I couldn’t stand there and let my life pass me by when I knew I wanted to focus on something. Read More

ADULTS:

People who collect paychecks, pay bills, and don’t live on their mama’s couch.

Pretty simple. Yet, somehow, a little short sighted? (We would hope so.)

Hey world hey. It’s us, the “Millennials.”

(Which is basically a fancy word for Gen Y/20-somethings/humans who grew up in the 90’s/blah blah you get it.) We wanted to take the opportunity to talk about ourselves (shocker!). It’s not lost on us that we have a freaking term coined after our public struggles. But, we’re not here to refute the Quarter Life Crisis. In fact, we’re here to explain it. 

Yes, we know the world thinks we look like a shiny new Porsche driving 80 mph straight into a tree. But bear with us. We’re not that bad.
