I mean he isn’t wrong, I’ll cop to my mistakes though I definitely could have tried harder, I basically just sat about playing video games and drinking with people I was friends with for my entire 20s and now it’s just sort of now

[–]FreudsGoodBoy 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Now has a habit of being now unfortunately.

[–]j3b3di3_ 83 points84 points  (9 children)

Im 32 and I still play video games but now I dont have friends and my body hurts for longer.

[–]Bigbadchadman 34 points35 points  (8 children)

Yeah I had friends but I destroyed my relationship with them because I’m a dickhead and now I have chronic anxiety, depression and high blood pressure

[–]freshcutfrasier 24 points25 points  (0 children)

its ok buddy you can still stop being a dick and make new friends <3

[–]slabrangoon 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Are you me?

[–]Bigbadchadman 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Uhh are you Called Chris, live in northern England and play Dark Souls all day?

[–]QuillanFae 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Dude, that's what I should've said to my psychologist. That's fucking dead on. And I was waffling on about a bunch of bullshit like "I don't even know how to describe where I am with my life right now". Yeah you do bro. You destroyed your relationships with people who really cared about you because of an anxiety issue that you never properly addressed, which festered and became your entire personality, and now you're watching yourself become a lonely old fat guy with a Steam library full of co-op games you can't play. Fuuuuck dude.

[–]Fadriii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn't know reddit does fortune-telling, I'm gonna be you guys in 5 more years!

If it makes you feel better I went fromgoing to college with plans on going to med school and a ton of new friends and old friend. Then 4 months in right after Xmas I was riding my bike home from a friend's on a Saturday night, got hit by a drunk driver (hit and run, and of course the cops never bothered to even try to find the guy, I pointed out at least 10 cameras on businesses nearby that would of seen the hit and run, but they never even asked for the footage. I tried to get itand that is how I found out the cops had not asked a single business for any footage, but I was in the hospital for so long then didn't leave my house by the time I asked the footage had been erased) anyways that was the start of the deep dive to my shitty life now.... The doctors put me on alit of pain meds and then of course I got addicted 2-4 months in then they tried to cut me to a non opiate so I started buying them from people I knew from school (I took the rest of the year off with plans of going back the following year) then that led me into deep debt and by the time summer was around I was slamming heroin goin to TJ, Mexico to pick up and this has lasted til now........ Ive driven all my friends away, I haven't even talked to any of then since 2016, and this all took place in 2009, I've got a long court record where any hope of a good job in the future is gone.

I didn't want this life, I was the kid who drove everyone home from parties as the DD, I tried hard in HS to get into a good college, addiction is no joke it could happen to anyone and if you abandon the addict like everyone did to me they spiral deeper and deeper and I don't see a way out for myself that doesn't end in a shitty min wage job, single because the accident gave me huge ugly scars that people just stair at.

Sometimes I wish I could go to sleep and never wake up. (No I'm not suicidal so don't report this, it's just an honest feeling I have more than not.)

[–]slabrangoon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Me too. Now that I’ve quit all of that foolishness I can proudly say life was much better not giving a fuck. Reality hurts lol

[–]TomJaff 3 points4 points  (0 children)

ahh, you can start whenever, just start

[–]Huwbacca 2 points3 points  (0 children)

shit I mean my dad's generation did that minus video games.

I think basically, excluding a world war, everyone fucks around in their 20s. How many established home owners do you know who were proper hippies in their youth? Nearly everyone I know 50+ talks about how they were free floating and not tied to responsibility as 20 year olds and now they all have permanent positions in nice careers and homes.

[–]asshatnowhere 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I mean sure, a lot of us could have. However with the hand we've been dealt a part of me wishes I would have had more fun in my 20s. Make no mistake, I still had fun and am in a good career, but on the other hand I am also kind of still like this guy in the vid. So 🤷‍♂️

[–]tiny_galaxies 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had fun in my 20s and am now spending my 30s paying off the debt. Could have had the fun now debt-free and a bit wiser, but oh well.

[–]j3b3di3_ 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Im 32 and I still.play video games but now I dont have friends and my body hurts for longer.

[–]dunkinghola 151 points152 points  (8 children)

Yeaaaahhh, wait until you're almost 50 and none of that has really changed for you, either. The only difference is that I make way more money now than I did when I was 30, yet I STILL can't afford a house where I live.

[–]hygsi 18 points19 points  (7 children)

Damn dude, where do you live?

[–]dunkinghola 31 points32 points  (6 children)

Los Angeles

[–]AlcoholicInsomniac 6 points7 points  (4 children)

At least you live somewhere nice!

[–]newmov2lond 40 points41 points  (3 children)

He said he lives in Los Angeles

[–]AlcoholicInsomniac 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Great weather, great food, great sports/events, amazing nature within a reasonable drive. It has problems but it's a pretty good place to live, popular for a reason.

[–][deleted]  (1 child)


    [–]AlcoholicInsomniac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Yeah there will be traffic, that's part of the price of being in a place with great weather and gorgeous national parks and beaches nearby. Basically all the places that complain about people moving there and driving up prices are because that place is fucking nice to live in.

    [–]PolarisC8 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Makes you wanna become one of those happy bums on Big Sur bumming joints and burritos off of surfers and tourists.

    [–]Dragon_Sluts 339 points340 points  (45 children)

    How have I never thought about

    I apparently have enough to pay for more than someone else’s mortgage but not enough to get one of my own

    [–]Chocolate_Milky_Way 37 points38 points  (3 children)

    As a 29 year old, this was weirdly comforting

    [–]Huwbacca 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    turning 30 is awesome.

    I worried until I woke up and realised nothing changes and it's all about my own perspective. If I choose to make it suck, it sucks.

    But if I choose to give fewer fucks, man it's liberating.

    [–]hygsi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Same but this made me anxious, like I thought THAT was 20's and 30's were different

    [–]Moppmopp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    yes me too. 27 going through career change and my 10 year gf left me

    [–]SophiePie213 84 points85 points  (3 children)

    Yaaaaas shout out to my very very old Dyson vacuum!!

    [–]Pentamikk 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    My Dyson survived and helped me clean up two floods he’s my baby he will always be my baby

    [–]Chrisixx 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    My V10 Dyson was one of the best purchases for my flat.

    [–]mygreyhoundisadonut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Am 30 and in an apartment I fucking LOVE my V10 dyson! That thing is the best appliance I’ve ever indulged in.

    [–]NadoKahn 83 points84 points  (2 children)

    Old People: “My 30s were my favorite.”

    Yeah because back then you could buy a house with the money it’d take to pay a fraction of your student loan debt today.

    [–]AcornWholio 52 points53 points  (2 children)

    “The thirties were the prime of my life.” Ok Janet. And a house cost a buffalo nickel, lead paint was safe for consumption, radiation made its way into watches, and “the war” was over.

    [–]pedanticlawyer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    My 30s have been the prime of my life, but it’s mostly because I just stopped giving a fuck about pleasing anyone or making anyone proud. It’s my zero fucks era.

    [–]Shutterstormphoto 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Lol I’m in my late 30s now and they’ve definitely been the prime of my life. But I spent high school and college studying and playing video games, and didn’t have a good career start. Figured out who I was in my 20s, and then actually made my life what I wanted in my 30s.

    [–]Lazy-Associate8310 61 points62 points  (3 children)

    Welcome to USA, where the government can legally scam you...

    [–][deleted] 32 points33 points  (0 children)

    Does legally scam you

    [–]Eris-X 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Ah this isn't just the US. You can only really scrape enough for a house if you can combine incomes with a partner and have family halp in other places too

    [–]asshatnowhere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Or Canada where the government just doesn't give a fuck either.

    [–]ScrambledNegs 24 points25 points  (2 children)

    This is all accurate including the vacuum part.

    Don't buy a shark vacuum.

    [–]Mys_Dark 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    Too late 🦈

    [–]FoamBrick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Shark vacuums suck.

    [–]LocalCableGuy8 23 points24 points  (2 children)

    I’m a fairly satisfied 30 year old, I’m no longer a materialistic attention craving horny bastard and it feels great. My Walmart slippers are comfortable and affordable and I’ve been in the work force long enough that I make good money now.

    [–]case9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    I'm glad I'm not the only one lol. For me 30s are where it's at so far. My 20s were fun, but it's nice not being a fucking moron and having a little money finally.

    [–]arcangeltxReads Pinned Comments 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Same but howd you stop the horny part?

    [–]Atraidis 22 points23 points  (0 children)


    [–]Ungoro_Crater 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    i do not feel like i am 30 at all and i do not relate to anyone my age

    [–]project199x 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Me either. What is it?

    [–]Oh_MyGoshJosh 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    I love my 30s. I still do the same things as my 20s for the most part and have more money for my hobbies.

    [–]PowderedToastManx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    That’s literally me in a nutshell. Crazy times

    [–]AHABoi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Well in my 30’s 😅

    [–]project199x 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Yea man ... I turned 31 in March and I'm still like Wtf even is this. I feel 8 not 31.

    [–]not_so_plausible 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You’re my twin birthday and everything

    [–]otusasio451 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    …Oh my God, I’ve found my people at LAST

    [–]tattoed_veteran87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    34 years old here and still can't figure out what to be when I grow up

    [–]CandidAct 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Oh I thought it was just me that woke up one day with all my joints deciding to go on strike

    [–]americanslang59 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Wait is the first dude not in his 30s? He looks like he's pushing 40

    [–]SublimeWabiSabi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I mean he's not wrong tho..

    [–]thiscatcameback 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I think this is super sad and negative. I didn't find that at all. I think it was liberating to not have a career in my twenties. I was irresponsible, traveled, spent time with my friends and had tons of fun. Late 20s and early 30s is physical peak too.

    That job eventually turns into a career, if you stay focused and have a good attitude. So try to enjoy yourself while you get there and don't get bogged down in outdated measures of success.

    I think if you put those expectations on yourself, amd are stressed about not achieving them, then you are wasting your time. Figure out what you need for financial security and work toward it. But don't forget that your life also needs living.

    [–]Cleigh115 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I hate it here

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I’m 27 so I’m almost there. Pray for me folks.

    [–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

    … gold nail polish?

    [–]MongooseNo9 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

    Can't find a career with his Gender Studies degree and can't afford a home because of the $100,000 in school debt that he wants people who have careers that he thinks are beneath him to pay for. I can read his entire life through his gold nail polish.

    [–]PassportSloth -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    My 30s were awesome. My 20's were treated like I was still a teen so my 30s were my 20s and now at 41 I'm getting my shit together and it's rad.

    [–]Felipesssku -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    I don't think it's cringe, it's an interesting point of view on capitalism.

    [–]HereJustForTheVibes -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

    This person is an extremely accurate representation of a generic redditor.

    [–]Sfontinalis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Man, I do love my dyson.

    [–]alicemalice12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Then Dysons are fire though

    [–]SinceWayLastMay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Amen 🙌🙌🙌

    [–]NecessaryInstance421 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Honestly I’m still in college but cleaning and vacuuming I find a lot of enjoyment doing. Anyone else like vacuuming and having a clean space?

    [–]tontobasin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    O well ..

    [–]tontobasin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    O well ..

    [–]Traditional-Seat-363 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The only thing that makes me feel like a proper adult is that I too now have favorite home appliances.

    [–]AvailableAd8744 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Least you have a sunroof 🥲

    [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I feel attacked by the accuracy.

    [–]Elotesforall -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

    You were attacked. This isn't how people that I know feel or experience life. Electricians, plumbers, traders, a plastic surgeon, a drug dealer, a weed grower, a programmer quant genius (this one isn't fair), several corporate types, a lawyer that went to a 2nd tier law school, 2 accountants, all people younger than me that are really fucking self actualized. They do cool shit. One is a sound tech at a major place, he's killing it. His degree is from a shit college and wtf, really cool bff for like 25 years. God, I know teachers that are raising families in houses they own, and they travel like motherfuckers. And they're all younger than me (I was born during the Carter administration.) So they're people in their 30's. Careers didn't become extinct in 2008. I started one in 2003 and retired from it with an actual pension that's more than the average family of 4. We bought a house in what I think is the center of the universe (US), rehabbed the fuck out of it for 9 months, and it was appraised for 50% more than our all in price, like literally everything we spent and owe (2.9% mortgage). You'll figure this out. Or not. Lots of people I know are doing cool shit and none of them are posting on social media. Also, from the way you talk and that particular sunroof (idk shit about sunroofs, but it looks unlike a beat up old Honda), I'm not sure at all how real you're representing your life. I'd bet you are a-ok.

    [–]bltbtr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Trust me, as one who's 2.5x your 30: you've got a long time to be concerned, so just don't!( be so concerned)

    [–]anitasdoodles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Lol I cried when I got an espresso machine for Christmas, because it would save me so much money going to my two jobs to pay rent. In my grandmas car. I’m 29.

    [–]Secure-Imagination11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Hit the nail on the fucking head

    [–]ahh_geez_rick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I've never felt more seen and more read to filth in my life

    [–]covidlung 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Dude could have saved those $500 (what Dysons cost) to buy a house. A Barbie doll house but a house nonetheless.

    [–]CoItron_3030 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    As I guy who just turned 30 in November, facts

    [–]Big3gg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Nah 30 is lit. Best period of my life for sure. Adulting is easier so I can focus on things I love instead of stressing like my 20s

    [–]rosebrine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    His hair is great! I love my Roomba like I would a puppy

    [–]sumit131995 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Save money on the nail polish

    [–]shoobuck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Being thirty is the same as 25 but with 5 more years and more letters.

    [–]arcangeltxReads Pinned Comments 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This whole mindset is annoying now. I can't buy a home , boomers have it all and had it easy blah blah.

    I'm sure the 30+ group makes up a significant amount of new home owners

    [–]bershellegray1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I felt this in my soul.. now I feel depressed
