The now-viral "By age 30" memes prove that the internet has done some of its best work this summer. 

While we got a chuckle out of the American Girl Doll memes and felt personally victimized by Regina George Little Miss memes, the "By Age 30" trend has resonated with us the most.

From cute quips to spot-on observations, this internet fad calls out some of the behaviors we tend to display as we enter our 30s, like stocking up on tote bags, perfecting our anti-wrinkle skincare routines, getting joy from The Container Store and so on. (You get the idea.) 

We have the good, the bad, the ugly and—surprisingly—the inspiring. Fortunately, we've scrolled through our Twitter feed to uncover some of the best "By Age 30" memes for your enjoyment/existential dread.
