This year, I will be greeting my mid-thirties – and I’d be lying if I said I was really excited about it. Turning thirty was fun, but each year after that has been a little less fun. Why? Not because I’m getting older (age comes with wisdom, money and knowledge, right?!), but because my lifestyle and interests have drastically changed from when I was younger. I thought it would be fun to take a closer look at my life differences between twenty and thirty years old.
In my 20’s, A great night consisted of lots of friends, drinks, and climbing in to bed long after midnight.
In my 30’s, A great night consists of my couch, my husband, a Diet Coke, my dog and Netflix with a bedtime long before midnight.
In my 20’s, my favorite drink was anything fruity with Rum.
In my 30’s, I appreciate a good glass of wine.
In my 20’s, my favorite places to shop were Forever 21, Express, Wet Seal and Maurices.
In my 3o’s, my favorite places to shop are Homegoods, Target, Crate and Barrel and Loft.
In my 2o’s, a standard meal included pizza, pasta, bread and something fried.
In my 30’s, I have to eat fruit and vegetables to not get a stomachache!
In my 20’s, it was normal to go to bed at 5:00 am.
In my 30’s, it’s normal wake up at 5:00 am.
In my 20’s, I would nap or shop in my free time.
In my 30’s, I blog, read or clean in my free time.
In my 20’s, my best friends were the girls that lived in my dorm, were in my sorority and people I met through them.
In my 3o’s, my best friends are the same girls. I guess some things don’t change afterall!
How are your preferences different than they were five or ten years ago? It’s amazing how we are always changing and evolving!
