Bridget Jones wrote a really bad diary

A few months ago, I turned twenty-five. Disbelieving in front of the realization that I was no longer twenty-one, I felt the urgent need to rebel, but the celebrations of the night before had made me very sleepy and the idea of ingesting more alcohol did not appeal to me at all.
