NOT ENOUGH TIME TO READ THE WHOLE STORY? NO PROBLEM. MOST IMPORTANT EXCERPTS ARE PLACED AS GIF CAPTION

That’s why we put together this definitive list of millennial terminology that every person should know. So read on, take notes, and try to use them all in a sentence. (Don’t have time? Well, then I guess #thestruggleisreal.) And if you’re a millennial, it’s your turn to bone up on the words only your elders use.
