Hello World!

Stereotypes are like a rash. They’re annoying, pointless and ugly. I have been a victim of stereotyping, but who hasn’t. I’m blonde, kinda cute (in my opinion), I believe in owning premium jeans, I heart shoes and yes, I enjoy good wine. BUT, I also live in sweatpants, think going sans makeup is cool, looooove flip flops and can shotgun a beer just as fast as any guy…well almost. Point being, labels are for soup cans. What you used to think was cool or what you used to be too cool for doesn’t matter anymore. Leave judging people to the courts, and just…be.

I don’t wear hemp clothing and I’m not a vegan, but I do think mandatory recycling is one of the coolest things since sliced bread.
I don’t know much about politics and I don’t really have the desire to read up about it, but I do believe that voting is cool and everyone who can should exercise their right to do so.

I think a lot of people go through a phase or phases in life where they are too cool for a lot of things. Too cool to hang out with their parents, they think volunteering is lame…and I probably went through that phase at one point or another too. But as you get older, you start to realize that all the things you labeled as “geeky” before, are actually quite friggin cool.

So what are you waiting for? Recycle your empty tampon box instead of throwing it in the garbage, go help an old lady carry her 26 to her car, and join me as I set out to be active when it comes to issues that affect our millennial generation…because finding something you give a shit about and wanting to make a difference, is cool.
