Things You Should Give Up By The Age Of 30 Part 1

June 1, 2016


It’s hard to determine when you have to give up the whole Peter Pan nonsense and start behaving like an adult, but let’s face it – by the time you’re 30, some things just don’t cut it anymore.

Those behavioral stupidities didn’t quite make any sense earlier in your life as well, but you got away with them because, well, you were in your twenties and no one really expected you to do anything remotely adult-like. However, with hitting the 30th age mark, you should ditch these couple of things you used to (not) do.

Healthy Hazard Bathrooms

How does anyone get away with a dirty bathroom, we don’t know, but that nastiness should definitely stop.

Your apartment isn’t a rock club and there’s no place for health-threatening bacteria and fungi in it.

Unless you really want to be quarantined sometime in the near future, you should revise your hygiene habits and start scrubbing.

You might as well just torch the whole place since it’s probably easier.

Mixing Liquor

Sorry, but your liver isn’t made out of steel anymore. What was once easy to accomplish (like drinking every type of liquor imaginable in an hour), now presents imminent danger. Your body needs you to take care of it. When you set your mind on getting completely wasted, at least stick to one alcohol genre and taste palette for the whole night. No cocktails that have more than one type of liquor, either. Sorry, Carrie Bradshaw.

Plastic Plants

If you don’t have the time and energy to water a plant once or twice a week, just don’t have one. Fake plants don’t look great at all and you’re not fooling anyone. If you think that your apartment would look better with a potted friend, do some research – you’re bound to find a plant that will be happy in your apartment’s natural light and with your ability to take care of it.

Cooking Level: Ramen

Ramen noodles are for students – they’re quick to make and cheap as it gets. However, by the time you’re 30, you really should be eating something that’s at least a bit more nutritional than your pet rock. Learn how to cook for yourself, eat healthier and actually enjoy the whole process. Life isn’t a box of ramen noodles, you know.

“I Have Too Much Free Time” Facial Hair Styles

By the dreaded 30th birthday, you should already be a made man, who doesn’t need unusual facial hair to stand out and show the world just how awesome you are. If you’re interesting, it will shine through even if you have a clean shave. On the other hand, if you have the charisma of a paper holder there’s no amount of hair in any shape or form that will make people think otherwise.
