The Withdrawal Symptoms Anyone Addicted To Rocks Is Currently Experiencing

April 16, 2020

OMG, nightlife rocks, not the other one. Please dear.

As some of us might not know because the concept of time is all but redundant now — we are now one day to the official start of the weekend.

Normally, this would have been greeted with a little pre-weekend drinking under your desk, fighting with your best mates on the spots to hit first and texting one or two side-tings for a link up. Good times, simpler, times.

Now, you don’t even know what day it is or where your favourite shoe’s left heel is, hidden in the mess that is your room during lockdown. We know how you’re feeling. So much so, we’re going to give a list of the conditions you’re probably facing at home with mommy and daddy:

How are you holding up with the lockdown?
