Being an adult is a crock of shit.

A few weeks ago I had to wait so long for the bathroom in the morning that I found myself forced to make the executive - adult - decision to pee in a Pringles can. Clearly not my finest hour but when you've got to go... The point is, there are plenty of things in our lives that we cannot control…

Enough.

I’m in a relationship with my phone.

Meeting someone you've been chatting to online is just like going to the cinema. Here you are believing the film you're about to see is going to live up to your expectations, only to find they put all the good bits in the trailer or in this case, their profile.

Being beautiful: a how to guide.
