11 Things Millennials Did for the Last Time

Where are all my Millennials at? Gen Y (as in “Why were we dealt this crappy hand?”) is in the house.

Only true Millennials can appreciate these 11 things Millennials did, that we will never do again. In some cases, for the better, in others…well, let’s just say kids today can’t appreciate how much simpler things were back in the day.

1. Take the packaging off of a brand new CD:

Such a satisfying feeling. That plastic was slippery.

A little part of me just died inside.

True dat.

Now I’m feeling all the feels.

You whipper snappers may have Disney+ but I had an entire collection of bootleg VHS tapes. Pus Myspace wasn’t nearly as addictive as social media is today, and you certainly didn’t want your parents getting one. Ah, oh well. At least we have the memories.

My fellow Millennials, which one of these do you relate to most?
