You love living the good life! We think it's great that you enjoy good food and drinks and you don't ruin the party by insisting that you need 8 hours of sleep. However, we think it might be a good idea to balance that with some exercise or supplements, because at the moment your brain is aging much faster than you. So keep living it up, because your life sounds awesome!
