11 Things Millennials Have Ruined For Everyone

The older generations -the ragged baby boomers and aging white women- are always looking for something to blame millennials for. We've just ruined so much for their last few years of life. To think, all of our advancements in technology, our progress in the medical field, our attempt to pull us from trillion dollar debt- it's all apart of a grander scheme to ruin the world for the older generations.

Millennials just want to live, at peace, trying to pick up the broken pieces left behind by our grandparents and parents. We're not here to ruin anything, although we may inadvertently do so.

We ruined the doorbell industry.

We just text "here" when we get to someone's home.

We ruined the post-sex cigarette.

Now, we just Juul right after sex.

Also ruined the post-dinner cigarette.

It's all about Juuls and Stigs.

We're not buying diamonds.

Sorry for killing the diamond industry, but we can barely afford an iced coffee, let alone a diamond ring.

And we're not watching cable TV.

Ever heard of streaming services?

We've ruined the work day.

Getting up to work the old 9-5 work day just isn't our style anymore.

And we've killed... wine corks.

Why not just drink from a wine bottle with a cap that screws on? Or, quit your whining and finish the whole bottle.

Can't forget about the time we killed mayonnaise, too.

Yeah, our generation got tired of eating salads comprised of mayonnaise, sorry.

And we've ruined the housing market.

Y'know, the whole "buy a house with a 30-year mortgage and hope you don't live the rest of your life in debt."

 We don't shop in bulk anymore.

If we shop in bulk, we forget about all of our food and let them spoil, then we vow to never shop in bulk again.

 And we've almost ruined Buffalo Wild Wings.

Us millennials just hate chain restaurants, don't we?

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
