All my friends are getting married, having planned pregnancies, and getting promotions. Me, well, last year I moved in with a roommate to save money which works out well since I lost my job last month. I can't remember my last long term relationship and that plan is to never have a pregnancy, planned or otherwise . I'm 32, this is NOT where I thought my life was headed.

Adulthood in 2014 does not look the same as it did 30, or even 10 years ago. My family doesn't always get it and a lot of people are worried about me but I've got good friends, a plan, can still afford cheap wine, and I still fit in my jeans from when I was in college so, I think I'm going to make it after all.
