How old do you think you’ll be by the time you can independently manage your life – finish study, find a career, fully look after yourself and have time and money to enjoy the things you couldn’t before you got it all ‘together’?
What does having it all ‘together’ even mean?
Is it more than a concept, a set of tangible things, or the qualities that help us manage the ‘togetherness’?
