Millennials often take the blame for problems that arise in society, and sometimes, it seems like society is millennials vs. the world. Some struggles that this generation goes through are light-hearted jokes, but many are systemic problems that need to be resolved. Here is a combination of real and first-world problems listed in a way that truly embodies the spirit of this generation: making fun of our deeper struggles as a coping mechanism!

1. Millenials ruin ​​literally everything

From ruining the diamond industry,to lunch, to even marriage, millennials have been accused of destroying industries as a generation. Darn millennials with a conscience about the harmful environmental impacts of the diamond industry or brands with inhumane practices. Why don't they just sit back and let the world continue on its path to destruction??

2. No one else will ever understand millennials

Isn't it just so darn frustrating when you want to talk to a colleague about Courage the Cowardly Dog or Rugrats, but because these shows are part of things that "only 90s kids will understand", your colleague probably won't understand it? Oh the pain when someone doesn't know what a tamagotchi is!

3. Millennials are not employable

If only you stopped buying avocado toast, you might be able to actually afford a house! It definitely doesn't matter that your generation entered the workforce at one of the worst times possible around the time of the Global Financial Crisis and as a result had to compromise pay just to get a job. No, that must not be the reason why. It's definitely the avocado toast.

4. Millennials are 'snowflakes'

Look at millennials being disruptive and angry after hearing someone make racist remarks. Why can't they just take a joke??? A small comment about how a Filipino American should "go back to China to pick rice or something" never hurt anyone right (except the millions of Asian minorities in Western countries who not only have their own diverse cultures, but also contributed so much to a country that will still view them as outsiders no matter what). And that sexual remark in the middle of a business meeting to 'lighten the mood' most definitely doesn't continue to perpetuate the idea that women are inferior in the workplace! Jeez, millennials really need to lighten up.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.

It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
