A Blog Post I Will Probably Regret

"Be like Aslan," she wrote.

I’m tired, y’all.

Tired of not fully understanding my French reading. Tired of not having proper time to go the the Rec. Tired of my phone being broken.

Above all, dear reader, I am tired of being a Millennial.

Not because I’m ashamed of my Millennial brothers and sisters. Not because I wish I was born in another era (that’s a whole other story). But because I’m tired of being bashed in popular media.

Thought Catalog

Start off by caring a lot. Put a great deal of time and energy into your appearance. Change outfits five times just to go to the deli.

Album: Black Sun, 4th Album
Release Date: May 15, 2007
