Being 30 has blown my mind in many ways. Chief among them, I feel I have aged out of free Slurpee day at 7/11.
My time has become precious as I am busy with other things like, work, getting to and from work, and getting so sweaty in yoga that drops of sweat sometimes get into my eyes when I do an inversion. Oh boy, does that sting. I am too busy to wait in a line.
With some pounds to lose, it isn’t worth the empty calories and it breaks my dirty ketoaquarian diet. Not to mention I am slightly too old to walk around with a neon blue tongue. Though, I am not perfect, I walk around with red hot Cheeto dust fingers from to-to-time.
Even though I know single use plastics are far from a leading cause of Climate Change, I want to avoid the disapproving glares of people riding electric Scooters around Santa Monica, CA. I don’t want to be known as the lady (once again, 30) who used a plastic lid and flaunted it publicly. The nerve it would take to be that lady, and I, I am a coward.
Mostly, though, I have started to wear white and that is not the sort of concoction someone who has their shit together enough to wear a white shirt would drink.

I’ve taken to wearing dark colours and washing my clothes more frequently.
I mean, this is good advice
Very funny. Loved this.
Very true! I’m 46 and just had this revelation. 😅
Aged out at 30? What kind of a bullshit policy is that? You age people out at 12, or you give it to all ages, dammit! Oh well, it did take me till 48 to age out of the army (not that I wanted to go back in at any time since I left, but we’re not talking about me), but that is not the same thing. Enjoy wearing white. I was wearing white last night and got red wine stains on it.
hahah this is fiction, though I do enjoy wearing white t-shirts
I made it 2 more years than you, but this year was the first time I didn’t go. I don’t drive past a 7-11 on my way to and from work anymore and the idea of making a special trip was awful.
I feel you, I am burned out on driving in general
