If you're on the cusp of 30, and people are telling you to keep calm while inside your head is a monkey clashing cymbals together chanting 'you're running out of time', here is my list for the good things about being in your 30s.
The time has finally come for me to wave goodbye to my 20s. I would be lying if I said I was completely on board with the idea. However in the spirit of being a proper grown up, I'm trying not to scream "Why, God, why? We had a deal! Let the others grow old, not me" like Joey did in Friends.
