MILLENNIALS

Hello people.

Do you ever think maybe we should use the word hello more? Why are we, as an increasingly tech focused world, so insistent on being informal. ‘Hi’. What about hello, how are you? I believe the ‘millennials’ are the last generation before people know the difference between not using cellphones 24/7, and not having them. This means we must not lose the art of language! Language is beautiful, and words are there for us to string together powerful and elegant sentences to capture other’s attention.

Have I captured your attention? Ok good.

Currently I am sitting in front of my computer screen, with a pack of skittles on my left and a peppermint-flavored coffee on my right. Sitting. Staring. With nothing coming to mind. HELP.

I have three more days until I fly back home, and I can’t think about anything else. I am distracted with the thought of being surrounded by my angels, all my friends and family. It is really getting to me, and I have no motivation for any of homework and studying (which is a lot, A LOT).

Wait, back to the millennials topic. There has been a lot of buzz around the whole ‘social media’ topic. Which I am not going to give my opinion on because I have like 200 instagram followers, and I particularly don’t care about instagram fame. BUT, I do think our generation, with the help of social media and our constant contact through cell phones, have created a new world! The power of technology has helped me so much while away at college. Whenever I start to get ‘home sick’ (where is my actual home?), I can literally call anyone around the world and talk to them WHILE seeing their face. Revolutionary. Amazing. I am so lucky face time is a thing!! Wow.

Well. That’s all I have to say for now. I am getting distracted while listening to Drake. Anyone relate?

Hotline bling me sometime. Did that make sense, or was that a really bad joke? I don’t know. You decide!

Until next time.
