Sometimes there isn’t enough caffeine in the world to face adulting. You know what I’m talking about, those days you just want to crawl back under the covers and forget about life. Those days you want to curl up with a good book, a cup of coffee, and forget about all of your responsibilities happen to all of us. Sadly, we can’t just request an adultier adult and call out sick for the day. Life goes on. We must go on with it, even if we do so kicking and screaming.
This blog is about life. The good days, the bad days, the kicking and screaming days… and everything in between. Fill up a cup and sit down with us for awhile.
Most of the posts are written by me, Lisa, but sometimes my friends will come along to guest as well.

What is a Millennial Anyway?
It’s possible you’ve heard that term used as a pejorative these days but millennial is really just a term to describe a group of people born within a certain time frame. Here’s what Wiki says:
Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are the demographic cohort following Generation X. There are no precise dates for when this cohort starts or ends; demographers and researchers typically use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years. Millennials, who are generally the children of baby boomers and older Gen Xers, are sometimes referred to as “Echo Boomers” due to a major surge in birth rates in the 1980s and 1990s. The 20th century trend toward smaller families in developed countries continued, however, so the relative impact of the “baby boom echo” was generally less pronounced than the original post–World War II boom.
Okay, so what does it mean? In short, it means you were born within a certain year range. That range varies according to who you ask, with some sources putting it as early as the late 70s and others putting it as late as the mid-80s. The United States Census Bureau uses 1982–2000 so I’m going to go with that, although this is not to exclude anyone else. If you were born in ’80 or ’81 and you consider yourself a Millennial, it’s all good.
Millennials have been accused of being selfish and lazy. We’ve been called entitled and out of touch with reality. The truth is, we’re people just like everyone else. We’re living. We’re growing. We’re experiencing life. That’s what this blog is all about – living life. If you remember the good old days of Nickelodeon cartoons, America Online, Yahoo! chat rooms, you never missed a Friday night of TGIF programming, you didn’t have a cell phone until you were 16 or older and you or your family had a Blockbuster card, then you might like the things we write about here.
So hit up your local Starbucks and sit down with us for a while!
