Are You An Old Millennial?
You're either too young to be a millennial or too old to be a millennial.
You're still so young and beautiful. You have so much life left to live. You're a millennial but you're not old and jaded yet.
You're an old millennial. You get all the grief for being a "millennial" even though you're a regular adult member of society. You're so wise.
