"I meet up with my crew (Robyn, Drew, Casey) and we have 'family night': We cook dinner, see a movie, maybe go ice-skating. So even if we're all worthless, at least we can laugh about it." —ASHLEY, 27

"Once I finally manage my way out of bed, I berate myself for having made no plans: 'Fuck me! I could be at the outlets right now!'" —BLAZE, 27
