I feel like we passed the point a while ago where the term “millennial” just became synonymous with “bummer.”

The boomers called us lazy, the Gen Xers tried to be supportive but got confused, and now Gen Z is sitting on Twitter picking apart every prosaic and mundane facet of Millennial existence to drag through the mud.

But for all that, I gotta admit…they’re not wrong.

10. Like a boss

And yet it never quite happens.


9. Who lives in a White House?

Recent events have allowed me to rewatch West Wing with a feeling of general disappointment rather than nauseated despair, so that’s something.


8. Can’t react


7. Serious business

We’re all still playing grown up games because we know we’ll never actually get there.

6. Get woke

I mean, it’s a decent first step.


5. Tick tock, tick tock

We know what it is, we just don’t understand it.

4. Spread the love

I mean yeah man, that’s the internet.


3. Carb up

Please just allow me this bright spot of happiness, I ask for so little.

2. Paws for reflection

For the record I’ve never been on board with this.

1. What a twist!

You fools, you’ve fallen right into our trap!

Maybe we should just do a rebranding. Some people call us Generation Y, and that seems to confuse folks enough that maybe it’ll just help us blend in. Let’s become the New Coke of ourselves. Nothing else has worked.

What’s the best or worst thing about your generation?
