Being 30-something in San Francisco means a lot – and it does come with tons of perks – but what it doesn't mean is that you always feel ... adjusted.
Still. I love it here and I have no desire to leave. But I have had to change, or at least I’ve been trying. The thing is, unless you're rich it's nearly impossible to live like "a real adult" in this town. You can't have a big yard, you can't buy a house, and the bars still call your name as loudly as ever. You don't want to leave the city, but you gotta do something. But what? And how?
