"Young people"? Does she think "pushing 30" is elderly?

"Talking about how long I wouldn’t have to leave the house because of how many records I just bought."

I pretty much never leave the house because of records I just bought and have no idea what this means.

I perceive the above comments as WAY too negative to be directed towards such a lighthearted and amusing soul. This is just weird.
