Be a Millennial, and don’t let anyone tell you not to be.Take pride in being a special snowflake with dozens of participation trophies. Be afraid of your student debt. Be angry at your dismissal by people who can barely work a microwave. Be angry that they started a global recession. Be angry they don’t understand how difficult it is now on minimum wage, or to get through college while working. Scoff at their inability to put their phones on mute, and their dismissal of phones as loud and annoying. Delight in Hashtags and Twitter and Tumblr and Instagram and Snapchat. Fall in love with yourself as a millennial. Own the insults that come with the word.

Instagram the Apocalypse. Tweet Doomsday. Snapchat your death.

Be powerful, and different.
