9 Things you’ll never understand until you’re over thirty


Crossing thirty is the time when you finally start understanding the meaning of the word Nostalgia. Life takes a new turn robbing you of all the carefree moments you once shared. Instead in its place are commitments and responsibility both to yourself and family. For some that’s a nightmare and for many that’s well LIFE!! But though you embrace it, wouldn’t you give anything to be below thirty again?

How well do you relate to all of the scenes and situations showing you the comparisons of life before and after thirty?
