Getting older has it’s pro’s and con’s. For example although you are now clearly over 18 and don’t struggle getting served at the bar anymore, you kinda just can’t be bothered going out anyway.
We have had a think and put together our top 30 things that start to happen as you approach the ripe old age of 30.
#1 If it’s past 8 at night and you’re not already out, you are likely NOT going out.
#2 Seeing these signs make you officially feel like a fossil.
#3 You realize college was 10 YEARS AGO.
#4 Hangovers not only last longer, but INTENSIFY as the day progresses.
#5 Celebrity kids are now grown up – Britney now has a 9-year-old and an 8-year-old.
#6 You finally realize that it’s always worth it to pay more for the direct flight.
#7 Comfortable shoes become attractive.

#10 Every party you go to now has at least one baby!
#11 Your childhood toys are now selling at vintage stores.
