@oh! valencia Thanks. I created an account to make it. :-)
I'm sorry, but re: adulthood, you may be doing it wrong. I live as part of a late-20s, married two-income household in Portland, and together we make (apparently) less than the husband in this post. We don't have student loans, but our mortgage is $1,200 for a small old house that we love and constantly put money into improving. Day to day, I am so incredibly grateful for how amazing and fun our life is. We work reasonable schedules; we travel (to Europe, sometimes!); we cook delicious, simple food at home; we eat delicious, more complex food at restaurants; we drink masterfully made cocktails, liquors, wines, and beers; we hang out on our patio with a fire and friends and stare at the stars and moon (when we can see them). And we still save money. We're lucky that we and our family members are all pretty healthy. We're lucky that we don't have many responsibilities except to our work and each other. For people like us (and, I think, the poster), adulthood is what we make of it. If you aren't having fun, start doing something different.
