Her 30s

Her 30's is a blog for women in their thirties. This virtual space is dedicated to pondering the questions and experiences that come with the age. Written by a fellow thirty-something woman living in Los Angeles, (me!),  this blog aims to document the journey towards that ever elusive work life balance. Read on as I attempt to maneuver through societal and self imposed expectations. What defines a woman in her thirties? What should I already be or aspire to be?

I didn’t feel any outside pressure, no one was around (except for my two gigantic cats) to stress me out, and I was able to visit my mom more often, which made her and me happier. I was extremely productive....more

How Men and Women De-Stress

By: Wendy Castellanos-Wolf Here’s another one to add to the list of how men and women differ: how we unwind after a stressful day. My husband and I both work in Education and this week marked the beginning of the semester, and the first week we both went back to work full time. I have noticed that while the common de-stressor for both of us has been a glass or two or three of wine, after the evening formalities are done, we retrieve into our own space to unwind. ...more
