15 Things to Start Doing By the Time You’re 30—Jesse Carey
Good stuff here from RELEVANT.
First off, nothing magical happens when you turn 30.
That sounds dumb, but it’s worth mentioning. The word thirties hangs over most of us like a solemn marker of adulthood, as if you’ll wake up on your 30th birthday with wizened eyes and a headful of sage wisdom.
