I'm not totally irresponsible, I'm still working on paying off debt I accrued from being super underpaid living in NYC, and the costs incurred when I moved. I'm saving, and paying off debt, but is there a time I'm supposed to feel ready? How do you know when you are?

When does life start?
After watching St. Elmo's Fire, a crappy 80's movie in which post grads are forced to grow up and accept life, it made me think of a few things. My dad is asking me when I'm going to buy a house. Quite honestly, I have no idea. When am I supposed to be ready to do these things? I'm no where near saving 10% of any house even if the market is trash. I'm turning 30 this year, and I really don't have any plans or desire to get married or have kids right now. I'm more focused on whether or not I'm going to buy these shoes.
