Can someone just give me spoilers for my life in 5 years time because I can't deal with this uncertainty anymore? ? #butreally

If for every Game of Thrones spoiler I saw, I could exchange it at the Unfair Internet Shop for a Life Spoiler, I’d do in a heartbeat. Like, can someone give me a sign of any sort than things are going to turn out okay for me, for my family and for you? Please.
What is it about our twenties that is shrouded in secrecy? Is there a code we missed the memo on? A side quest that we were supposed to complete that one time we walked home hungover and could barely see? Did I MISS the side quest for my twenties because I was too busy pretending to be a Fresher and enduring a two-day hangover?! Dammit Cactus Jack and Sailor Jerry.
Was it something I said? Was it because I spent all morning liking bunny photos on Instagram one time? Was it that text I never sent? Or worse, was it the one that I accidentally sent when it was meant to be a ‘draft and delete for cathartic purposes’?
Reality check: you’re not alone in thinking all the things you do when you’re walking home after work or hopping into the shower. I’m 99.9% sure that some of the things you question could easily slot into your own reality show! I sit and wonder when all of the drama and odd coincidences will slow down all the time, and then I realise that I don’t want it to. It’s character building, after all 😉
But really, once in a while, please can we swap television spoilers for real life ones? I’d love someone to tell me what to make for dinner tomorrow instead of reminding me about Dobby.
