A day in the life of...

The young have something no one else has or ever will have. Time.

It's true. We are smart, beautiful and...alcoholic.

"When strange things happen, are you going round the twist?"

Do I look insecure to you?

Why is it, that if a woman is single and has a lot of sex people seem to think there's something wrong with her? That she must, be, like, really insecure and disrespect herself and, um, whatever. Of course, guys who have a lot of sex are considered 'normal' and if they aren't chasing after pussy whenever they're single there must be something wrong with them.

Ugh, stereotypes.

It hasn't been a good week just trying to be ourselves.

M has gone back to uni to study design and she hates that she's the oldest person in her class, surrounded by a bunch of people that listen to One Direction and can't remember Round the Twist. She doesn't want to be the old fart, but sometimes she can't help but think how immature the people around her are. Which of course makes her act like she is even more old and stuffy, when of course we can all act like kids sometimes.

L and A are turning into typical boring law students (and also alcoholics, because no law student turns down beer and dumplings) who stay up late reading 500 page judgments and forget to put make-up on the mornings.

And J? J is in trouble. She has a new Wow. A new semi-stalker, guy she once slept with who is now acting like he's in love with her. And maybe he is. But J does not need that. She never lead him on or suggested she liked him for anything more than the occasional drink and fuck. She's started hanging out with him and his mates and thought they were friends. He obviously wants to be more than that and won't take no for an answer. He keeps telling her she's beautiful and smart and talented...and that she may be 'the one'. J doesn't want to know that. She told him she just wanted to be friends. Why does this keep happening to her? It doesn't help that one of her uni 'mates' suggested to her that she must have low self-esteem which is why she sleeps around a lot instead of having a boyfriend. Right, because every girl wants and needs a boyfriend.

Why can't we just have fun?
