We've all seen some of the most insane things millennials are blamed for ruining. While most of us don't take these articles seriously, it's still pretty annoying that anyone could possibly believe it. We're so much more than what the news stations claim. Here are some of the funniest things millennials have been blamed for.

1. Millennials are killing the napkin industry

I wish I was kidding

2. Millennials are killing the sport of running

I mean, okay, I'm okay with killing this one.

4. Millennials are killing the soap industry

I guess we're just dirty deviants.

5. Millennials are killing face-to-face interactions, thanks to smart phones

But who invented the smart phone? A millennial? Who gave the smart phones to us? That's what I thought. Go home.

6. Millennials are killing corked wine because they prefer canned, twist off, or boxed wine.

Tragic.

7. Millennials are killing department stores

Yeah, absolutely, not because someone invented the convenience of Amazon or anything.

8. Millennials are killing the diamond industry

Well why are they so expensive? How do you expect us to afford that when we can't find jobs?

9. Millennials have killed crowdfunding

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room.

When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
