I recently re-watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. In case you’ve been living under a rock, A Year in the Life is the revival of the original WB show. It follows the lives of Rory and Lorelai 10 years after we last saw them at the end of season seven…when Rory had just graduated from Yale.

Someone recently asked me what I plan to do once my student loans are paid off. I said something vague about buying a house, and the conversation made me realize that I don’t spend that much time thinking about what comes next. When our student loans are gone, then what?
There are many negative stereotypes about millennials. We’re often classified as lazy, entitled, and immature. I don’t agree with these stereotypes. Of course, there are a few millennials out there who fit these stereotypes, but there are more who don’t.
