20 Signs You're A Grandmother In Your Generation

Feeling out of touch with the age of millenials

20 Signs You're A Grandmother In Your Generation

Our generation can be characterized as live fast die young. It's an age consumed by temporary highs, unique jargon, and of course, a looming presence of social media. As a millennial, there are often times where I feel out of touch with my generation and know that I am not the only one who feels this way. And so, I present "19 Signs You're a Grandmother In Your Own Generation."

1. You often wonder about the origins of our lingo. You're dying of a laughter? Okay, if you say so. I suppose that's a better way to go than most.

2. And are constantly looking up slang words on urban dictionary because unfortunately there's no course titled "How to Be Lit With Your Homies 101"

3. When you finally get comfortable enough with a word, you're about fifty years too late because there's a new word.

4. There's just a constant struggle with you trying to keep up with the crowd.

5. You turn on the radio only to turn it off because you're either baffled or appalled by what's playing.

6. Getting to bed before midnight is of high priority in your life.

7. And so, your friends know not to make plans with you to go out at 10 pm because that's just madness.

8. And on the off chance that you decide to grace any night scene, you often regret it because you can't imagine how anyone can enjoy listening to music at that volume without having their eardrums bleed.

9. Because of this, people often question your idea of a good time. (Shout out to TGIF for Bingo Wednesdays.)

10. And nothing sounds more exciting than baking with your girlfriends.

11. Technology is your worst enemy.

12. When you see someone wearing shorts and a t-shirt in 60 degree weather, you become genuinely concerned for their health.

13. When you discovered snapchat filters, your reaction was probably similar to that of a cat with new ball of yarn.

14. You strive for practicality in all aspect of your life, especially in your attire.

15.You have to stop yourself from calling people who are less than a year younger than you "sweetie" or "hun" because you don't want to sound condescending.

16. Your solution to any ailment is tea with honey and lemon. Sore throat? Tea with honey and lemon. Stuffy nose? Tea with honey and lemon. Death? Tea with honey and lemon will probably help.

17. You find yourself often complaining about the little things that our generation does and reminisce over the "good old days".

18. Even though, you're only twenty years old and the only time period of your life that could possibly qualify as the "good old days" were when you were a fetus.

19. When you heard #freekodak was trending, your first thought was that something was wrong with those disposable cameras from Kodak company. Yeah, that's apparently not what it's about.

20. You've finally given up trying to keep up with our generation because you're truly enjoying life and grandmothers are wonderful beings, anyways.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
