I know I’m only 34, but sometimes I feel a lot older than that. It seems like teenagers today are entirely different animals to what teenagers were like when I was that age, which was only 16 years ago. I mean, that’s the last year of Clinton’s administration. By Clinton I mean Bill, since, you know, we’ll have to differentiate between the two. I don’t know how much social media is the culprit for this, but I’d have to imagine it’s rather high. We didn’t have YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Tinder, Instagram, Snapchat, or even MySpace (remember that??) when I was in high school. There were no smartphones. No one I knew even owned a cell phone of their own. I didn’t even have my own computer until I started my sophomore year of college. I feel like teenagers/young adults nowadays take a lot of stuff for granted, on top of being insufferably smug about many other things. You know the expression, “Youth is wasted on the young”? Well, I think there’s some truth to that.
Also, can someone please explain to me what “on fleek” means? I mentioned it in my post yesterday, and I’ve talked about the expression in earlier posts, but I’ll be damned if after all this time I’ve managed to figure out what the hell it means, particularly in relation to one’s eyebrows. I assume it’s a positive statement, meant to denote something attractive, but who decided to come up with a whole new expression just for eyebrows? That’s such a random, inane thing.
