2. You’re willing to let your personal style develop as you get older.

3. You always know exactly when to pivot.

And struggle to actually move anything large without using the word “pivot”.

4. You’re very, very careful about who you let work around your house.

5. But you’re always happy to make the best of a bad situation.

TV fixes all.

6. Sometimes, a coffee shop is as good as a bar.

I mean, maybe. Maybe.

7. And when you find somewhere you like, you’ll basically never leave.

8. You definitely know that you shouldn’t fight your friends for dates.

It won’t work out for anyone involved.

9. Your lifestyle will change a lot, and it won’t be all bad.

Some people might even prefer the romantic bath.

10. Even if that lifestyle mainly revolves around chilling in your apartment.

And drinking Sprite.

11. Enjoying the holidays with your friends can be done at any age.

12. Sometimes, you might struggle to get over your ex.

18. Well, unless there’s a blackout, of course.

19. You definitely shouldn’t bet your apartment on a quiz, no matter how sure of the answer you are.

Especially if your answer is “Transponster”.

20. Seriously, if you’ve got a great apartment, you really need to hang onto it.

21. Or your kitchen may become home to food being eaten from a fussball table.

Though that actually does seem like a great idea.

22. Even if it does prove that you can make anywhere a much nicer place to live.
