Single use plastic bags, thrift store shopping and veganism. Choice has become an important aspect of climate change solutions as millions of people have become more aware of their environmental impact. It has become increasingly normal to make various lifestyle changes in the name of sustainability. But would you choose not to have children because of climate change?
In my post high school naive mind, it was simple. We were young and jobless. We had the time and the freedom of going out instead of studying for exams. Our days were empty, waiting to be filled with adventure. But this new found freedom came at a cost. There was no more seeing the same faces every day. No more sitting on the oval laughing about stupid shit. No more cramming for a test together or late-night snapchatting mental breakdowns of how we were all doomed to fail.
We like to think that we are truly good people who act on the values and morals we’ve been taught. But what makes a ‘good’ person? No matter how polite, kind and selfless we try to be, we can’t escape the bad habits, hidden secrets, dark thoughts and guilty pleasures that haunt us daily.
Generation Z gets a bad wrap. Millennials get typecast as the lazy and entitled generation who talk in hashtags and can’t go a moment without their phone. Older people continue to complain about our vanity and apathy, worrying about our lack of political engagement and self-absorption. The truth is a lot more hopeful.
Hey! It’s me again! Your favourite carb-free, fat-free, sugar-free, salt-free, heroin-free, seasoning-free, vegetable-free, fruit-free, protein-free influencer! And now I’m really excited to announce that I’m going water-free! Did you know that water makes up around 70% of your body weight?
Astrology and self-care are the interchangeable top priorities of millennial, middle-class women today. As one of those new-age witches of Instagram and a rampant Aries, I’m here to let you know how the stars want you to relax and how to pamper yourself at your nearest convenience. And before any guys with tiny beanies and poorly maintained beards call me out because it’s “not real”, I’ve faked all my orgasms and you never seemed to notice. So be a friend and swallow a little bullshit for my enjoyment.
