To Whom It May Concern

If you're not here to make me smile go away

To Whom It May Concern

I am so stressed out I would rather just curl up in a ball under my blanket and sleep until I am 90 and dying. I don't want to have to write two essays, a presentation, and now an article for people to read on a late-night binge on the internet. I'm not feeling funny or happy or creative--I feel like literal poop.

I also don't get why people aren't allowed to just sit around and grieve for a little. What kind of dysfunctional society says "Sorry for your loss," and then forces you to get over it so they can grade a couple of papers that say nothing about you as a person or your capabilities as a student? Actually, nevermind as a student--I'm a human and I'm going through extremely weak human emotions and being forced to forge through them. If I keep it up anymore, I'm definitely going to a psych ward.

I am tired. I am immensely sad. I'm angry at how life works. AND I'm SO frustrated that no one seems to understand that I need a break. I want to keep my stress at bay and feel happy. I want to smile and mean it. I want to see happy things and feel happy they exist. I can't do that because I can't stop being sad but I can't feel that sadness and get through it because I have things to do. Does that seem normal to anyone, really?

I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemies to have an animal fall in love with them for 11 years and then have to hold them while they die. Like literally have them snuggling into you for dear life and then losing that life in half a second. It's awful and I'm messed up right now.

I need a break.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

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.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate
