Get Cash & Get Drunk: 11 Simple Tips For Getting Your Sh*t Together

The lack of schedule during summer is crazy because everything ends up happening at once and it's tough going out every night of the week - you're not as young as you used to be. So if it feels like your whole life is falling apart, stop being so over dramatic you lazy shit. All you need to do is follow these 11 steps and your life will be back to the amazing levels that it used to be (sarcasm alert):

1)  Make many, many lists.


First item on the agenda: make a to-do list. Routines make the world go round, after all. Even if it's just making a fucking Pinterest board of your dream wedding, at least it's productive. It will help to engage your mind and get out of your mid-summer stupidity funk asap.



2) Go on an unfriending spree.


De-cluttering your social media is key. Figure out who the people you'd jump over a rainbow for are and who are the bitches who'd stab you in the back for some sausage. Don't be ashamed of unfriending people because really, who gives a fuck? If she's a bitch, fuck her! Bye bye.

3) Clean your disgustingly dirty room.



Just like everyone else during the summer, you room is fucking disgusting, you filthy animal. Go through "the pile" in the corner of your room and put a wash on, for fucks sake. Your overflowing wardrobe is in need of some serious TLC, so get some black bags and give your old clothes to the homeless, it'll make you feel better about yourself and you'll be able to dance in your room, once again.



4) Get some money.


Get a job if you don't have one and if you do, organise your money. Set up a savings account. And always have 'get away' money. It doesn't have to actually be for escaping, it's just called that. Keep it for emergencies and for escaping, if you need to.


5) Buy the things you need.


We all have that list of things that we've been meaning to buy; new pants, socks, lip balm, foundation, pads. All the necessities. Get your lazy ass up and go on a productive shopping trip and get your ducks in a row, so to speak.



6) Start exercising.


The best form of exercise is the one you enjoy. Stop being a lazy bastard and get out there. It will help clear your cluster-fucked mind and work off those last few vodka-cokes into the bargain. What's not to love about that?



7) Forget about the stupid things.


Stupid bitchy fights between friends don't matter. What you're going to wear on Friday night doesn't matter. How shit you looked in those pictures last weekend doesn't matter. Stop being an over-dramatic hoe and move on. Seriously.

8) Go on holidays.


Everyone deserves some respite. Get the girls together and go away somewhere. It doesn't have to be abroad, even just go on the train somewhere, anywhere different will do really.




9) Get absolutely shit-faced.


Think of it as the last shebang before you actually become a responsible adult. Go wild and crazy and then get down to business on a fresh new week (until next weekend).






Throughout the rest of the year we live off schedules and everything is organised for us, so when summer hits us and we have no plans to work off, you have to make your own. Step up to the plate or get one of your super OCD/ organised friends to do it for you. Either way, just do it.

11) Mentally prepare for college.


Get ready for it. It's going to be a shock to the system, so don't say I didn't warn you.
