There's not much I can personally do to change the reality that many people in their 20s and 30s don't know what they want, don't know themselves and will jump out the window the second that plane engine makes the slightest cough.
What I can do, however, is try to be more efficient with my time and emotions by presenting the truest version of myself from day one. I want to be the Cool Girl — you know, the hot and understanding one that doesn't mind if you don't ask me any questions for three straight hours.
