I don't think it was meant to be, but I laughed so hard I cried. And then called the friend who gave me this book for my 30th, and laughed with her about it.
The truth is, she's going to look back on it when she IS actually 30 and cringe. (And not just because of the gratuitous Alanis Morissette quoting-- 1995 called, they want their angst back).
I haven't read the whole book, but if you're a fan of dramatic young women pretending they know enough to give advice to *anyone*... worth buying it for T-Swift's contribution alone.
I'm turning 30 in about three months (my birthday is August 16). I've been freaked out about the prospect forever. When I was in college, it didn't faze me. Turning 21 didn't bother me, even though I was older than most of my friends by a few years. Turning 25 was okay. Turning 26 was a little harder because that's when my quarter life crisis kicked into high gear and I started questioning everything I was doing, from little to big.
I stumbled on Glamour's 30 things list last week, at the library, in a back issue of the magazine. I immediately requested the book from the library, although I briefly considered just buying it from Amazon, thinking I might want to highlight passages and have a copy to reference. I'm glad I didn't though. I'm glad I read the book, there was some good insight, but I am not a re-reader of books and I am trying to eliminate clutter from my life and that includes books.
This book took me two days to read (and I never read books that fast - I'm a slow reader). It's written in essay form - a famous woman was given an item on the list and they wrote an essay about the impact that item had or will have on their life. Some of the things on the list to have include a decent piece of furniture that isn't a hand-me-down, something to wear in case your dream employer wants to see you in an hour, an unpadded resume, something expensive you bought just because you deserve it. Some things to know include how you feel about having kids, how to live alone, when to try harder and when to walk away.
I am not going to rehash the list here and turn it into a list of things I don't have/want/need.Read more ›

It was a fast fun read. Enjoyed it. The list is good but not an all-inclusive guide though. It was cool to read the take of celebrities on it too ;)Published 1 month ago by bleuvert
Sometimes women need to really need to hear what other women think about certain things and how we can share with others to help each other out. This book shares these feelings.Published 2 months ago by Marjorie Thomas
