20 things that feel like the end of the world in your 20s

Yeah, yeah, it's a list post. So sue me! 

1. Waking up with a hangover and rolling over to drink some water, only to realise there is no water #ijustcant #literallydead.

2. Realising that Mean Girls, Songs About Jane and Drake and Josh are over a decade old and will soon (if not already) be considered retro. What the ---

3. Getting ready in the morning and having an outfit pre-planned in your mind, and discovering you still haven't washed that top/skirt/dress. Now what?!

4. Treating yourself to some eggs in the morning rather than run-of-the-mill cereal. You have no eggs. Morning = ruined.

5. Forgetting your ID in Sainsburys mid-week when you really just need some wine to celebrate hump day.

6. Forgetting your ID on a spontaneous outing to a club.

7. Let's face it - forgetting your ID, full stop.

8. Forgetting your railcard. Discovering a £21 return costs £18 for a single without one and wanting to cry, because there goes your imma treat myself magazine and overpriced coffee combo for the journey.

9. Momentarily losing a core piece of your everyday make up routine. WHERE IS MY NARS CONCEALER OMG NO ONE CAN KNOW HOW RED AND SPOTTY I AM. Oh... I'm sat on it. PANIC OVER.

10. Running out of shampoo/toilet paper/toothpaste/fairy liquid and resenting buying *neccessities* at the supermarket because they are necessities and therefore should be FREE.

11. Buying tampons. Considering going back to back on the pill to prevent buying tampons. Then the moral panic kicking in. 

12. Being late. Am I pregnant? Lol joke, I'm not having sex.

13. Talking to your friends and realising you should be having more fun/sex/dates/nights out/holidays because that is what being in your 20s is all about, amirite?

14. Realising how long it has been since you've washed your towels/duvet. But it means TWO loads of washing rather than ONE. That fabric conditioner isn't going to buy itself, y'know.

15. Feeling torn by Carpe Diem and Nothing worth having comes easy and What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. How am I meant to live my life?! Stop confusing me!

16. Getting home late and discovering you've missed the Big Bang Theory-HIMYM double bill (even though you've seen them a million times) on E4 and seeing the Hollyoaks subtitles. Nooooooo...

17. Being more than a week behind on your favourite TV shows. Stress city, alert.

18. Define "greasy" hair? *sticks hair in bun* *feels self-conscious all day* *regrets not washing hair*

19. Being wolf-whistled when you look like crap and wondering whether the effort you put in is even worth it if creepy builders don't APPRECIATE it.

20. Waking up in the morning and discovering, nope, you haven't turned into Emma Watson/Miranda Kerr/Lily Aldridge/Leighton Meester/Taylor Swift overnight. Sigh.

  1. Hahaha I love this post, it's all so true! Although waking up with a hangover is made worse when you roll over and grab what you think is water, only to find yourself gulping down straight vodka, bleurggh xx
