    1. You probably buy a lot of stupid shit.

    These are so amazing! I love drunk shopping, i will never shop sober again.

    2. But only after you pay all of your bills.


    Basically, you buy stupid shit, responsibly.

    3. You still get really, really drunk sometimes.

    4. But you've finally learnt when to stop drinking so you won't wake up with a horrific headache the next morning.

    5. And some nights, you would actually rather stay in and get eight hours of sleep than get hammered.

    6. You're really into buying homeware.

    7. And you probably have a good idea of how you would decorate your ~ideal home~.

    8. But actually owning a home is a long, long way away from you.

    9. Sometimes when you're around ~real adults~ you feel like a baby and/or a fraud.
