So, you're sat there in your dressing gown on the sofa watching Netflix while working your way through a share size bar of chocolate and you're wondering - am I actually an adult?  I mean, internationally it's known for being when you turn twenty-one.  But honestly, does anyone reading this actually feel like an adult?  Just one of the reasons I love browsing Twitter (ahem, @aglassofice, if you were wondering *wink wink*), is finding the million and one mid-twenties crises taking place from others asking themselves this question.  The consensus seems to be that this internal mid-twenties debate occurs when you're in a situation where a responsible adult is needed to take control of the situation - and you realise, in horror, that you are the adult in the room.
