10 Instagram Pictures All Millennials Take During Their First Beach Day Of The Summer
Lauren McCally

In the days of the internet, more specifically Pinterest, it's too easy for a person to find ideas of how they want to take pictures. I mean, simply search "beach poses Instagram" and bam, a whole bunch of ideas come up.

If you're stuck and looking for ideas, this is definitely another one of those places to look. There are some pretty silly ones out there, along with those that are cute, and then some that are just so basic that you want to roll your eyes.

That being said, here are 10 of those pictures you will likely see.

1. The two person picture

Especially if you're with a friend or family member.

2. The ballerina leap

I'll admit though, the sunset is a nice touch.

3. The feet with the ocean

No joke, I have literally done one of these every single day that I've been on the beach. This one happens to include the Snapchat filter in the top left corner.

4. The selfie

Because everyone does sefies.

5. Their food

This doesn't just apply to the beach or millennials, either.

6.  The ones that are truly Instagram-worthy

I mean, what really are the lengths that someone will go through in order to get the perfect picture?

7. Tanning

Or, at the very least, someone takes it for you.

8. The "look how much fun I'm having in the water" pic

Of course, if you're like me, then you probably don't normally get into the water anyway.

9. The sun hat pic

Yay! Big floppy hats that help block the sun!

10. And, of course, the posed "candid" picture

Candids are nice when they are actually candid.

And, we must not forget some of the ultra-cheesy captions that obviously accompany those pics.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
