    30 Signs You're Almost 30

    Saw this pop up from a few friends on Facebook and thought I'd post it here, since I think it's a decent demographic on the site (I'll be 31 in a few months).

    30 Signs You're Almost 30

    Number 5 definitely was a stunning realization for me.

    #15 was big for me. For years now I've kept Tums in my car and in my desk at work.

    Re: 30 Signs You're Almost 30

    Nearly none of those apply to me.

    Either 26 isn't close enough, or I'm just too immature. (Probably a combination of both)

    most of them don't apply to me. The ones that do apply, applied even when I was IN college (like the hostel one).

    31. You continue to get a ****-load of hair on your ears. You can't trim it fast enough.

    Re: 30 Signs You're Almost 30

    Hmmmmmmm a few of those applied and I do not know how to feel about that. But I've almost always wanted to "not do things" when I get home at night.

    And my fb is evenly split between drunk party pics and baby pics, thank you very much!

    Re: 30 Signs You're Almost 30

    The getting carded one doesn't really apply to me - I still get carded. I recently started rocking a beard, which made a few less people card me, but on the whole, I almost always have to pull out my ID when buying booze.

    Re: 30 Signs You're Almost 30

    Anyone that didn't have a 2 day hangover before 30 wasn't partying hard enough.

    I have to laugh at articles like this that make it sound like being 30 is old. If people are whining this much about 30 how much will they whine when they hit 50 ?


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    #16 was my moment. And you know fewer and fewer as time goes on, until your kids are teenyboppers.

    I think a lot of more due to your job than your age. Get a couple beers in me Saturday night or Sunday afternoon, and I feel 20 all over again.

    No kidding. I was just getting ready to post, "Wait until you hit 40 and think back to how young you were at 30."
