21 Changes You’ll Experience Between Your 20’s And Your 30’s

The road between your 20’s and your 30’s is paved with gold—LOL jk, it’s paved with asphalt made from your biggest mistakes and smallest triumphs. Those things blend together surprisingly well, especially when mixed by comedian and illustrator Mo Welch in her Barely Blair series, which depicts a fresh thirty-something dealing with the realness that is growing older (without necessarily growing up). Here are 21 changes you *might* experience during the magical time that is “…30?”
