I Don’t Need This by//Kami Geron

Stop judging my age and my time!

The word “Millennials” is hurled like a curse word in high school. Constantly we hear things like “these Millennials are screwing this up” or “constantly changing that” and “it’s because of those dang Millennials!” Hold on, pause, what even are Millennials? By definition, a person reaching young adulthood in the early 21st century. Although in the eyes of everyone over 30, it sounds more like the death of society.

I’ve never been thrilled with generalization. I absolutely hate being categorized like I mean nothing individually. Sure I’m a kid, I’m 15! As a grown adult, shouldn’t you know right from wrong, like calling names. Last time I checked the entire world wasn’t still in kindergarten.img_7282

For example, on Valentine’s Day I went to Qdoba with my boyfriend. They had a promotion saying if you kiss at the register you could get a free entree. It sounded like a total steal since I absolutely love Qdoba. Ahead of us in line I saw an elderly couple kiss and just nudged my boyfriend like “how sweet”. When we got to checkout, the clerk was super weird about our quick smooch and almost looked disgusted. This wasn’t some random public display, it’s Valentine’s Day and it’s your promotion!

Fourth times a charm by//Ellen White

The episode opened with Nick crying and being upset because he didn’t know if he should go through with the season because he didn’t have a good gut feeling. This episode made me really mad because it gave a way a lot juicy stuff and now I know how the whole season ends. Keep on reading!

Checking out books with Sophie by// Sophie Owens

de-pizan

Italian author Christine de Pizan is definitely an original thug. She was writing poems about female heroism and the oppression of women before any women’s protest walk ever happened.

Although her first few pieces were more focused on the love of her husband, her attentions soon diverted to the ongoing issue. de Pizan was born in 1364 in Venice, Italy. Widowed, she took up writing to support herself. These verses met with success, and she continued writing ballads. After the Battle of Agincourt, she retired to a convent and died circa 1430.
