The You’re Not F*cking Up Your 30’s List


Words by Emily Nardini

If you’re a 90’s baby – you were more than likely conditioned to think that life was all about doing well in school to get that perfect 9-5, finding true love, getting a house followed by marriage and kids. No baby no…I didn’t do well in school, I dislike my day job but love my side hustle, I’m buying a one bed flat, I obviously haven’t found the one so marriage and kids aren’t on the table yet. I’m 30 in September. My 20’s were some glam times, some not so glam times. We’re human. Some of us are even Lazy Susan (2020 comedy film). We aren’t all Beyoncé (there is only one after all). UV wants you to remember that instead of worrying about all the things that you shouldn’t be doing in your 30’s, positively focus on all the things that you should be doing. I know we preach self love 24/7, but it’s really the truth. Take. Care. Of. Yourself. Here’s UV’s ‘You’re Not F*cking Up Your 30’s’ List of 30 things you should do in your 30’s
