Dirty Thirty Mixtape: 30 Theme Songs of My 30th Year Living in This World

In case you didn’t know, last Monday was my 30th birthday. If you remember that episode of Friends where everybody turned 30, well… I gotta admit that it was only a little stressful.

Like honestly, I didn’t think much about how old I am now. I think much about how I am 30 and still not rich enough to buy stuff without checking the price. But anyway…

So, in this opportunity, marking the early days of my dirty thirty, I’m creating a mixtape of the songs that basically sum up my life in the past 30 years. And just so you know, I’m no longer 30 and single. Just 30.

I am a single lady who mostly works from home now, and I’m glad that I never jumped into the bandwagon to quit the job and travel. As I quit the job to do some freelance job at home, I realized that being a digital nomad is not for everyone. And it is definitely not for me.

A couple of months ago, if you frequently read my blog then you probably know that I’ve done Borneo trip for a month. During that period, I got a chance to become a temporary digital nomad.

At some point, I’m just thankful that I don’t do this full time.
