DARE: Call Someone You Love

If you're reading this, I dare you to pick up your phone and call someone you love. It doesn't have to be the longest conversation in the world, it can even be a minute long, but do it.

I was inspired this past weekend when I called my grandparents after, admittedly, quite a while. As soon as my grandpa picked up, he was absolutely ecstatic. We didn't talk long, and over subjects an outsider would call trivial but by the end, he was so happy, he started crying. I felt both comforted and guilty, because my grandpa was so incredibly thrilled to talk to me that it made both his and my day, but then I realized I shouldn't have waited for weeks to pass before I called him.

So, I want you to pick up the phone RIGHT NOW and call someone to just have a conversation with. It can be anyone!

A Family Member

As college students, our lives are completely hectic and yeah, you're rolling your eyes staring at the missed call from your mom but try calling her or your dad every once in a while - it'll make their day. They just miss you, after all.

A Friend

This gif is hilarious to me because we have come so far in terms of three-way calls, even from the That's So Raven days! Anyway, even if it's just a five-minute call, talk to your friends from high school every so often - they'll definitely appreciate it because they're probably just as homesick as you are.

A Girlfriend/Boyfriend

Just a random call can make your significant other's day, so why aren't you dialing?

A Crush

Whether if it's to confess your love or just to simply talk about that recent episode of The Flash that was on last night, talking to that one special person is definitely the best.

Don't let an opportunity to tell someone that you love them slip away, because you might run out of chances to do even that.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
