6 Reasons Millennials Are Terrible

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a complaint about millennials, I could probably put a down payment on this whole "house" thing everyone's talking about.

6 Reasons Millennials Are Terrible

If I had a dollar for every time I heard a complaint about millennials, I could probably put a down payment on this whole "house" thing everyone's talking about. Personally, I agree - millennials are terrible. A scourge on our society. Here's everything millennials are doing wrong.

1. They're so easily offended.

Back in the old days, nobody got offended about anything ever. People were racist, sexist, and homophobic, and they liked it that way! Millennials are too sensitive. (But have you heard about people saying "happy holidays" instead of "merry Christmas"?! Now that I can get upset about.)

2. All they do is accrue debt.

Back in the old days, we paid for college out of pocket! College was $5 and we liked it that way! There was none of this nonsense about "student loans." If you ask me, that's the easy way out.

3. They're so addicted to their phones.

What are they doing on those things? Social networking? The Twitter? Or, God forbid, they're checking the news and staying up to date on current issues? For shame.

4. They're so lazy.

Really, you work in food service because you haven't been able to afford college yet? Or you're paying your way through college with a demeaning, low-paying job that forces you to work long hours for little compensation? You live with your parents because you'd rather not take up a mortgage and ruin your credit and the economy? So lazy, Martha Stewart even says so.

(Didn't she go to prison for insider trading? Now that's an honest way to make money. Un-lazy.)

5. They're so full of themselves - all they do is take selfies.

Back in the old days, we commissioned portraits for thousands of dollars, then sat for five hours while our visage was painstakingly put to canvas, and then we hung them above the fireplace so the whole house could see.

Studies show millennials have higher self-esteem than previous generations. How dare they love themselves?

6. They've turned dating into a joke.

Back in the old days (before this Facebook and Tinder nonsense), we went on uncomfortable first dates where we knew nothing about the other person, and we liked it! And before that, we had to settle for someone our parents picked out for us, and we liked that too!

Tl;dr: millennials are just awful. Don't be a millennial. Be like Martha Stewart or Breitbart News - tired, old, bitter, and unnecessarily critical of a generation they can't hope to understand. Thank you, baby boomers, for destroying our economy, social security, the job market, and the middle class, then pinning it on us. Bye!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

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.
