Turning 30 years old is a significant accomplishment. It means the three stupidest decades of your life are over, and you can finally start being a real adult with an actual frontal cortex. While most 20-year-olds are in similar life situations (having horrible service jobs, slugging through college, praying their fake ID won’t get taken away), one 30-year-old can be in a very different place in life than the next. Some people are married, own a house, and have three kids by age thirty. I’m 22, and I don’t have faith I’ll be able to accomplish one of those things by the time I’m 30.
A couple of days ago, wealth influencer @SteveOnSpeed posted on Twitter, “By age 30, you should have a group of friends that talk business, money, and fitness, not politics and pop culture.” This sparked a series of tweets by people making fun of the absurd statement.
