5 Millennial Articles to Read this Week- Round Up #3
It’s Monday. The worst day of the week (unless if you like your job, in which case, you’re crazy 🙂 ). We wanted to spread some more cheer and help brighten your Monday, so we kicked off this Monday Round-Up two weeks ago. There are so many millennials out there crushing it, and we wanted to bring you the best podcast and posts we stumbled upon.
This week, Erik is sharing his favorite posts from the week! Read through these posts, check out these podcasts, and follow these incredible millennials!
1.) If I Would Be Dead in 10 Years – A Thought Experiment, by Ms ZiYou
We only have one life and our time on this Earth is not guaranteed. I love this post because it gets at just that: what would you do differently if you knew your time on this Earth was 50 years but only 10 years? Would you keep working in the same job? Would you travel? What would you do?!?
Great post Ms ZiYou!
2.) 10 Things We Love About Living Tiny, by Life for the Better
I love challenging my more traditional thoughts, and living tiny is something I’m absolutely fascinated by. Tim and L have been living in a tiny house for a little less than a year now, and provide us with some great takeaways from their experience.
My favorite: not having more stuff than you need is a good thing!
3.) Were My Student Loans Worth It? My Thoughts 7 Years Out, by Millennial Boss
College is super expensive these days, and many people have to take out student loans to attend. While J from Millennial Boss has now become debt free, she looks back at her degree and wonders if it was even worth it.
If I were to go back to 18, I’m not sure I would have gone to college, but at the same time, I definitely wouldn’t give back the experiences I had because of my education. Definitely some interesting things to think about from this post!
4.) 5 Reasons My Parents Escaped The Lower Class (and no, it’s not hard work), by The Give and Get
Thinking smarter and working harder is lazy advice to people in the lower class, and not helpful. The Give and Get’s article on how her parents escaped the lower class is fantastic because it shows some concrete examples of how they rose up and become more middle class.
I’m a believer in being the owner of your life, and this post is a great example of how others have taken ownership and achieved great success with their actions.
