My Millennial Work Ethic

The stereotypical millennial is lazy, entitled, ruining relationships, and most of the things that were built for us. This stereotype mostly comes from the fact that we do things differently than our parents.

I went to college, got an internship when I graduated, got a job then got a better job. Not exactly what I call lazy. I started paying off my stereotypical millennial student loans and immersed myself into the 9-5 culture.

And it’s not easy for me. It’s not easy to work 5 out of the 7 days a week, to work for most of your life, to make your job your (basically) number one priority. It’s not easy for me to wake up early in the morning then work nonstop until it’s time to go. You don’t go at your own pace, there is a schedule and rules and you are supposed to follow them.

So in some ways, I’m the stereotypical millennial who wants to make their own schedule and work from my bed. Is it realistic? No, but a girl can dream!

Just because we dream, doesn’t mean we’re lazy. And it doesn’t mean all of us have the same dream. I know many people who thrive in a pressured 9-5 environment, but I’m just a stereotypical millennial when it comes to this!

6 Reasons Why Your Pet Is Better Than Most People

1. They’re always down to cuddle.

You could put a ton of effort into finding a relationship that might not even work out or you could just buy a cuddly cat that’s always down to snooze.

2. They’re always waiting for you when you get home.

Your pet is so reliable! They spend most of their days just waiting for you.

3. They get what you’re feeling.

Pets are very in tune with your emotions. If they know you’re sad, they’ll come cuddle. ┬áIf everyone at work annoyed you today, they’ll sit quietly and cheer you up.

4. They can be lazy when you’re feeling lazy,

See number five.

5. And they can be active when you’re feeling active!

Those rare moments when you actually feel like going on a run or doing yoga in your living room, your pet is eager to join right in.

6. You are their whole life.

No matter what, you will be the most important thing in your pet’s life. Right next to food and being able to run around and sniff and lick things.

1. I can binge eat and watch girly Netflix shows with no judgment.

I know a boyfriend would binge eat with me, but he just would not get the love between Meredith and McDreamy!

2. I usually don’t want to be cuddled when I sleep…

I don’t want all your sleep breath in my face as I’m trying to relax…

3. No bra? No make up? No problem!

Being alone means there’s no one to impress.

4. Sometimes I’m more productive when I’m by myself.

I don’t have to worry about anyone’s schedule, just my own errands to run.

5. I can be in my own head for a while.

Sometimes, I just don’t want to tell you how my day is going.

6. When I’m alone, I can just be me.
