I’m getting bored.

Huh? What are you talking about? We always have fun!

But we always do the same things. We go to work every day and eat out every night. We go shopping every weekend. We travel every month.

Catherine:

What’s wrong with that?

I get paid every month, but I never save money. I’m going to be 30 soon! Is that okay?

Well… We’re just enjoying life. Thirty is still young!

Saori:
