25 Things To Give Up For Lent In 2019

It is that time of year again! Lent is quickly approaching, and soon it will be Easter. Lent is a time where we are called to give something up for 40 days, coinciding with the 40 days that Jesus went into the desert. During this time, Jesus was tempted by the devil and roamed around the desert. When he returned that is when he is crucified and dies on the cross, but then he rises from the dead on the third day, Sunday (Easter). This is why it is so important for us to reflect on our own lives and sacrifice something for these 40 days with Jesus. While there are many things to give up, this is just a small list of some possibilities, depending on what you struggle with. Be honest with yourself and choose something that is actually going to be a challenge. It's important to remember that even though you are giving something up, always love one another and love God.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
