If you did ANY of these things as a kid, you’re depressed now
If you listened to Lana during your formative years… I’m so sorry
Honestly, I don't know how anyone our age escaped childhood without clinical depression. Between tumblr culture and the Jonas Brothers break-up and the fact that our parents were too scared to let us ride a bike around alone, we were all kind of destined to be fucked up.
And like…unfettered access to the internet? As a child? Who the fuck decided that was a good idea? That's the reason kids are killing each other for Slenderman!
I know most of us are depressed, but some of us are just Bound 2 be more depressed than others. Especially if we've been sad bois and girls from a young age. If you did ANY of these things as a kid, you're depressed now. Scientifically confirmed.
Did really well on standardized tests
Or weirdly enjoyed them.
Listened to Lana Del Rey or Marina and the Diamonds during your formative years
Like, of course you're fucked up now.
Had FREAKY reading abilities
You were in Accelerated Reading, weren't you?
Listened to the most sinister of boy bands
You FELT every word to "When You Look Me In The Eyes" and you still have zero faith you'll find someone that inspires such EMOTION
Let your online pets die
This extends to Neopets, Webkinz, Nintendogs. You just got bored with those little fuckers.
Listened to the Veronicas so frequently you still remember they exist
ESPECIALLY this song.
Had a love for Kellin Quinn
Or any angsty pop punk boy.
Kept a diary
Where you wrote about being sad.
Got all As
You cried when you didn't get a sticker on your assignment.
Went to Catholic school
Once a nun gave me detention because I ate Skittles in the library. It's no wonder I have mental health issues.
I'm really sorry we were destined to be this way from the time we were try-hards in elementary school. I guess it's the way we're supposed to be. Or maybe that's just the Prozac talking. Lmaoooooooo.
The rules of 2019 have already been decided and there’s nothing we can do about it
People are already mad
by Caroline Phinney
I feel kind of bad for 2019 because people are already mad at it and it hasn't even started. It's like when you get with someone following a breakup and you're already assuming they're cheating on and lying to you, because why would anyone ever be genuine? How can you blame us though? Even if…
An Instagram influencer told us how to travel the world for free (or at least cheap AF)
Fine, I’m the Instagram influencer
by Nian Hu
So everyone's always asking me how I'm able to afford all of my many, many glamorous vacations to exotic destinations like Thailand and Greece. The answer, of course, is that I'm chronically broke and I literally wear the same three shirts over and over again. Now there's a solid money-saving hack! But another part of…
