By 30, you should have...

This article was published in Glamour Magazine. It caught my eye, since it's talking about girls in their late 20s early 30s. For all you fellow bloggers, maybe you can relate?

* Typo error--spelled Fiance' wrong above but bec I made that in Photoshop, and I already emptied my trash, I cannot fix the error cept to type it down here and let y'all know I mean fiance' not finace! lol
By 30, you should know ...
1. How to fall in love without losing yourself. (Check!)
2. How you feel about having kids. (Yes, but I've always said, I must be married, and with SOME money in the bank!) 
3. How to quit a job, break up with a man, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship. (check, check, and sadly most confrontations with so called "Friends" usually do end or did end up with ruining the friendship!)
4. When to try harder and when to walk away.
5. How to kiss in a way that communicates perfectly what you would and wouldn’t like to happen next. What?
6. The names of the secretary of state, your great-grandmothers, and the best tailor in town. 
( 0-3 here eek) 
7. How to live alone, even if you don’t like to. (I've mastered this!) 
8. Where to go -- be it your best friend’s kitchen table or a yoga mat -- when your soul needs soothing.
9. That you can’t change the length of your legs, the width of your hips, or the nature of your parents. (duh no brainer) 
10. That your childhood may not have been perfect, but it’s over. 
(that happened for me the day my mother passed away)
11. What you would and wouldn’t do for money or love.
12. That nobody gets away with smoking, drinking, doing drugs, or not flossing for very long.
13. Who you can trust, who you can’t, and why you shouldn’t take it personally.
14. Not to apologize for something that isn’t your fault.
15. Why they say life begins at 30

What's on your personal list of things to have and know -- and possibly do -- before turning 30?



  1. Thanks for sharing. I just turned 30 this month and though I might not be where I thought I would be at 30, I know that the best is yet to come!

  2. Loved this!! And I am still a little while from 30 but I can actually say that I have a decide amount of these checked off my list as well!!


  3. What a fun list! I'm like you and couldn't imagine going back to any of my ex BFs! My husband completely blows them out of the water.

    even though I am not close to 30 yet.. but I know that they say 30 are the best years!!!

  5. I love this! Thanks for posting! :)

  6. I read this article! I love your post, too!

  7. i read this too, some of it's great and some of it's still hard. but i have 2 more years to learn! LOL

  8. this is an AWESOME post my friend...very thought provoking, too (even for this tired mamma--haha).
    on my 30 "bucket list", i want to own my own business, travel to italy, and run a marathon

  9. Thanks for sharing this! Now I want to read the article!

  10. Love this list. I agree with you on the friend thing, confronting usually ends up ending the friendship. You are so pretty and creative, I love seeing the artwork you create with your students! cacutie333.blogspot.com

  11. I saw this article and totally agree with it!

  12. I would add - traveled to a place where life is very different from yours - urban, rural, poverty, wealth, etc. and explored what those differences mean to you.
