There's a lot of dispute about who is part of the millennial generation. Everyone tends to think it only encompasses '90s kids, but many sources believe it also includes kids born throughout the '80s. What's that mean? It means that there are a lot of old millennials out there. How do you know if you are one? Besides feeling old and being a millennial, you can see if any of these signs ring true for you.
You might have been the first person in your group to get one, even. It was either a “high-tech” flip phone or a Nokia brick – but nothing beats that Snake game.
By which I mean, you watched the actual trial when it happened, not the fabulous dramatization starring Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding, Jr.
Excuse me. AOL was the ONLY thing. AOL was the best thing. Long live AOL.
Well. I was going to marry Billie Joe Armstrong, but you get the idea.
Among others, of course, but these were the best books. You probably started your own version of the BSC, too.
“Marilyn Manson is the embodiment of evil!” – your mom, probably.
I didn't even know how AOL profiles worked until my 30th creeper message.
Only for someone to pick up the phone right in the middle of it, usually. That made me so mad.
Hands up if you had a boss collection of Winamp skins, by the way. I had all the Silverchair skins because Daniel Johns was bae.
And both MTV and VH1 still played videos during the day! You didn't have to wait until the middle of the night!
It skipped all the time, but you didn't have to participate in sing-alongs or vacation fights.
You loved it without reservation. You babied it. It made you feel so cool.
Not to mention every other Nintendo game, ever. If Mario starred in it, you beat it.
No. You kept a precursor to today's blogs. You had a LiveJournal, didn't you?
Even though you were too young to attend a Nirvana concert. You were still devastated.
First came the mix tapes, then came the mix CDs … which were just bitches to get right.
Hell, you thought someone was cool if they brought in a PDA. (I had a PDA.)
Feel old yet? Whatever, we're the backbone of the millennial generation. We rule.
