Hey, everybody! I first must apologize for not having any blog posts last week or from this weekend! 😦 I’m hoping to keep things going smoothly throughout here and getting back on track! 🙂
But for this week’s post, it’s time for my lovely blog series, ‘Ask A Millennial!’
In my blog series, ‘Ask a Millennial’, I discuss things that millennials like, love, hate and also things and industries that we are killing and as a fellow millennial, I give my opinion about each industry and/or thing I go over! Let’s get started!
I will be addressing three subjects today that have recently been reported about millennials in the news! That news reported was, “Are we killing potatoes, mayonnaise, and most recently, divorce lawyers?”
Well, let’s go down the list and I’ll tell you what this millennial thinks! 😀
According to this article (and many more, I’m sure 🙂 ), we are killing potatoes! The articles
complains reports that we do not like how long it takes to prepare potatoes and that we disregard and don not buy them because they are unhealthy. The article also says that we eat more “healthy carbohydrates” in general.
Well… As a millennial, I don’t really care about how long it takes to prepare potatoes, but I do think alot of potatos are nothing but little STARCH BOMBS. 😡 These starch bombs are nothing but empty carbs that make a person fat, from my experience with them atleast (My body was the guinnea pig. 😥 ). Remember the old, “meat and potato diet” diet? Well, we millennials see through that unhealthy diet and we have decided, and as of I, that potatos are on the DO NOT CONSUME and DO NOT BUY from the grocery store list. As you can see, I am apart of the millennial club that thinks most potatoes are generally unhealthy to consume all of the time and if they are offered to me at dinner (sorry family 😦 ), I usually don’t have seconds of them you could say. And what do you know, the article happens to be correct about this millennial! 😀
The ONLY potatoes that I allow myself to buy are sweet potatoes and yams. Those are “good” potatos because they actually are healthy for a person to eat in moderation each day, even though they are a carbohydrate. And the article is also correct saying that I forgo potatos and buy healthier carbs. 🙂 The only carby things I buy are organic whole wheat bread (I buy organic to be sure my bread is pretty clean of unhealthy additives and chemicals; the ONLY grocery store item I do not cheap out on), sweet potatoes, yams, Quest Energy Bars, Premiere Protien energy drinks, and unsalted Kirkland Nut Bars from Costco. That’s it ya’ll : / And to be honest, I do buy candy sometimes to snack on. C: But THAT’S IT. > _<
As you can see, not really a lot of unhealthy carbs going on there in my list of foods that I buy. 🙂 Plus, all of my food and drinks I buy, carby stuff or not, I always make sure are low sugar and not high in sugar, salt and fat. I have been overweight for my height before in life before my diet/eating lifestyle change and I plan on not going back there again anytime soon and FOREVER. So yo ho ho ho ho, a healthy eating lifestyle for me! ~~~ 😀
Now according to this article, millennials are also killing mayonnaise! Oh, the inhumanity of it all… > ___> Also, one of my readers also asked me this very same question a long time ago, so I will finally be addressing it today, haha. ^ _^;
Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I bought mayonnaise besides once this year when I bought some light mayonnaise for my avocado toast to try putting into my mashed avocado spread, but that is it. *shrug emoji* Until that moment, I don’t think I have ever bought mayonnaise for myself except for maybe once, twice, or three times throughout my entire 20’s probably. LOCMom always buys and keeps a jar of mayonnaise on hand anyway, so I never really took the initiative to buy it ever… Plus, as the article says, I don’t think mayonaise is very healthy to eat in general even though I think it is delicious. 😀 I mean, I love you Mayonnaise, but let’s just stay friends, okay? Dx
Not much to say about Mayonnaise but just that this millennial doesn’t eat it regularly, haha. ;D
And last but not least, according to this article, us millennials are putting divorce lawyers out of business now! Boo hoo? : / Apparently, us millennials are marrying later and are being incredibly picky on who we marry and if we do get married, we are staying married. What is so wrong with this you ask? Well… nothing really, to be honest with all of you. : | So everyone break out your small violins and start playing them for all of the divorce lawyers we millennials are putting out work. 9 _9
To be honest with you, I have thought of marriage and honestly, I don’t think marraige will be happening in my life anytime soon if ever (sorry again family 😦 ). I am afraid I have read one too many stories about how significant others can turn out to be jerks, turn into jerks, are complete clutter bugs, hide their debt from you sometimes before getting married, and me being on SSI, people may see me as a perfect abuse target to take advantage of because of my very low income making me trapped in a relationship and making me dependent on my spouse’s income completely. It’s just not going to work out in the end, I’m afraid. So for now, I have deemed a life of singlehood for me to be perfect for me at the moment and honestly, I am loving it! I don’t have to worry about pleasing another person romantically and it’s all about me! To be honest, I would marry myself if I could. 😉
But infinite cheers to all of my millennial cohorts who have found that wonderful man or woman who completes them and three cheers and beyond for all of them staying together because they actually love each other, dang it! > _< 😀 The Divorce Lawyers are still lawyers, so they will just have to find another line of lawyering work to do. Maybe helping my fellow millennials who have a bunch of college debt get out of their debt maybe and taking on those god awful student loan loan shark companies that always pick on millennials these days for MOAR AND MOAR money after they leave college after graduating? That would be nice. 🙂
So yes, all of these things that I have gave my opinion on are pretty irrelevant to me you could say, haha. 😛 Besides mayonnaise, I will be pretty happy to see most of these things go in the future. 🙂 As they say, or at least I say, “ADAPT OR DIE.” 😀 😀 😀
What do you think about these dying things? Do you think they are still relevent today?
