Our generation can be called the the generation that breaks the rules, the rebels of traditional young adulthood. It is safe to say we have not followed the path of any previous generation and have not really taken much from them as far as life lessons and how we should go about finding success and happiness.
We came here to break the rules and reinvent the game. We currently live in the biggest generational gap in history and that is because the world is moving faster than it ever has before. What it means to be young is not what it meant to be young before. Now more than ever are we becoming more and more independent at such a young age as well as advantageous of the endless opportunities for adventure and personal growth come our way.
When we look back at what our generation is really standing for, it is one of the greatest double entendres in recent memory. We seem knowledgeable on paper and we stand behind social causes such as KONY and the presidential election. Too bad we forget about these social causes 3 days after they blow up on social media. We have the attention span of a fish and the alcohol tolerance of a bear.
What we will be remembered for is not the way we all decided to vote for Obama or the way we all decided to pile all this college debt on top of our heads. We will be remembered for knowing how to have a good time and not caring what our elders thought of how we interpreted leisure and recklessness thrills.
The love for drugs
Sure we may break the rules but we love having the ability to do what we want, to have control over our future. We strive for independence, so we can know that we were responsible for all the fun we’re having and the success we bring ourselves later in life.
What we will be remembered for is the fact that we saw life as something you should not take so seriously and that what’s really important is having a great story about the coed you banged the night before.
We’re just looking for the next best high we can get, and since it’s impossible to find one that lasts forever, we will keep doing our thing until our body physically cannot continue the adventure any longer.

I had the great romantic privilege of experiencing my first kiss when I was 15 (I was a late bloomer, okay?) at summer camp, of course. Within the span of a single month, I had two camp boyfriends and then proceeded to be single until I was 20. Like I said, I was a late […]
Dating… woof. The term itself sounds tiring, overwhelming and even intimidating. I mean, we read and write millions of blog posts each day about how to manage it, scale it and hopefully, succeed at it. But, do we really have a f*cking clue about what it really entails? We pretend that if we act a […]
I have lived through two divorces. I have seen love — or maybe, what I thought was love — go to shambles and tarnish. I think everyone can agree that seeing your parents fight (not argue or complain, but really get into it) is literally the worst feeling in the world. This may sound absolutely […]
These days, it seems like every person has fallen victim to an unfaithful significant other. At the very least, we all know somebody who’s been cheated on and probably, someone who’s cheated. Becoming more and more common, though, are the people who have forgiven a cheating boyfriend or girlfriend and tried to carry on with […]
It’s fun and it’s convenient, and other than a pair of sexy undies, you don’t invest much into it. You basically get to have a no-holds-barred humpfest and go about your day afterwards without needing to check on your partner. So what’s the catch when you take on a f*ck buddy? The Basics Your pseudo-relationship will […]
In today’s world, it seems like literally everyone is into the online dating scene. In fact, my dad found his girlfriend on JDate and they’ve been together for 10 years now.

Asking a girl where and what she wants to eat is a question as old as time. You might think you’re making things easier by asking her to choose, but in reality, you are just throwing yourself into a whirlwind of confusion and utter frustration. This video accurately sums up what it is like to […]
Soccer fans are truly the most unpredictable supporters of professional sports. During a match between Premier League opponents West Ham and Tottenham Spur on Saturday, one fan broke onto the Upton Park pitch.

If “Game of Thrones” is known for one thing, it’s mercilessly killing off major characters. I’m sure many of us have wished George R.R. Martin would have some sympathy when it comes to choosing who to kill off next. But, according to the man himself, things are only going to get more bleak. Martin recently spoke […]
What if we told you there’s a restaurant where every dish features bacon? Well, there is! It’s called Bar Brutus and you’d have to go to Montreal to experience such a heavenly place, but hey, it’s probably worth it. After all, this is bacon — on everything — we’re talking about. According to Huffington Post, Anthoni […]
To our grandparents, a large portion of what we say is white noise. They listen because they love us, not because they have any idea who Miley Cyrus is and what the VMAs are. Kevin Droniak shares a lot with his grandma as the two go for long drives. He sets his camera up and […]
