Olive B. Persimmon, 28, writer/public speaker

“I’m 28 and I have a bunk bed. I’m not embarrassed about it either, it is what it is. But, I gotta tell you, there’s nothing funnier than a grown-ass man climbing your bunk ladder. There’s no cool way to do that. Tuck and roll, baby. Tuck and roll. There’s a certain rite of passage in moving to NYC. It involves owning no furniture, crying in the subway a lot, having a nonexistent social circle, and feeling really bad about yourself for six months. If you can make it through that, you’ll be just fine.”
