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.

Organising a party on Zoom with your best friends and rocking your life because ay, half-bread and such.

Plotting your outfit for the first rocks after the virus is contained. You know how deadly things are going to get

In case there’s thank giving service, brunch, a house party, beach party and fancy dinner on the same day. You have to come strapped.

How are you holding up with the lockdown?
