I spent the weekend with university friends. Back when we turned twenty, we flat-shared, drank Jack Daniels and watched episode after episode of Friends together.
Whilst I do not consider myself past it, and in the loosest sense still broadly associate with the term ‘young,’ this weekend the three of us spent a substantial period of time discussing de-humidifiers. In fact, such was the interest in the blighters, I had to produce mine so we could compare models.
Has it come to this? Thirty one and discussing de-humifiers. And it got me thinking, what on earth has changed in the decade since those head (achey) Jack Daniel days?
Here are a few things that I have learned since then.
I don't like Jack Daniels.
My overdraft is not money to be spent.
No-one really has the faintest clue what they’re doing.
You won’t stay in touch with everyone.
No Bruce, I was not 'born to run.'
Spotting a narcissist early is advantageous.
I'm suspicious of people who seem too nice.
Go easy on yourself.
Never buy jeans in a smaller size to ‘slim into.’
Walking solves most problems.
Cool is overrated.
Banks are untrustworthy.
Nowhere beats your own bed.
I know nothing.
And finally, possessions cannot make you happy - but a dehumidifier and a tumble drier can absolutely change your thirty one year old life.
