1. Writing anything online you wouldn't say in real life: "slaaaay queen", "yaaaas", "woot woot" "amazeballs", "nom nom". For example.
Just be normal.

2. Listening to Zayn Malik's new song
Beda day beda day beda day. 
MAKE IT STOP

3. Talking about your journey into work - the new talking about your dreams.
We love you, but we really don't care.

4. Eating a doughnut and then saying "oh my god I am so naughty, such a pig, what a fattie. I'm going to need to workout for like five hours tonight. I am so bad. I am so, so awful". 
Just eat the doughnut.

5. Watching six episode of a TV series in one evening then falling asleep on the sofa with red wine around your mouth and a bag of Percy Pigs squished under a cushion. 
Read a book, listen to a podcast, cook a proper dinner.

6. Pretending you like kimchi. 
Accept that some foodie trends are just not for you.

That guy with the septum piercing serving you craft ale at the cereal cafe is probably going to change the world. Try asking him a question.

8. Worrying about Kanye West

It's ok to just be straight sometimes. As long as you're interesting

Accept you will have spent more on plastic bags than your Chanel clutch by the end of the year.

13. Giving things up
Life's way more fun when you just say yes to everything.
