Millennials are defined as anyone born between the years 1981 and 1996. We get a lot of heat for ruining basically everything but really all we want to do is escape from the pressures of adulting by seeking comfort in the memories of our childhood.

If you’re a Millennial looking for a moment of escape, see if you remember these 13 things that contributed to Millennial childhood experience.

Ah, that’s better. As Millennials we get a bad rap, but honestly, I think we’re lucky. We were lucky to grow up when we did. We got to experience the world before and after the turn of the millennium, and the rise of social media. And no matter how stressful life gets, we’ll always have those memories to keep us going.

Which one of these memories gives you the warm fuzzies? Let us know in the comments!
