Ah, millennials. They just might be the most talked-about generation (or at least the one with the most internet think pieces written about them). Maybe our country’s problems are caused by them...or maybe they’ll fix our problems.
There’s some debate over what the birth year cutoffs are for defining a millennial, but most agree that they start with the early 1980s and run through the mid-1990s or early 2000s.
If you’re a millennial, you know that there are lots of common traits that a lot of us share. As the first generation to come of age in the new millennium, we’ve largely grown up with access to the computers at home and social media at our fingertips. This can be a double-edged sword: think kids glued to their cell phones, but also having easy access to more information than ever before. Read on for some painfully true (and hilarious) facts about The Millennials.™
Rosé is a lifestyle.
Millennials are putting off marriage.Whether they’re waiting to get married for financial reasons or otherwise, they’re not rushing to the altar.

Trying to find a job is a full-time job.The job market struggle is real.
They’re not the only ones addicted to technology.
