So you’re a millennial…
Hang on. Does anyone actually know what a millennial is? I feel like society has coined this vague term to describe our generation, but we don’t even know the birth years it encompasses. (While there are no precise dates for when the millennial generation begins, demographers, typically use the early to mid 1980s as the starting point and the late 1990s as the ending point.) We’ve also been labeled as being lazy, selfish, dependent, and unproductive. Nice, huh?
Enter this blog. Mostly Millennial was formed to reframe the idea of a stereotypical millennial. I wanted to create an uplifting online community for millennial women. Together, we can work to break the negative stigma surrounding our generation.
I like to blog about a little bit of everything, so here you’ll find posts about college, career, beauty, and general life musings. But through it all, my ultimate goal is to encourage other millennial women to live creative and meaningful lives by providing tips, tricks, stories, and advice. My hope is for you to find a sanctuary in my little corner of the Internet– a place where you can feel free to enjoy and express yourself without fearing judgment from others.
My name is Kat, and I’m the face behind this millennial blog. I’m a 20-year-old, Disney-loving, stressed out, over-caffeinated college student living in Nashville. My major is marketing, but I pretty much have no idea what I want to do with my life. I’m a true creative, so I’m still working to find a passion of mine that I can turn into a career. Want to know a little more about me? Truthfully, I’m not all that interesting. But I’ll try to think of some things you might want to know!
I have a dog named Aspen. You should follow her on Instagram! It’s probably more aesthetically pleasing than my personal Insta feed. I’m the Founder & President of The Wishes Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization that brings princesses to kids in need. I hope to work at Disney World one day as a character performer, or at least one day have an annual pass! I love music, and I like to play piano and guitar in my spare time. I’m a chronic overthinker and perfectionist. I have a terrible habit of biting my nails. And I can whistle with my tongue!
Enough about me. I want to know about you! I’d love to be friends. Please contact me if you ever want to chat or just need a friend. My inbox is always open! Reach out to me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. You can also leave comments on any of my blog posts.
