The 10 Millennials Found In Every Group Chat

The 10 Millennials Found In Every Group Chat

You've definitely seen these people before.

If you have an iPhone (or even if you don't, respect to those of you still out there with Galaxies), you know the struggle/fun/craziness that is THE group chat.

You know the one- that main chat you've had since forever ago that's always blowing up your phone. Chances are if you're in one, you have a love/hate relationship with it. Chances are you also can recognize the different types of people that can be found in EVERY group chat.

Some of these might apply to more than one person, just as one person might possess many of these. In any case, you've definitely been one of these people before whether you realized it or not (and I can tell you I'm guilty of almost everyone on this list).

1. The "Look At This!" Guy

We all know this guy. This is the person who is constantly finding and sharing online quizzes, whether they're from Buzzfeed, Cosmo, Facebook (or who knows where). Of course, the quiz person needs to send ALL of them in the chat and tells everyone to "omg take this RIGHT NOW!". And personally, you could care less what celebrity is your long-lost twin or why your personality is compatible with a pop tart, but if it makes quiz guy happy, you'll occasionally oblige.

2. The Landfill

If you are this person, don't feel bad. Every group needs one. This is the person who, of no fault of their own, just automatically becomes the subject of everyone's teasing and sarcasm- essentially a dump. It doesn't matter what they do. Whether they send a funny meme or tell a story about their day or even just don't say anything, they are ROASTED and roasted HARD for no apparent reason. PSA: To all of the roastee's out there, you are not alone. You WILL get through this... someday.

3. The "Lord Almighty"

Pardon my slight misuse of the name here, but this is just that one person who somewhat steers the mood and direction of the whole chat. This is the type of person who could say the most random or crazy comment ever and everyone would treat it as if it came from the very mouth of God. They could just simply say "hi" and the entire chat will light up with responses and compliments. They can post a Snapchat of a good sunset and everyone will be shook. They can send one Hannah Montana meme and it will make everyone's day. This guy doesn't ever need to try because he is automatically loved by everyone. *Jason, yes this is completely about you*.

4. The Loud One

This is the chick who is ALWAYS saying something in the group chat. She's constantly telling stories or asking questions or just being VERY present. This is the type of person that might not be the best at knowing how to read a mood or when the chat is just taking a break or when everyone's busy and can't talk. This girl may come off as an annoyance some of the time, but deep down everyone loves her and will listen to her stories just for the sake of listening (at least I hope you do, guys??).

5. The Laugh King

My all time favorite. This is the guy who is constantly making everyone *literally* laugh out loud (or even just slightly chuckle on the inside). And most of his craft lies in memes. Endless memes. Memes for days. MEMES FOREVER. This guy must either spend hours each day scouring the internet and iFunny or have an actual person he pays to get his meme fix, because in every (and I do mean EVERY) situation, he somehow always has a limitless supply of memes and jokes that are perfectly applicable to whatever's happening in the chat.

6. The Looooooooong Paragrapher

If this is you, no worries- I've been guilty of this one many a time. This is the girl who just has all the feelings. ALL of them. ALL THE TIME. At least once a week, she'll compose a novel, complete with historical references, alludes to the most classic works of literature, and a full bibliography, and send it in the group chat. These multiple paragraphs are usually something along the lines of how much she loves everyone or how much of a hard time she's been having lately or how much she misses being with her friends. This girl is definitely predictable and yes, reading books in text form can get old, but everyone secretly enjoys the sentiment and love contained in these multi-paragraphs... right?

7. The "Lie Low" Guy

This is that one guy in the chat who was added at the beginning for some weird reason that no one remembers and is just kind of... there. He doesn't say anything or contribute to the conversation. He doesn't ever reply when someone asks him a question, even when they know that he read it. He just sits there and lays low. Listens. Watches... waiting to move in for the kill.

8. The Late One

This is the guy who NEVER enters a conversation at the right time. He always misses important dates and questions. He's always late by at least an hour and by the time he does reply, the conversation has already moved on. He tries desperately to find his way back in, but somehow always has the bad luck of not looking at or being around his phone when the conversation is really lit. Or he has the conversation on mute. @Marshall

9. The Lost One

This is the person in the chat who never understands what's going on. When someone tells a joke or sends a meme, they'll respond 5 minutes later with a vague "haha". When someone tells a story, they'll reply with the classic "lol". When someone shares news that affects the whole group, they'll come into the conversation with a good old "what?". Much like the late one, this person just doesn't keep up or must simply have better things to do. Sorry we aren't good enough for you, Charissa.

10. The Lit One

This is the dude who ALWAYS knows how to keep it lit. He'll send memes at the right time, he'll tell a joke when the chat is getting awkward, he'll be the first to send a hello text when the chat's been dead for a few days. This guy just knows how to keep the party going and he makes everybody smile, no matter what the topic is. This is the guy we all need in our group chats, honestly.

The next time you get a text in your main group chat, check which one of these categories that person fits into. I guarantee you, you will find something to fit everyone. Or if not, let me know the different types of people you've found in your group chats! There's some characters out there, for sure.

A Letter To The Grandpas Who Left Far Too Soon

The thoughts of a girl who lost both of her grandpas too early.

Dear Grandpa,

As I get older, my memories are starting to fade. I try to cling to every last bit of memory that I have of you. There are certain memories that have stuck well in my brain, and I probably will never forget them, at least I hope I don't. I remember your smile and your laugh. I can still remember how your voice sounded. I never want to forget that. I catch myself closing my eyes to try to remember it, playing your voice over and over in my head so that I can ingrain it in my memory.

I always thought you were invincible, incapable of leaving me. You were so young, and it caught us all by surprise. You were supposed to grow old, die of old age. You were not supposed to be taken away so soon. You were supposed to see me graduate high school and college, get married to the love my life, be there when my kids are born, and never ever leave.

My heart was broken when I heard the news. I don't think I had experienced a pain to that level in my entire life. At first, I was in denial, numb to the thought that you were gone. It wasn't until Thanksgiving, then Christmas, that I realized you weren't coming back. Holidays are not the same anymore. In fact, I almost dread them. They don't have that happy cheer in the air like they did when you were alive. There is a sadness that hangs in the air because we are all thinking silently how we wished you were there. I hope when I am older and have kids that some of that holiday spirit comes back.

You know what broke my heart the most though? It was seeing your child, my parent, cry uncontrollably. I watched them lose their dad, and I saw the pain that it caused. It scared me, Grandpa, because I don't ever want to lose them like how they lost you. I can't imagine a day without my mom or dad. I still see the pain that it causes and how it doesn't go away. There are good days and there are bad days. I always get upset when I see how close people are to their grandparents and that they get to see them all the time. I hope they realize how lucky they are and that they never take it for granted. I wish I could have seen you more so that I could have more memories to remember you by.

I know though that you are watching over me. That is where I find comfort in the loss. I know that one day I will get to see you again, and I can't wait for it. I hope I have made you proud. I hope that all that I have accomplished and will accomplish makes you smile from ear to ear. I hope that the person I marry is someone you would approve of. And I hope that my kids get more time with their grandpa than I did because the amount I got wasn't fair.

I want to say thank you for raising your child to be the best parent ever because they will one day be the best grandparent ever. Just like you.

My Dearest Friend, The Never Dying Rose

To my dear friend, may our love will never fade.

Do you have that special someone in your life that never fails to brighten up your life? That special someone who you look at with an awing passion. No matter if it is a friend, coworker, love interest, significant other, family member, or whatever the case may be; These people are truly a blessing.

While visiting Mercer Botanical Gardens in North Harris County with a beloved friend of mind, we stumbled across a new addition to the gardens: The Shakespeare Garden. The garden was named after England's very own William Shakespeare. If you're wondering who that is, he is one of the most well-known poets of all time, gracing the world with heart pounding, mind-boggling poems.

While exploring his garden, we came across a plaque that reads, "The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem; For that sweet odor which doth in it live." That quote immediately captured my inner poet. I began to endlessly explain the quote's meaning, in my opinion at least, to my friend. I elaborated on how the rose is a symbol of love and all of the other “ideal” happiness in life. Every time we see a rose, we think it is more beautiful than it actually is because we are consumed with the idea of the "perfect" love. But boy was I wrong, after reading the entire Sonnet, I was fully able to capture its meaning. So while I laid upon the grass, I read Sonnet 54:
O how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give!
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odor which doth in it live.
The canker-blooms have full as deep a dye
As the perfumèd tincture of the roses,
Hang on such thorns, and play as wantonly,
When summer’s breath their maskèd buds discloses;
But for their virtue only is their show,
They live unwooed, and unrespected fade,
Die to themselves. Sweet roses do not so;
Of their sweet deaths are sweetest odors made;
  And so of you, beauteous and lovely youth;
  When that shall vade, my verse distills your truth.

For those not able to understand the difficult speaking patterns of Older English, Here the modern translated version:

Beauty seems so much more beautiful when it comes with honesty and integrity. Roses are beautiful, but we think they’re even more so because of their sweet scent. Wildflowers have as deep a color as fragrant roses; their thorns are the same, and their beauty broadcasts just as loudly when summer opens their buds. But because their only virtue is their looks, no one wants or respects them and they die unnoticed and alone. Sweet roses don’t suffer that fate. When they die, the most fragrant perfumes are made from their corpses. The same is true of you, beautiful youth. When you fade away, my poems will preserve your essence

Then I realized what he meant! Sometimes the things that society deems "ugly" have the same qualities as the things that we deem "beautiful", but the "ugly" things do not receive the same respect and recognition. Then he goes on to dedicate the poem to his "beautiful youth".

So here I am, awed by Sonnet 54. I realize that my rose, that is even more beautiful to me because of her sweet, thoughtful, caring, personality, is my friend that accompanied to the gardens: Catherine Caballero. She is my love. Not romantically, but of friendship. I know that if I ever need someone to talk to, she is always there for me with open arms, and vice versa. Yes, I haven't been there since the very beginning, and yeah maybe we don't tell each other every little detail that goes on in each other lives. Yes, there are times when she aggravates the soul out of me, and me to her. (Me to her more often, because I am one VERY annoying person) Yes, there are times when we become super mad at each other and simply just want to kill each other. Stil, I am forever grateful for our friendship.

I love her, from the apex of my heart to my superior vena cava. My love for her pumps throughout my heart travels through my pulmonary circuit and then travels to every single part of my body through the aorta. (Sorry, that was the inner future doctor in me). She's a year younger than I am, so I try to best to help guide her on the right path. Always having her best interest at heart.

Teaching her to never submit to the cruelty that this harsh world may through her way. Teaching her to never let a guy take advantage of her, or to never take advantage of a guy. Teaching her self-defense and many other valuable life skills. She is such a sweetheart, she hardly does anything wrong. But when she does, best believe that I am there to tell her exactly what she did wrong. When I graduate this Spring and move thousands of miles away from her to attend college, I know that I am going to miss her dearly.

My dear friend, thousands of mile away, for years. The only thing connecting us is FaceTime. However, I have strong faith that our friendship will endure the test of time and distance. So like Shakespeare dedicated Sonnet 54 to his beloved, I am dedicating this article to her, my dearly beloved friend.

My dear Catherine, may our friendship never fade. May it not dissipate, for it was not built to disintegrate. I will forever cherish the memories that we share, holding on to each moment with every gasping breath. Thank you for blessing me with your unwavering friendship, putting up with me through all of my mood swings, ups, and downs. Even though you know how to push every single one of my buttons, somehow, as if like magic, you know how to carefully sew those buttons back on. I do not know where life after graduation will take our friendship, but I know for certain that I will try my best to keep you in my life, until my very last breath. For A.L.W.A.Y.S., F.O.R.E.V.E.R., for our L.O.V.E.



For our


My dear, as I tear up writing this, just know that you are one of the roses in my life. A rose that will never die. A rose that never loses a pedal. A rose that will always carry that sweet aroma that I love so dearly.
