1. contrary to popular belief, waking up early isn’t going to drastically alter your life or effect how you’re feeling. so sleep til noon and relish in the way laying in bed all day makes you feel a little more human.

3. being unimpressed by everything makes you look like a twat. get excited, be overly passionate about something. enthusiasm is fun.
