Rate or Hate

Rate or Hate


Sticking your head out of the car window with your mouth open. It’s NOT safe and I do not do it but it’s bloody brilliant #maincharacter

Justifying massive and expensive Shein hauls just because you’re vegan (we all make mistakes ok).

Even the most northern of breathas (read: weakest link) breaking their shorts back out. It's nice to see them all united again <3

Pretending there’s a live studio audience watching my every move and laughing at my funny inner monologue. I constantly do things because it would be funny for them, the audience.

Having someone in your squad who films everything. I used to hate, but without it I’d never have seen when my one-drink-wonder flatmate get so drunk she fell down the stairs at a random’s 21st.

Everyone smashing exams and having amazing summers xx I’m manifesting for you babes.



The bro code of no leftovers when there’s a flat of like 10 bros. Surely just pick a FEW bros and let us have at the rest of them.

Men who can cook and who talk about cooking and say what they had for dinner. We get it you cook for fun. As women it is still inherently a chore for us based on our socialisation. I hate it here, bro your couscous salad isn’t impressive.

Tinder, we never have the opportunity for a slow burn enemies to lovers trope anymore. I want someone to hate me first not judge my rootability based on my online persona.

The halls kicking out freshers within 24 hours of their last exam. That’s so extra just let them have a little party with their friends afterwards!

Realising the guy you made out with was the least attractive in the bar and it wasn’t even actually his bachelor party :((((
