The Crazy Thoughts Every Girl Has When She Realizes She's About To Turn 30


Your 20s are a funny time.

When you turn 20, it seems like a lifetime of opportunity is ahead of you. You're halfway through college, about to turn 21 and start the prime party phase of your life -- and after you've hit that major life goal, you'll graduate and get your first job.

Then, one day, you wake up and realize you're 29 and you're on the verge of actual adulthood.

What do you have to show for your 20s? Not much, except maybe 15 extra pounds, a tiny apartment and a ton of student debt (How do you still owe freaking $50,000 when you're seven years out of college?).

What's the end result? It's a little thing called a "quarter-life crisis."

The best remedy for this soul-crushing identity crisis SHOULD be to accept the fact that you're aging and you can't turn back the hands of time.

Only, let's be honest, that's not going to happen.

Instead, why not make a list! A bucket list, that is: a to-do list of sorts, except this time, it's a must-do list.

When that time comes for me, my list might include finally being able to run a 5k or to cook chicken without getting food poisoning.

If I really reach for the stars, I'd say I want to see the Aurora Borealis, go on a safari and get my own place.

In our latest episode of 5TAGES, Keri is thrown into a panic when she overhears a group of girls celebrating their 30s, just like her.

Watch as she vows to make her 20s feel worth it -- from actually helping those in need instead of posting about it on social media, to having a threesome, Keri's determined to look back on her 20s fondly (even if it takes a mad rush at the 11th hour).
