I am 27 and I've been in a relationship for pretty much the entirety of my 20s.

Al pasar los 25, escribía menos sobre emborracharse y más sobre no saber lo...

I graduated college when I was 21.

20대 초반에서 20대 중반으로 넘어가면서 많은 지인과 연락이 끊기고 있다는 사실을 깨달았다. 이전보다 친구 수가 줄어든 것 같았고 그래서 마음이 상했다. 하지만 또 깨달은 것은 수는 적지만 더 친밀한 친구들과의 관계가 형성되고 있다는 것이었다.
