2. Half the time you're like, "I'm young! I should go out! See the world! Go crazy!"

3. But the other half of the time you're like, "lol nah."

"What's all the fuss about? Just leave me to rest in my PJs. God."

4. There are very few instances when you're ever in the mood to go clubbing.

5. And on the rare occasion you do make it out, it's only a few minutes before you're wishing you'd never left the house at all.

6. You think about sleeping pretty much all the time.

Bravo

7. And spontaneous plans are your personal pet peeve.

Because it's usually cutting into time you've already allotted for rest.

8. You're the master of making up excuses as to why you can't go out.

11. Your ideal socialising environment is in a warm house, wearing comfy clothes and preferably wrapped up with a blanket.

13. And you're staunchly opposed to shots. Nice alcohol only.

14. While everyone else seems to have every social media going...

NBC

15. ...you're basically a mum when it comes to simple things like texting.

You are every confused parent ever.

You are every confused parent ever.

16. So you're completely and utterly screwed whenever you have to update your phone.

NBC

You'll just put it off until your phone refuses to work anymore.

17. You like to be in bed by 10.

Universal Pictures

Or any other reasonable time. Like 10.15.

18. And for you, the only thing worth spending tons of money on is delicious food.

Sweet Jesus, yes.

19. Online dating is not your cup of tea at all.

Tinder / BuzzFeed

Speaking to strangers and then meeting them in a busy place full of more strangers? No thanks.

20. And all your wild nights involve binge-watching Netflix shows when you shouldn't be.

Fox

21. You're a sensible dresser, so seeing people who aren't really stresses you out.

You'll always carry a scarf with you, and you shiver just looking at people who are dressed like it's summer when it's obviously FREEZING.

23. Sometimes you get FOMO and feel like you should be "making more of your twenties" by going out loads like the people you see on Instagram.

NBC

24. But then you look deep inside yourself and realise you'd much rather be like this:

25. Sure, you've been accused of being a boring 23-year-old...

I mean, being "boring" is subjective anyway, so whatever.
NBC

I mean, being "boring" is subjective anyway, so whatever.

26. ...but you'd much prefer to describe yourself as a RESPONSIBLE 23-year-old instead.

NBC

And there's nothing wrong with that, is there?
