God forbid that avocado toast only had 2 slices of avocado

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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
