Our generation loves to complain. We don’t care that something isn’t a life or death situation, we complain anyway. We complain it’s too hot or it’s too cold and that we’re tired or we’re hungry. Blah blah blah.

We all know our problems aren’t real, but continue to whine anyway. While people are starving for food and shelter, we nag ourselves with inconsequential BS on the reg.

We complain on Facebook and Twitter — wherever our “voice” can be heard, we complain on it. Let’s take a look at some of Gen-Y’s biggest “problems.”

Waking Up Before Your Alarm

As you enter the working world, one of the most valuable things you realize is the need for sleep. Unfortunately, as many people have experienced, once you wake up, you’re up for good. One of the worst things that can happen is waking up an hour or more before your alarm goes off. No matter how much you are still tired, sometimes it is impossible to fall back asleep, so you just watch the clock until it’s time to get up and ready for work, #losing.


Thinking You Aced A Test When You Failed

I walked out of my LSAT thinking I got a 170, grinning from ear to ear. Unfortunately, one month later, I was graced with a score much, MUCH lower than that. It sucks when you invest so much of your time into something, only to have it blow up in your face. Something like this takes a toll on your confidence and it is sooo hard to bounce back. It’s important to always stay positive because if you think you can, well then, you should be able to. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, as many have witnessed before.


Finding Out Your Partner Cheated On You From Someone Else

It’s bad enough having your partner cheat on you, but to hear it from someone else is heart wrenching. That confrontation has got to be one of the more difficult to deal with. You will feel hurt and betrayed because this person you have invested so much time, trust, love and energy in didn’t even have the decency to tell you about their indiscretion themselves.


Your Best Friend Dating Your Ex

It’s bad enough watching your ex date another person, but when it is your best friend — well that’s just f*cked up. Typically your ex and BFF were close because of their mutual love for you, but this can backfire. It’s hard to meet people and this is a semi-easy option. They already know all of the details about one another, since you tend to talk to both of them about each other.


Wanting To Buy Something You Can’t Afford

How many people out there online shop for sh*t they know they can’t afford? We love torturing ourselves; we try on items we have no intention of buying just for fun. We typically fail to realize how fortunate we are with the possessions we have. Instead we focus on all the things we wish we could have.


Running Out Of Weed When Hungover

Everyone knows the cure-all to a hangover is weed. Ain’t nothing like that first bong rip after a brutal night out to dull the pain of your pounding headache. Unfortunately, the more you drink, the earlier you wake up; this is a huge problem since weed delivery does not begin until 12 pm.


Being The Most Sober In A Crowd

What is worse than being in a packed club dead sober? You think you are being smart trying to pace yourself at a pregame, only to realize you didn’t drink enough. Now you’re squished, getting your feet stepped on by a bunch of your f*cked up friends. You really never realize how annoying everyone is until you are the most sober of the group.


Drunk Eating

This is a regret far worse than f*cking the wrong person the night before. Nothing ruins a week-long effort at the gym quite like a pizza blacked out at 4 am. This has happened to me far too many times, in fact it happened last night.


Thinking You Look Good When You Don’t

You go out thinking that the unique outfit you just picked up at the vintage store is hipster and fashionable… until you meet up with your friends and they all have a look of disgust on their faces. This happens to both guys and girls and maybe more so with guys, since they lack the fashion sense females have. Argyle sweater? I think not.

What We Should Take Away From The Recent Tragedy At Rutgers

As a Rutgers alumna, I was deeply saddened to learn about the death of Caitlyn Kovacs. While Caitlyn is too young for me to have ever attended university with her, I’m sure we shared many of the same experiences at Rutgers. I imagine Caitlyn to have been, like most sophomores, excited for her second year. […]

If More People Traveled, The World Would Be A More Peaceful Place

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always dreamed about traveling to faraway places. My mind has constantly wandered to lands I’ve never been to. There is nothing more intoxicating than being immersed in the unfamiliar, and there is something inexplicably calming about being on the move. It’s as if the farther you go, the more […]

Mondays Aren’t Bad…You Just Hate Your Job

The Monday blues are like herpes… either you have them or you don’t. Either you’re waking up Monday morning detesting its presence or you’re leaping out of bed, ready to start the week. Because, contrary to popular belief, Mondays themselves aren’t horrible, you just hate what you have to do on them. It’s been said that […]

Motivation Is What Gets You Started, Habit Is What Keeps You Going

The world is filled with dreamers and lightly – very lightly – scattered with doers. Everyone (and everyone’s grandmother) has big dreams and high hopes for the future. We want money, fame, love, excitement, success and combinations thereof. Nearly all of these dreamers believe that they can one day attain their hearts’ desire, but as […]

There are guys with guts, like David Blaine, and then there are guys with guts, like Jason Segel. The former requires audacity, resolve and grit, the latter requires a laid-back attitude and years of cultivated hops. While one attracts stares and ideas of grandiosity, the other is real and genuine. The rest of the world […]
