30 Things Every Woman Should Quit Doing By 30

utterly stolen from madge

  1. Buying clothes from the junior section. (up until a year ago, is till bought clothes from the children's section at target. but now my ass is too big.)
  2. Forgetting her parents’ birthdays. (never! though i often stop to remember which is first - they are both in june.)
  3. Making out with her BFFs at bars for attention. (i like laid back and casual bars. i hate the bars where 30-somethings are trying to reclaim their 20s - it's so pathetic.)
  4. Making out with her boyfriend at bars for attention. (really?)
  5. Filling her bed with stuffed animals.
  6. Carrying a torch for anyone she hasn’t seen in the last five years.
  7. Rebelling against her parents for the sake of rebelling against her parents. (i don't think i ever rebelled. hm.)
  8. Declaring an entire gender “all jerks.”
  9. Holding a grudge against anyone who wronged her in high school. (i will never forgive justin l. for being total racist jerk.)
  10. Skipping regular gyno exams.
  11. Going to bed without washing and moisturizing her face. (if i skip this, i break out like crazy.)
  12. Being “that person” who had a bit too much to drink at the office party.
  13. Crushing on Justin Bieber.
  14. Thinking she’s got it all figured out.
  15. Calling her father “daddy.” (ewwwwwww.)
  16. Engaging in sibling rivalry.
  17. Trying to get by on her looks. (right. my 12 yr old boy looks!)
  18. Living paycheck to paycheck. (workin' on it.)
  19. Expecting a man/knight in shining armor to swoop in and save her. (what about a winning lotto ticket in hand?)
  20. Aimlessly jumping from job to job.
  21. Using MySpace to pick up guys. (oh GOD, that sounds so dangerous. craigslist was way safer.)
  22. Expecting a man to do all the wooing.
  23. Wishing she had someone else’s life. (nope, just their money. their cold. hard. cash.)
  24. Expecting everyone to drop everything because it’s her birthday ... (i love a good birthday party!! but if you can't come, you can't come. but if you CAN - then PARTY!)
  25. ... or because her “boyfriend” of two weeks dumped her. (or because her ex knocked up some girl, or because her ex started dating someone else, et al. - i know someone who could benefit from this one.)
  26. Measuring her self-worth by a number on the scale. (let's see... how many lbs of sushi can i ingest....)
  27. Being cheap. (buying quality products definitely means a lot more now. ... except couches. i cannot imagine paying over 1k for a couch.)
  28. Quitting a job without having a new one lined up first (especially in this economy!).
  29. Blaming her mother for all her issues.
  30. Romanticizing her 20s. (i loved my 20s! *shrug* it was fun. so was high school. not that i want a do-over. i'm a total in-the-present girl.)

I love this list. Actually women should knock this shit off by about 18.
