Turning 30 may sound like a dreaded turning point. The pressure of settling down, reaching new heights of “responsibility” and attaining a selfless nature, shakes our 20-something selves to the very core. Our journey is far from easy, but the advantages to being young and carefree makes the ride (and free drinks) worth it.
