I just turned 30. Looking forward as a teenager, I never imagined that my 20s would be such defining years.

Now that I was celebrating my 30th, I felt like everyone in my life was suddenly interested in how my career was going (or not going), whether or not I have someone special in my life, and about other massive life-pursuits like home buying, or even financial freedom. So instead of simply celebrating my birthday like a normal person, accepting everyone's well-wishes and moving on, I tried to avoid my birthday at all costs.

I'm in a great place in my life and I'm so excited to turn 30. I wouldn't give back my twenties for anything. Although those years were fun, there were a lot of lessons I had to learn the hard way.

So 31-year-old me, my two mid-20s male coworkers, and one of their girlfriends were drinking forties out of paper bags in the parking lot of a dive bar at midnight. As we slammed the last of the malt liquor and headed inside the bar, I couldn't help but think... Am I acting my age?

In my 20s, I feel like I just let life happen to me. I said "yes" to so many things that I felt like I was Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole towards whatever new self-created chaos awaited me. Eventually I learned that being alone felt so much better than having to deal with the fallout of my bad choices.
