(1) Family who is supportive from a comfortable distance

(3+) 30-something friends to ease our anxieties about aging, remind us that we’re overreacting about almost everything, etc.
(1) Friend with a cute baby that we can hang out with/ abandon on a whim (at least until we’re ready for something more committal)
(Infinity) Politicians to stay out of our bedrooms, doctor’s offices, churches, etc. (never EVER… go away politicians!)
(1) Millionaire mentor who feels like paying off our student loans “just because”
(1) Pet that doesn’t piss or make noise when it isn’t supposed to (cody is enough for me….)
(1) Friend whose swanky job benefits everyone they know
(1) Rent-controlled apartment
(1) Job that offers health insurance and doesn’t make us want to go outside and break copy machines with baseball bats
(2) Exes who are OBSESSED WITH US (nooo way for me!!)
(Infinity) Co-workers that don’t look at our computer screens when walking by
(1) Piece of furniture that didn’t come from IKEA
(Infinity) Neighbors who mind their own business (my future house, please please please)

(1) Boss who respects us (and gives us more monetary benefits)
(1+) Person who offers to come over with soup when we’re sick
(1) Washer/ dryer combo
(2) Minor league crushes that will never come to fruition because did we mention that we have (1) significant other who has their own friends, interests, and life?

(1) Place to spend the holidays, when our families live too far way
(1) Christmas bonus from our cool, health-insuranced job
