    drunk culture is so normalised/embraced in Australia, we literally have alcohol in restaurants at our uni campus ... uni friends be like: “yo , going to order a drink to loosen my nerves a bit” . For what. We’re going to an art exhibition.

    One time at a sleepover in uni with ~10ish people there was a huntsman on the ceiling when we went to bed and we all agreed to leave it there. Slept like babies, woke up and our little friend had moved on. No worries.

    In Australia we have bottle-o's on uni campus, so uni students are able to drown their sorrows within walking distance. #straya
