Midwest winters are brutal. Whether you are walking from class to class or from bar to bar, you need these 10 essential things in your purse to survive.

1. Chapstick

I mean duh, if you don't have this in your purse, are you even from the midwest?

2. Back up chapstick

Always have a backup. If someone takes your other one or heaven forbid you lose it, you need to have the back up in order to survive the rest of the day.

3. Portable charger

The cold temps cause phones to go into shock and die immediately. Always have a charger with you in case your phone succumbs to the weather.

4. Kleenex 

You go outside for 2 minutes and your nose starts running. Pack the Kleenex, you need it.

5. Aspirin 

You're gonna slip and fall on ice and your tailbone is going to hurt and you're going to want to take pain relievers stat.

6. Gloves

You're going to lose the pair of gloves you have on your hands because those things never stay on. Buy a pair of gloves from the dollar store and stash them in your bag.

7. Hand and feet warmers

These are essential for everyday life in the Midwest, thanks Mother Nature.

8. Starbucks gift card

With a Starbs on every corner, you need to have the funds to buy a warm latte.

9. Extra quarters

If you head downtown and want to park closer than a ramp, you need quarters to pay for street parking.

10. Lotion

Go to Bath and Bodyworks, buy the travel size lotion, and thank me later.

Be prepared for the Midwest winters by stocking up your purse with the essentials, and stay safe out there.

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.

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.
