The F*ck Am I Doing

Lyrics by Ali Keller, Music by Emily Rose Simons

When you realize you ARE the adult in the room.


Turning thirty means that “Finding yourself, figuring out what you want to be, and who you want to be with” is about to get a lot less charming and a lot more sad. 

...The F*ck Am I Doing? is a concert series for the aging millennials who are still trying to find their place, their purpose, or their person - written by aging millennials who can relate to that #struggle
