I felt a familiar tightening in my chest as I read through a recent survey that asked people at what age they would like to tick off key milestones on their "Life CV".

As someone whose "Life CV" looks like one long sabbatical, I was apprehensive about finding out the age at which the vox populi thinks I should have got my s*** together.

My concern was legitimate. It transpires that the vast majority of people expect to have the trifecta of long-term-partner, babies and a home with a white picket fence by the age of 31. At 33, I don't have any of those things.
