I read over a decade ago (so inflation factors in, too) that you should earn a thousand dollars a year for every year of your age.
That clearly is the ironic twist to being perpetually immature. I have never, ever achieved that income level, and it just keeps getting farther out of reach...

I broke that threshold in my early thirties. Unless I find a job soon, this will be the first year I will drop below it since then.
What's really amusing is that in the rounds of interviews for my last job, the one thing I kept hearing from everyone I talked to that they needed some grey hair in that position. I was happy to fulfill that requirement.
