Have you hit your thirties yet? If so, you’ll probably agree that your nights of partying until dawn are over. Long gone are the days of reckless abandon. Now, life revolves around morning meetings, baby showers, and Target runs. Here are five super relatable tweets that will remind you what your 30s are all about.
