Naked celebrities are people too

Millenial Meltdown

Imagine that it’s a Friday night. You know what that means: “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” Nestle Drumsticks and some Ibuprofen. A little medical marijuana for your, uh, restless foot syndrome. Maybe some friends.

Because the internet

We are a lazy generation — or so, at least, have we been dubbed over and over again. We are “millennials”, born and raised to create an era of the entitled, the selfish and the apathetic.

All millennials need to fight gender inequality

Millennials, or my generation, seeing as I was born in 1990, are sadly generalized as lazy, disrespectful, bawdy and privileged. Throwing salt on the wound, as I write this, Miley Cyrus holds the leading public vote for Time’s Person of the Year. Despite the bad reputation we hold in the
