Who let me into my thirties? I’m not ready for this.
The adage that no one ever feels like an adult, and that we’re all just tall imposters, is totally true, isn’t it? Is there ever a time when you actually start to feel like a grown-up? I still run to my mom when I get sick or sad, so I’m pretty sure I’m not there yet.

I had a moment like this recently when my brother asked what I’d do in a household emergency (flooding washing machine etc) and my response was: “Call mum and dad?” It wasn’t my proudest moment and actually gave me the kick I needed to start getting contingency plans something like organised.
I didn’t even answer with “ask Mr. Juniper”, I automatically said “mum and dad”.
Best thing about your thirties is that it turns into your forties and by then you just don’t give a crap about feeling like an adult.
I’m around too many teenagers to feel like an imposter adult.
Welcome to your dirty thirties. And I still want my mom when I’m sick.
I’ve been in my thirties since last year. I think I’m reassessing my lack of adultiness because I’ll be 31 relatively soon.
