  • Don't worry, you are mostly doing it all right. Your life at 30 will be as dreamy as you imagined, but it will also be pretty fucking hard, kind of like it is now. You're a hard person to live with. You have the hardest time living with yourself, and that won't change, but you'll get used to it, and sometimes it will be funny. You're going to have a lot of the same friends, and you guys will still go to shows, but you'll also have to attend a funeral and other bad things will happen in between. You should be nicer to your parents though.
