Now you have it. Or at least more than you did in your 20s. What are we going to do with it? Kudos on your new iPad, but I was kind of hoping we'd go to Mexico.
Which neighborhood to move to
You’ve done the whole studio share thing, but now that you’re in your 30s, it’s time to move to an apartment with actual walls and things like privacy. You really want to move Downtown where all the bars, restaurants, and humans live. Your significant other, however, feels your money would best be spent on the up-and-coming neighborhood where apartments are cheap and the social scene is totally going to happen in, like, the next five to eight years.
Maybe you never noticed it in your 20s because you both "fell asleep" after all the happy hours, but it has become audibly apparent that you will not sleep through the night for the rest of your life.
Someone had a few too many
And so begin the gentle, subtle reminders that you are no longer in your 20s.
The ultimate sacrifice: giving up your own holiday traditions so your significant other can have theirs, and dealing with all the parental guilt that comes with this. It’s a delicate balance between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Easter, and Flag Day. Or you could just end up with someone from a different denomination and save yourself this mess.
Are you doing the dishes? Or do you have laundry detail? Who gets garbage duty and who gets vacuuming? Choose wisely, because the choices you make will follow you for the rest. Of. Your. Life.
Are we really going to do this?
