Are You A Proper Grown Up Yet?
You're really not very sorted at all. You still live like a student, and there's nothing wrong with that. You've got the rest of your life ahead of you — you can sort yourself out later. You keep doing you!
Your life is pretty sorted. You may not have everything worked out just yet, but you've still got your whole life ahead of you. And you've sorted out the things that really matter. Well done!
Your life is totally sorted. You've adapted to adult life well, and your home is very grown up. You often have your friends round for dinner, and they're always impressed by how together you seem. Congratulations!
