    Forever "on my way."

    1. Your alarms always have motivational messages.

    Starting off the morning strong.

    2. You'll do anything to save time, even if it means adopting high risk tactics.

    3. You are an expert at multitasking.

    It could be doing your makeup on the train, or eating breakfast while you run to the bus stop.

    4. And, of course, your breakfast is the breakfast of champions.

    Except you never look this put together when you're shoveling it down your throat as you run out the door to catch the bus.

    5. And your hyper-speed makeup looks like this (on a good day):

    "I just put on some lipstick" (because there wasn't actually time to do anything else).

    6. The fucked up thing is that, when you're already late, EVERYTHING CONSPIRES AGAINST YOU TO MAKE THINGS 1000% WORSE.

    The bus breaks down, there are signal malfunctions in the subway, and you just might break down and cry.

    7. You arriving at a meeting.

    8. And trying to pretend that everything is great.


    9. Your reputation for being late is well known among your friends.

    "Take it easy, guys."

    10. And all you can do is reply with cute little emojis and hope they forget about it.

    Shit icon, smiling face, hearts... as long as it's cute enough to distract 'em, that'll do the trick!

    11. The truth is, sometimes, you're not even late because you didn't wake up on time.


    You just became occupied doing more important things, like scrolling through Instagram or contemplating the meaning of life.

    12. You leaving home.

    Forget high heels. Sneakers all day, every day.

    13. And when you finally get to where you're supposed to be, your friends greet you like this.

    14. You say that you won't be late next time.

    15. But dreams only last so long. Tardiness is forever.
