To paraphrase Sammy Adams, sometimes when you're out you just wanna go all night longer; but have a GO train to catch, have to get home so you don't wake up your roommates etc. And then BOOM, night over. Like a sad cord pulled out of its socket suddenly your night went from electric to dull. So how to remedy this age old very millennial first world problem?! The obvious and usually no-fail answer, of course, is to treat yo'self.

When it's the peak season for feeds get flooded with people on vacation (#livingitup), the wanderlust can really sink in. You start to feel like you're doing the same thing over and over while everyone else is out having these "AMAZING I COULDN'T EVEN" experiences. Your nights out with the crew turn seem more like re-runs than premieres, pre-ing at someone's house, hitting the same bar you always do then heading home by yourself (all while trying to communicate to your friends via group chat that you really want those pictures now).
