As 30 starts looming over my head, I realize that there are certain things we’ve just got to lock down when it comes to adulting.

Why Making Friends As An Adult Is So Hard

Whether you’ve moved to a new city or simply outgrown the one crowd you’re in, at one point or another you somehow realize that it’s really freaking hard to make friends.
