Why It Is Okay To Be Lazy In Quarantine
Cameron Marr

I am sure you, like me, have seen lots of stuff on social media about trying to stay active. People you know are posting and saying all they have done in their days to not be lazy or ragging on the lazy people. Honestly, I am tired of seeing it. There was so much pressure before the virus to look skinny and be fit; but now? It is much worse. If you aren't posting about the push-up challenge or starting a new diet or learning more recipes, then you are doing nothing of value.

I understand that some people are taking this time to learn new things and start new hobbies. For me, it has been hard. I moved home from college which all in itself was hard. I went from living alone and doing whatever I wanted to moving back into my parent's home and back to their rules. Not only that, but my school was made online, which is terrible. The teachers have been nice, but let me tell ya, it did not get easier - thought that is what everyone thought. It has been a rollercoaster.

Some days I wake up productive. I do my whole skincare routine, and do my hair and makeup and get all my work done for the week to get ahead. Most days, though, I don't even brush my hair and I put off school work until the next day, eating only sweets or junk food. Honestly, I'm okay with that.

This time with being quarantined is unprecedented times for anyone my age. Most of us have not experienced anything like this in our whole lifetime. It's very weird. I love my family, but I think we have all realized that as we have all been stuck in the house together without a way out for over a month, we need a break.

I think it is awesome for the people who can be productive every day and get up and get themselves ready; as well, the people who can work out every day and learn new hobbies. I don't think I will ever be there. I think about it in a sense of if I were to worry all the time about what other people say I should be doing, then I wouldn't be bettering myself. The only way to truly better myself is to do what is good for me in the long run, and that includes rest mentally. Comparing our individual productivity to each other isn't going to better anyone.

We are all beautiful and different, in a beautiful but different way.

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?


You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.
