In general, try to keep the flashage at a minimum. You’re a friggin adult.

 

6. An emergency ice cream tub in the freezer at all times, for nights when you’re feeling the #twentysomething blues.

And your one friend doesn’t come through.

7. A favorite book that isn’t Fight Club. Just don’t be the person who talks about Fight Club. It’s literally against the rules.

Nothing by Nicholas Sparks either.

8. And a favorite movie that isn’t The Notebook. Trust me, saying Amélie will make people think you’re smarter.

More like, “If you’re a bore, I’m a bore,” amirite?
