Break-ups, lost pets, dropped ice creams, too many essays to write – sometimes you’re allowed to throw yourself a soggy, sad, sugar-fuelled pity party, complete with your oldest trackies, some terrible TV, and a whole packet of Tim Tams.
A friendly type named Kara Haupt has even put together a guide so you don’t have to wallow in your misery all alone: the Pity Party Party. She's handed over playlists, recipes, activities and even supplies to help you and your chums through your moment of need, and it’s all online for you to download. Woohoo!
Fancy an “everything sucks” party sign? Want to play pity bingo or search for the closest place to buy boxed wine? You could do that, or then again, you could just lie on your bed with The Bachelor on. It’s your party and you can cry if you want to, after all.
