There comes a point in your adulthood where you feel the urge to reign in your drinking habits. For me, this is currently spurred on by the trend in vegan brunches, yoga classes and 'look after yourself' memes #blessed. ImgFlip Luckily, I've discovered secret bars so now I can hide my 'should have gone to… Continue reading Knock, knock. Who’s there? Secret bar . OoOh.
The Midult Now I'm in my mid 20s, inflatable climbing walls and slides that make you scream are just childhood memories. No, now it's all, oh..... inflatable climbing walls and slides that make you scream. Thanks to the UK's first indoor inflatable theme park, it's now acceptable to chill in a ball pool on a… Continue reading Don’t mind me, I’m just off to the inflatable theme park.
As someone who prides themselves on their organisation skills, I'm currently hiding behind perfectly arranged, colour coordinated cushions in embarrassment - I've double booked my friends and now I have to break the bad news. Before my Quarter Life Crisis, sticking to a plan was as simple as, well, sticking to a plan. Now adulthood… Continue reading I’ve got 99 plans but I can’t stick to one
I came home the other day to discover that my boyfriend had bought us a pie. In normal circumstances, I would SHOVE MY FACE STRAIGHT INTO THE PIE and go back for seconds, obviously. But this occasion was different... My boyfriend's choice - Steak and Stilton - was wasted on me. My Dad is allergic to… Continue reading Pie-gate
Betches As many Quarter Life Crisis survivors will tell you, your adulthood can often be spent in and out of (rather awkward) job interviews. Some people are forced into job-hopping thanks to rolling temporary contracts, fixed-term contracts or zero hour employment, while others are experimenting with their dreams..... #GOALS Evening Standard Before I found myself… Continue reading The Job Interview
If there's one thing I've learned in my 20s - it's that adulthood will put you in the shit, literally. Thanks to comedian Luisa Omielan, tackling life's shit is easier when you're using Beyoncé's music as your life soundtrack. Luisa's show 'What Would Beyonce do?' opens with the story of her moving back home at… Continue reading Me, Myself and I (plus the cat)
I don't know what's happened to me this past month but I've started drinking wine and dusting the blinds. It all began when my 'inner adult' decided to move in with my boyfriend - while my 'inner child' saw the opportunity to decorate the flat with glittery toothbrush holders and chocolate bars. Rum and glitter… Continue reading Bills, Bills, Bills
Imgflip The iconic TV show Friends is on Netflix - FINALLY! It's hard to believe that since the show first aired an entire era has gone by. As somebody whose childhood and teenage years were spent watching Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Monica, Phoebe and Ross endure the trials and tribulations of adulthood - I realise that… Continue reading If F.R.I.E.N.D.S was set in 2018
As any self-respecting adult knows, everything is better when there are snacks involved. And as these self-respecting adults will tell you, the involvement of snacks is absolutely nothing to do with the avoidance of real-life problems (like never-ending emails and unaffordable rent) and is actually a viable hobby. For example, that time I made chocolate… Continue reading RIP Fridge
A little while ago, I wrote about how I'd been stripped of my 'young person' title and thrown into the depths of adulthood as I'd outgrown the eligibility for a 16-25 railcard. (You can read my blog post here - Crappy Birthday) In my new identity as 'person', I've had to give up sleeping in,… Continue reading Off the rails
