The topic of this post has been rattling around my brain for a while; but without a sold thread to loop it all together, I ended up leaving it to tumble around with all of my other half-formed ideas and un-tweeted opinions on Love Island.

I was listening to a podcast recently (moment of smugness for the fact that I’m taking my mission to spend my time consuming better forms of content this year seriously, please) and the presenters discussed a new study that’s been done into adolescence and adulthood.

Apart from just being a horrifying fact that makes me feel like a granny, what this really means is that by now I’ve sussed out the essentials needed for a good night out. I will point out that I nearly always have fun on nights out, mainly because my friends are heeee-larious and we could probably have a laugh in a skip if there was enough vodka and crisps, but there are of course some nights that are better than others.

I don’t leave the house without makeup on, I’d never drink lager in a pub, and sometimes I cry at The X Factor without really knowing why.
