Your Birthday As Told By Nick Miller
Tumblr

Happy Birthday to you! It's a time when you can reconnect with friends that you haven't spoken to in a while and when your birth into the world is celebrated. Nick Miller, who is a character from the TV show "New Girl, has had a hard time growing into the person he wanted to be. As a writer, I found that I could relate to some of his experiences (even though he's a fictional character). So here's to you and your birthday from Nick Miller!

1. When something doesn't go as you had planned on your birthday.

2. Speaking of planning, it can be difficult to get everyone on the same page for a party.

3. But your friends always come through for you.

4. As you get older, some things may make more sense to you.

Like the fact that things don't always stay the same, but that something better may be on the way.

5. And on your 21st birthday, you get to legally drink alcohol!

6. You may not think you've accomplished much by the time another birthday rolls around, but you've come farther than you think.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F06%2F636140433255716863-855518780_He-Proud-His-Successes.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=829&h=eb5c76bef4e533b99ade8dcad9556d022046a15c9008e94398b83a6efb43e632&size=980x&c=3531834956 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F06%252F636140433255716863-855518780_He-Proud-His-Successes.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D829%26h%3Deb5c76bef4e533b99ade8dcad9556d022046a15c9008e94398b83a6efb43e632%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3531834956%22%7D" expand=1]

7. Your birthday is your day to do whatever you choose.

8. But family parties can be embarrassing.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F06%2F636140443071122646-1741087818_f41a19c0fc441ceb9d886c7a73e6e673.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=593&h=d4d7bfe43000b5bc69a82e36ab36e8d2fc6eedba0eecbef6ac067d3bfbb9f931&size=980x&c=2376982912 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F06%252F636140443071122646-1741087818_f41a19c0fc441ceb9d886c7a73e6e673.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D593%26h%3Dd4d7bfe43000b5bc69a82e36ab36e8d2fc6eedba0eecbef6ac067d3bfbb9f931%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2376982912%22%7D" expand=1]

Nothing like bringing out the baby pictures and asking about your love life.

9. You may not have a significant other on your birthday, but that's okay. That just means more cake for you!

10. But if you are in a relationship, you can celebrate with them.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F11%2F06%2F636140471178367606287054119_Tumblr_ms7hjhs81o1rnwc9zo2_r1_250.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=209&h=aec99adab0e5f1288aa722a0f05abaf6667ba64d1a7dbf4de39f2b74533de3f8&size=980x&c=4030327988 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F11%252F06%252F636140471178367606287054119_Tumblr_ms7hjhs81o1rnwc9zo2_r1_250.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D209%26h%3Daec99adab0e5f1288aa722a0f05abaf6667ba64d1a7dbf4de39f2b74533de3f8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4030327988%22%7D" expand=1]

11. Then you realize that things might not always work out, but you get to celebrate another year of living.

12. You've made it to another year. Happy Birthday!

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.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. 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. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

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.
