As I Meme and Breathe

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 10 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My subject is: Post a few favorite pictures and tell us why they’re your favorites.

It was submitted by:


If you look on any article about millennials, most say that generation covers birth dates starting in the mid-1980s through the mid-90s and possibly up through the early 2000s with the preceding generation, X, covering birth dates from the mid 60s through the late 70s possibly the early 80s. So what about those of us born in 1981 like me? We’re kind of left out of things finding ourselves with commonalities with both X and Millennials. Xennials. We’re not quite either one but some hybrid of the two pulling influence from both generations—killing things like millennials and bitching about them like Generation X at the same time. The culture of the times is a huge influence on who we are and who we become, how we behave. Social media, blogging, living our lives so often online has been a big part of that, and learning to use photo and gif reacts in conversations has become normal. Sometimes nothing captures your reaction better than a meme, a gif, or a photo even while older generations struggle to pronounce “meme” correctly. Shit changes, and as far as I’m concerned, this is one of the things that makes life better. So without further ado, here are some of my absolute favorites. They get used repetitively, and I laugh every damn time.  

Feel free to steal any of these any time you need a salty comeback.
