Thirty, you can no longer get away with shit you could in your twenties. You have lived and learned and bullshit excuses don't fly regardless if they are to yourself or others.

The one I just passed--40. That's the first one where I really felt "different." 18 was a complete diappointment and started the worst year of my life; 21 meant nothing to me because I don't drink; 29 set off my biological clock which I absolutely hated; and all of my 30's felt like my teen years turned upside down, especially because I was sick from an autoimmune disease during most of them. 40 really hit me hard--for the first time, I actually feel "grown," and feel both a lot of regrets plus can see opportunities for the rest of my life. I think my 30s would have been easier if I'd been married and had kids, but then I'll never know. One thing I do love about 40 is I have a lot more freedom than a lot of other women my age--loneliness is the price I pay for that however.

discoflux said...

The first one after you're dead.

According to HWOOD standards, once a female hits 40 she's trading material - expired goods - time to get the newer bimbo blow up model

Except that what those moron males that set these "standards" haven't figured out ---- they're just as "expired"

Pip said...

Most Americans are drinking long before 21. They just get other people to buy the alcohol.

I'm only 27, but I have noticed as time goes by, I give less of a shit about what others think of me. That's pretty cool, imo!

Count Jerkula said...

Chris is correct. 30 is when you can't pretend you are a kid any more.

2nd most significant is 50, cause that is when you can't pretend you are not old.

Trilby said...

+1

RowdyRodimus said...

18 or 21 and also for anyone interested, just got word from a friend that Stacie Kiebler has just delivered her baby girl. Congrats to the new mom.

Everyone's suffering is unique to them, but I do know how it feels to lose years of your life in illness. I spent five years in my bedroom, many days never leaving my bed, and I saw and spoke only to my doctor and my mum.
I'm now 31-years-old, but in terms of experience I may as well be 23. Sometimes, I look at my peers and feel as though I've been left behind.
But it's only when a person truly hits rock bottom that they find out what what reserves of strength they have.
Please give yourself a big hug from me.

Sherry said...

I too like that as I've gotten older I has less fucks to give. Wish I felt this way earlier because I could have conquered the world.

60's gonna hit me hard!

25 and 30 were big years for me.

Rosso said...

I'd say your actual birth coz then you actually exist & then just your kid birthdays, ages 0-10. I didn't care about any of my teenage birthdays or 21, 25 or even 30.

If anything I felt guilt-tripped by people around me to try & pretend I cared about those birthdays coz apparently it's supposed to be a big deal. All societal pressure imo, like weddings, you *have* to throw a party, you *have* to do this & that. Blah blah.

Rosso said...

Actually I'll add on the later birthdays like 75+ & hope you're all in good health by then coz that is quite a nice acheivement to get that far & still be doing well. Embrace the good fortune if you reach any of the birthdays after 70s & you're still in relatively good health & mindset.

LT said...

21 and 50

as much as I hate parties, I expect a party when I turn 50!!!

sugarbread maker said...

I know exactly how you feel. . Have lost many years to illness I can't get back. Trying to get better. Slowly.

Unknown said...

I just turned 50 and have noticed a lot of physical changes that never happened at any other age. Except maybe 12/13. Everything is a lot harder and slower and I've done nothing different! Still active and healthy but don't have the same moves!

michelelala said...

Turning Fuck It Fourty. I felt very liberated.

40. My mother was friends with Princess Grace of Monaco, and when Grace turned 40 she told my mother that "Life really DOES begin at 40!" I decided that if GRACE KELLY's life began at 40, then mine had to be looking up, too. 40 was a great year!
