Want to know how to get over that? How to get over the "I could never try that?" Have a staring contest with fear. Promise yourself whoever blinks first is the loser.

All Millennials Want for Christmas Won't Fit in Santa's Bag

Unwritten | Posted 02.15.2015 | College

I no longer want a $500 leather jacket that will probably get beer spilled all over it at a party. My ideal Christmas list simply consists of one intangible item that certainly cannot fit in Santa's bag: future employment.

I don't expect very much from Santa Claus these days. I mean, he's been a disappointment over the years. My desires are few--power, money, and fame, that sort of thing--but he's yet to satisfy any of them. So I tried downgrading my requests to world peace and the end of international poverty. But that didn't work either. He still didn't deliver. This year I tried to be more realistic. I had just a few simple requests. It's been a difficult year so Santa, this would have been a good time to give me at least something that I wanted. But no! It's Christmas Day and I got up early to check under the tree, and nothing.

This is a rather confusing time in my life; in fact, it's almost like being a teenager all over again (minus the wonderfully un-saggy skin and quick metabolism). My hormones are shifting. My body is changing. I'm feeling new sensations -- both mentally and physically -- and everything seems to be fluctuating.
