Who wants to be a millennial?

Okay fine I’ll write a little bit more. DATED was really inspired by the fact that I just don’t feel like I fit into my generation. I just. I don’t get it. Why should I care about how many followers I have when I have amazing real life friends? Why should I care about Beyonce when I miss Destiny’s Child? Why do I have to go to so many goddamn festivals? And why do I have to dress like a native American princess while I’m there? I’m Filipino!
It’s just all very confusing for me. I miss the 90’s when guys asked girls on dates in person or on the phone. When we prized manners over brutal honesty. When people read books and not just tweets. And when Coachella didn’t exist. Okay fine it was started in 1999 and I’ve been twice. And I had a pretty decent time. AND I bought presale tickets for next year. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR???
I know, I’m negating my own point. I guess I just have mixed feelings about my generation. There are a lot of good things about us millennials damnit! I like that we value social causes, and start businesses that give back. I like that most people our age don’t think it’s okay to be racist, homophobic, or misogynist. That’s a plus. I mean the Civil Rights Act was passed in the 60’s. Schools were segregated until the 50’s. I’m mixed race. If I was born in the 50’s I guess half my body would be going to a white kindergarten and the other half would be going to a brown one?
That sounds terrible. And scientifically impossible, Maybe this millennial thing isn’t so bad after all. Maybe I’m just a negative bitch that needs to get with the times.
So what do you think? Do you want to be a millennial?
