what she’s trying to achieve before she reaches the milestone.
I suppose 30 is the next big birthday after 16, 18 and 21 so everyone wants to celebrate in style. But it’s also an age where you are truly an adult and you’re at the age when you’re expected to do grown up things like get married and start a family so it’s seen as a landmark moment in life.
I feel a bit strange about hitting 30 in 2013. When I was younger it seemed so old but now I still feel like I’m 16! I don’t want to get too stuck in completing certain goals before this landmark ad it’ll only make me feel like a failure if I don’t hit them by then but I do want to recognise the importance of the birthday and do something I’ll remember for it.
What did you do or what are you planning to do to celebrate being 30?
