Kathryn has been living it up travelling the world and building a menagerie of pets – but now that her adventures have ended, she’s back under Mom’s roof.
“I am about to finish my university degree and I can’t think of a better Mother’s day gift than moving out of Mom’s house. She watched my older sisters seamlessly find jobs, boyfriends, and leases, but I sense (and Mom might sense it too) that it’s going to be more difficult road for me. In fact, my road seems to have been paved with broken bricks because the route is so bumpy I keep falling off the adulthood-wagon.
Rather than responsibly save and plan for the big jump, I have spent all my savings on last-minute character-building treks through the Amazon, soul-searching weekends in the mountains, and stress-managing jaunts to Vegas. While these excursions were fun, they didn’t exactly prepare me for domestic singledom. So, besides a few hand-me-down pots from my sisters, and the years of invaluable scoldings from a concerned Mother, I am ill-prepared for the inevitable boot.”
