It’s my birthday today! I’m turning the big three-oh.
Rather than approach this next decade with fear, I’ve just been thinking a lot about getting older. And how getting older will (or should) shape my behavior.
Some random things about turning 30 that have crossed my mind?
Spoiler alert, it’s nothing of any substance.
I’ve been thinking ultra-important things like, how much longer can I have long hair? At some point do my long locks start to be inappropriate? How much longer can I wear my ‘On Fleek’ Sweatshirt before I become that woman that people roll their eyes at? ‘What does she think, that she’s a teenager?” they will whisper amongst themselves.
Can I still wear black leggings in public? Side note, should anyone wear black leggings in public? That’s beside the point though. I have to admit, I wear black leggings on the regular. Now that I’m thirty, do I need to put my bum away and switch to harem pants? Are harem pants too young for me? Oh man.
As you can see, these are all very important thoughts.
Now I know that everything I mentioned above can be brushed away with the argument that everyone should be able to act and dress as they please. And I completely agree with that. But let’s be serious, the truth is that judgements are passed on older people who act younger than their stated age.
What are your thoughts? Are there things that become less appropriate as we get older? Am I just being ridiculous?
Here are some other things I’m loving…
