MY 30TH IS JUST AROUND THE COR­NER, AND ALL MY MATES ARE SET­TLING DOWN, BUY­ING HOUSES AND HAV­ING KIDS. IS 30 THE NEW 20, OR AM I JUST LATE TO THE PARTY?

STEPHEN, VIA EMAIL

Re­mem­ber when you started high school and all the peo­ple about to grad­u­ate looked like they were 55? And when you were about to grad­u­ate, you felt just as young and stupid as ever, and still couldn’t grow a proper mous­tache? Well that, in a nut­shell, is what life is about – an end­less suc­ces­sion of ex­pec­ta­tions, sub­se­quent dis­ap­point­ments and bad fa­cial hair. And take com­fort in the fact your life is just as in­signif­i­cant as oth­ers, so en­joy it while it lasts. In any case, we’ll all be gone 100 years from now and no one will care. Oh, happy birth­day, by the way.
