As Nancherla says in the video, "If you're already scared, great."
Society regards turning 30 as such a huge milestone that it's easy to believe it will bring about major, instant (and usually awful) changes. And, hey, making it three decades is a big deal. But in reality, your life will probably continue to move at the same pace it always has. You may notice you feel different than you did in your 20s eventually, but those changes probably won't set in the minute you blow out the candles.
In the video, Nancherla and Firestone discuss balancing work and family, succeeding in your career, and other hurdles women often face as they age. Their deadpan, thoroughly offbeat delivery makes one thing clear: Reaching your 30s isn't a death sentence or something to fear — it's just a continuation of the comedy of errors that is life. Watch the video above, and make your 30s your weirdest, funniest decade yet.
Comedians Aparna Nancherla and Jo Firestone provide absurdist advice on how-to “adult”. From puberty (how to put in a tampon and put on a bra) to buying cigarettes and voting (the ultimate signs that you are now an adult), they give the audience step-by-step tips to growing up and growing on.
