30 Mildly Rebellious Things To Do Before You Turn 30

5 comments
When I turned 24 back in September, I had a startling realization: I'm in my mid-20s. I'm on "real job" #2 and I live on my own. I pay rent. I buy my own groceries. I'm kind of like a real person with real responsibilities. The days of hooking up with strangers and drinking until we vomit are slipping farther and farther away every day... and if you're a "nice girl" like me (well, at least on the surface), you didn't take full advantage of your "glory days." Problem is, when you're a real person, there are real consequences to full-on rebellion.

With the help of my Facebook friends (thanks, guys!), I've come up with a list of mildly rebellious things you should do before you turn 30: Things you can do that are kinda badass, but not badass enough to make a real difference in your life. (NOTE: I was going to make it a list of mildly rebellious things you should do before you turn 25, since that's my magic age, but then I realized that that only gives me 1 year to complete everything on the list).

1) Say no to your boss
If your boss wants to give you another task and you already have 443957 things on your plate, say no. Some bosses will understand. Others will fire you. But whatever, it's not like you're 30 yet.


2) Tell racist jokes


3) Prank your ex


4) Play with your food

Drew Barrymore did it, you can too.


5) Jump on the bed

Your mom always told you not to do it, but she's not here.


6) Kiss and tell 

You're a slut and it's okay. Tell EVERYONE. Especially if he's a musician or has an accent.


7) Ding Dong Ditch


8) Sneak into a movie

Buy a ticket to 1 movie, and sneak into 2 others while you're there.


9) Dye your hair an unusual color


10) Run up the "down" escalator 

You rebel, you. You know you're not supposed to do that, but you do it anyway. Bonus points if you trample someone on your way up.

11) Go skinny dipping


12) Get a small tattoo in an easily hidden area

Behind your neck, the inside of your wrist, behind your ear, on your ankle: all fair game... but the tattoo can't be any bigger than a quarter.

13) Play Hookey 

Skip work, just because you feel like. Have a day off better than Ferris Bueller's. The best part is that you don't have to worry about turning the speedometer back.



14) Dance on a bar


15) Be in the center of the mosh pit 

Warning: You MIGHT have to trade in your Justin Bieber tickets for something a little more hardcore. I'm sorry for hating on the Biebs, but it had to be done.

16) Strip, or at least remove one important item of clothing 


17) Dine and ditch... or at least conveniently "forget" to leave a tip
The waitress was rude and tips are supposed to be optional... and your favorite boots just happen to be on sale.

18) Jump the subway turnstiles

We all know how much I hate the subway and everyone who rides it...

19) Press all the buttons in the elevator

Just make sure you're getting off at the first stop.

20) Litter


21) Pee in a pool 

This is kind of gross. If you haven't already done this, you should do it, but maybe don't tell anyone about it.


22) Lie about your age


23) Swim in the ocean without a lifeguard present

The sign says "swim at your own risk." Look at you, taking risks!


24) Steal a road cone/sign


25) Give someone the middle finger


26) Stay on the treadmill for a full hour

The sign at the gym says that there is a 30 min. maximum for the treadmill. There are 3 people waiting. One of them asks you how long you've been on. What do you do? Lie your ass off.

27) Go to a restaurant and fill your bag with bread, butter, mints, and Sweet'N Low

They offer these things for free. They're basically asking you to take as much as you can.




28) Trespass


29) Curse someone out 

You'll feel so empowered after this. Add a little shove or a bitch slap and you're golden.


30) Break the speed limit

Go 65 in a 55. It's okay, I won't tell.


What would you add to your list?

  2. This is very true we all do this and somethings we keep doing after turning 30 also because there is no age of having fun. Love your post very interesting.

  3. This sounds like fun, but you'd have to be a total pussy to think anything here is "rebellious".
    How about going to Atlantic City on the weekend at the drop of a hat?
    Or sky-diving without telling your SO?
    Or going into the woods to breaking glass bottles or fire a gun?
    Do something exciting, something that isn't ordinary!

  4. EVERYTHING EVERYONE HAS EVER BEEN TAUGHT IS WRONG...
    THE MONETARY SYSTEM HAS FAILED. IT IMPLIES THAT IF AN INDIVIDUAL ACCUMULATES ENOUGH POINTS, THEY REQUIRE LITTLE OR NO KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE VITAL DECISIONS. THESE VITAL DECISIONS ARE BEING MADE WITH LITTLE OR NO REGARD TO ANYTHING. THIS IS SELF DESTRUCTIVE TO EVERY ASPECT OF EVERYTHING ON EARTH. IF YOU ARE READING THIS YOU TOO ARE APART OF THE PROBLEM, AS WELL AS POTENTIALLY A PART OF THE SOLUTION.

    1. This world is going to fail if we don't do something. Everything we are taught is wrong. It's disgusting. What foods to eat, what to
      do, wear, the list goes on.. And the sheeple follow these 'rules' without stopping for a second to fucking THINK.
      That's why I made the decision to go vegan because this alone can make a HUGE difference to the world. Water, resources, lives. Plus you won't feed the machine. It's fucked up.
      I encourage anyone who reads this to watch 'Earthlings' .. ''Cowspiracy' .. 'Vegucated' and encourage you to do your own
      research. I am not here to preach, but feel deep down that there is a movement happening. People are waking up.
      We can change the world. Otherwise there will be no world left and this is not a joke.
