This Jezebel article/roundup is such anti-millennial catnip. (I’m a millennial, technically, fyi?)
Lines like “It’s my weakest point. I’ve literally only been alive 23 years” and “I am going to call my dad whom I barely speak to and ask to borrow it to pay you [a vendor]” are such deliciously entitled tears to lap.
On the one hand, running a small business is terrifying and awful and almost always fails. You spend most of your time robbing Peter to pay Paul while lying to Mary about the whole thing and hoping she doesn’t notice you’ve also robbed her because you owe Paul a lot of fucking money somehow.
On the other hand, your whole brand is about how you’re alternative and young and savvy, so…
Running a business at any age is brutal, I guess. Having a cash stream that you can reluctantly hit up (“WHOM I BARELY SPEAK TO”, did you HEAR ME?) is a luxury I wish I had. Maybe I could start a business if I had one? That would be bae af.
Unrelated: just screen grabbing text and putting in as images seems to work pretty well. Maybe I’ll turn my tumblr into a snapchat story someday.
