    30 is the new 70. It's time to play bingo and talk endlessly about bodily functions.

    Smile Life Tasks in the East and West

    In the literate West, our life tasks before 30 were to become financially and emotionally independent of our parents by establishing our own household and having our own children. By contrast in the spoken cultures of the East, parents were venerated and we remained dependent on them all our lives.

    But as the West is now moving into the electronic spoken culture, children are reluctant to leave home. And as the East is becoming literate, we are now starting to establish individual households.

    They told me East is East and West is West and ne'er the twain shall meet. But now East is moving West and West is moving East. And so our life tasks before 30 are moving too.

    My "OH MY GOD IM ABOUT TO TURN THIRTY WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?!!!" resulted in me throwing in a really good job and going back to uni.

    Doing something you've always put off because you've had other responsibilities (Like TK and being married) would be an awesome thing to do before you turn 30. The road trip idea with iwakar is also excellent. I hope you find lots of awesome fulfilling thigns to do. Be a little selfish for once, bugger it, you only turn 30 once.

    Also by ex broke up with my days before my 30th, so i had to do all my stuff for a 31st LOL.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    Update: I have secured plans to take a trip up north visit some old friends and swim with dolphins. Go hang gliding. And a trip with another friend that may or may not happen, and the destination is as of yet unspecified. If I don't die, it should be a fun month!

    Feels like my life is half over. Which it actually is if you calculate the dissension of energy and efficiency as you get into your later years. The time spent actually living is equalized and I have probably about the same amount of applied time left.

    I actually didn't mind turning 30; turning 25, and my mid-20's, sucked way more than my 30's so far. I spent most of my 20's being melancholy and trying to figure crap out, so I'm actually quite relieved to have put that period behind me. I've done WAY more since turning 30 than I did in my 20's. I also feel much more solid as a person.

    Anyway, I made it a point to do something fun/different for my 30th b-day, so as to not be focusing on turning 30, or being by myself on that day and moping. I think the act of turning 30 also served as a bit of a wakeup call/impetus to get my life in order and make my life how I wanted it to be. It's always going to be a bit of a work-in-progress and constantly evolving thing -- life -- but again, I'm so fricking relieved to be done with my 20's.

    To the OP and generally speaking - I tend to think/view life in this way: within reason and ability-level, it's never too late to do something. So, latch onto opportunities if they come your way, or create them/work towards them, and pepper your life with experiences that you want!

    Turning 30 is over rated, IMHO. Mind you my twenties were pretty eventful, so I can't complain. I did want to publish a book before I was 30, and that's about the only thing I didn't achieve on my personal to do list. I did decide, finally, what I want to do with my life though. It's taken me three years to impliment the first steps but it's all good.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    Yeah 30s are the time where you can take all your life experience and get some real stuff done... that's the theory anyway.

    One of my favorite musicians is Bill Withers. His music career started when he was 32, before that he was in the Navy had never performed in front of a crowd. Robert Heinlein was 32 when he had his first story published.
