Its around 7a.m. give or take an hour and as your eyes shutter open a multitude of thoughts race through your mind; “How did I get home last night? Please let there be water in arms reach, how much did I drink? I hope I didn’t do anything stupid last night, let me check my Snapchat story. Why in the world am I up at this hour? HOW am I going to get rid of this hangover?… I am never drinking again.”
