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?

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
