30 Skills To Learn Before A Woman Turns 30

Really makes me want cake now...

I found this list on The Fabulous Life of Not-so Rich and Infamous and found it interesting. I'm 25 so I have some time to cross these skills off the list, but I feel like some are unnecessary...

1. Hard-boil an egg  Don't people learn that pretty early on?
2. Diplomatically tell mom to butt out- Still working on...
3. Ace a job interview I've been on so many by this point I'd say I'm pretty good at them :)
4. Ask a man out  I'm not usually the initiator but eh you only live once
5. Send a thoughtful thank-you note Of course!
6. Listen to a friend in need
You should do this always!
7. Ask for help 
Not easy but done.
8. Effectively end an unhealthy relationship (romantic or platonic in nature) Eh, I ended one but should have done it WAY before I did
9. Beautifully wrap a gift
10. Say “no” gracefully
  Every lady should know this
11. Whip up a great dinner with the five items in her fridge - I've whipped up a dinner, don't know if I did with with only the 5 items in my fridge- does that count?
12. Forget pleasing him, by 30 a woman should be able to tell her man exactly how to please her
  I'm very bossy lol
13. Sew a button 
You learn basic sewing at fashion school :)
14. Mix a kick-ass cocktail- I don't drink so I don't think this will ever get checked off...
15. Take off her bra without removing her shirt
  haha a must at the end of the day!
16. Apply lip gloss in the dark
17. Balance her checkbook
  Yes, but painful *sigh*
18. Create a budget
  Don't most of us do this for our jobs?
19. Find the best deal
  Hell yeah!
20. Negotiate a salary and/or pay raise- Never had to, but would like to think I could.
21. Read a map
  Of course!
22. Hail a cab 
Done and done.
23. Say something in French just for the hell of it 
24. Apologize when she’s wrong  Makes you an honest person.
25. Dress for her body type
  Yes, all women should learn this.
26. Change a flat (or know whom to call to come change it)
  I don't drive in Manhattan, but in LA I called AAA
27. Spot a fake (handbag, diamond, potential friend …)
A must!
28. Feign interest
29. Know what to tip on a $25 dinner bill
That's what phones are for lol
30. Hold a baby
Her own or somebody else's?

I think going to a movie or dining out alone should be added. For some reason most women are afraid to do what are considered "social activities" alone. I've gone to movies alone and I survived lol!

What do you think of this list? What do you think should be added or deleted?


  1. looks like you're doing great with your list! almost all checked off!

  2. I turn 30 on July 4th O_O But I'm okay with it. Haha! And I can proudly say I'd done all of the things on this list, all way before I've even come to this point in my life (except 14 because I don't drink, and 2 because I've never had to do such a thing to my mom). Now if we added the "going out alone" thing....not so much. I still can't do that. Haha!


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
