The current trend among my friends is to skip college, live at home with your parents, work a decent temp job until it becomes a pretty good permanent job, save a ton of money, buy your dream car, save a ton more money, move out of your parents home at the age of 28 into a beautiful, newly-built town home.

I feel so duped, what with having gone to college including Grad School, driving an average car, working a crappy job, and living in an apartment?

I feel like I'm so far behind everyone else--of course, I also found the love of my life and I'm getting married in less than 2 weeks, whereas most of my other friends are still single.

I thought I did everything I was supposed to do...

Granted, I followed my parents model almost to the letter, except I don't have any kids yet, which I'm almost certain has everything to do with everything--and the fact that they would NEVER have let me live at home til I was 28.

Still, anyone else feel like they missed the boat?
