17 Phrases That Gen Z Kids MUST Stop Saying
Start writing a post

Let's be real, there are so many new words and phrases that my generation says that make absolutely no sense to adults. I am not sure who comes up with some of them or how they become trendy, but there have been some really interesting terms in the past couple of years. Honestly, it is hard for me to keep up with the meanings of all of them. I am not sure I even use them correctly. Will the world start speaking in Gen Z? The future will only tell us.

1. "Lets get this bread"

Lets get this bread

Honestly this one just makes me hungry.

2. "Weird flex but ok"

Weird flex but ok

I think the reason I don't like this one is because "flex" reminds me of working out and working out is hard.

3. "It's lit"

It's lit

"Yeah man, this party is soooooo lit!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Just stop. Like please, stop.

4. "Gucci"

Gucci

We probably just say it because we wish we could afford it.

5. "Yeet"

Yeet

At a certain point autocorrect is going to correct "yet" to "yeet."

6. "That ain't it"

That ain't it

Who is chief though???

7. "Finna"

Dab

"Finna" followed by "imma" makes me cringe the most.

8. "Low key"

Low key

"Yeah, low key it may be high key" - Only by Nicki Minaj

9. "It be like that"

It be like that

It really do be like that though!

10. "Eskit"

Eskit

I don't even get what this one means but that doesn't stop me from saying it!

11. "Bet"

Bet on it

Don't you mean bet on it? #HSM2

12. "No balls"

No balls

Maybe we should stop talking like pre-teen boys?

13. "That's rad"

Rad

I feel like Brandy Melville would slap this on a plain white t-shirt and call it a day.

14. "Salty"

Salty

What about pepper...?

15. "Goals"

Goals

"Omfg you guys are such goals."

16. "Spill the tea"

Spill the tea

Tbh that would really hurt if someone took this literally...

17. "Pics or it didn't happen"

Pics

"Guys! Let's take hella pics tn."

Cringing yet? I will admit I am guilty in saying a lot of these terms. For those of you who get annoyed with any of these terms, I agree and think they are getting repetitive. Honestly, it may be crushing our vocabulary. For real, imagine walking into your first job and saying to your boss "Let's get this bread!" Enough said, let's go back to talking real English.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

8370

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

812

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

6758
Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4971

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
