How "Stranger Things" Tapped Perfectly Into The Millennial Market
After premiering this summer, the Netflix Original series "Stranger Things" rose to the top of the charts immediately.

I was never big on reading. Maybe it's because I am a millennial but if you were to ask me a few months ago, I would've chose an hour of Netflix or Instagram browsing people's highlight reels of their perfect lives rather than pick up a book. That wasn't until I found the self help aisle. Yes, I said it- self-help, don't judge me. That aisle definitely gets a bad rap. But aren't we all just trying to be the best versions of ourselves?

There is much to explore.

Meanwhile, I’m cranking up the AC in my parent's house, throwing on another pair of LuLuLemon shorts, getting married to pizza and pretending I’m living in fall weather (Houston still thinks it's summer).
