Look. We're not big fans of milestones around here. There's no one thing you have to have done by 25, and no universal sign that you are an Officially Certified Grown-Up Person. We all bloom at different times and in different ways. But. We all have a few of those friends — those suspiciously wizened 22-year-olds who read
