Signs You Are A True Millennial

Ever been referred to as a millennial and had no idea what it meant?

“Millennials refer to the generation born between 1982 and 2004 or people reaching young adulthood in the early 21st century.”

Here are the sure signs that you are a millennial too:

  1. If you get all the latest news on social media platforms. You check whatever is trending on Twitter or Facebook to know what’s happening in the world.Image result for social media platforms news
  2. If the first thing you do when you wake up is reach for your phone. You probably slept while holding it too, we all do this, no judgement.
  3. If you don’t own a watch and even if you do its mostly for decorative purposes. I mean who still uses watches these days anyway.
  4. If you have mastered the art of taking selfies. Yes taking selfies is an art; using the right filter, what angle to take the picture from, whether or not to use a selfie stick, getting the right lighting, etc.Image result for taking selfies meme
  5. You overuse emojis. Its impossible to text without using emojis, I mean how else will the other person understand how you feel?Β Image result for emojis
  6. If you don’t know where the TV remote is because who watches TV anymore when every show can be found online.
  7. You barely use Facebook anymore and when you do it’s to check up on what your old classmates are up to, basically stalking.
  8. Your entire playlist is made up of trap music. Β Image result for trap music meme
