    Millennial columnMillecular: More isn't always more

    Having one quality experience is better than 10 shitty ones
    Maybe you noticed and maybe you didn't, but I have been a bit absent from this "Millecular" column. Not because I don't want to be writing for my beloved Boulder community, but mainly because big meals have taken over on my plate this past month. Full Story
    Millecular: Chasing the dream
    I am sad to say, after five years residing in Boulder, I now live in Ketchum, Idaho. I was sad to leave. In fact, I was sad to see a part of my life officially get written into my personal history books. Boulder was my first home away from home. It was my college life, some of my love life and a whole lot of my personal growth.  Full Story

    Know your columnist: Griffin, 'Millecular'
    Gavin Griffin pens the column "Millecular" for the Colorado Daily every Thursday. His comedic rants and millennial insight makes us all want to hug a millennial. Full Story

    Campus Life: Dear Millennial Buffs
    Dear Millennial Buffs, Spring semester is the toughest grind. You only get one break and it seems like forever for summer or graduation to come. And yes, some of you are only in your second semester at CU and many are in your last. That's a weird feeling on both ends - and for all those floating in the middle.  Full Story

    Outdoor Life: CU Spring break -- five spots for a Colorado-cation
    Although spring break is the only recess students get from a rough spring semester, it's also typically a weeklong combo of hooch, partying, bad mistakes and boodles of money. Full Story

    Millecular: The affluenza virus
    You probably heard about that "affluenza" teen who was charged with killing four people in a drunken driving wreck and then fled to Mexico with his mom. Full Story

    Millecular: Social resolutions
    Every generation says, "I want a chance to change the world." This is Gen Y's chance, and has been for a little while, but now is the time to act on it. Make your social resolution an action towards creating positivity.  Full Story

    Millecular: Supposed misfits
    For every one positive article I read about Gen Y, I read two negative ones. And it's seemingly a barrage of false identifications: lazy, coddled, spoiled, a lack of work ethic - the list goes on. However, the biggest negative word detailing our generation that I repeatedly come across is "entitled."  Full Story

    Millecular: Waging weak wars on social media
    As a white male in society, I've learned over time (as well as been academically taught) that anything I say or that any opinion I have has the potential to be offensive. Full Story

    Millecular: Boulder and millennials have aligning natures
    Welcome back to Boulder after a nice holiday filled with family, friends, food - and hopefully wine. Christmastime is now no further than a stone's throw away. For me, after an extended leave, there is no better town to make a return than this growing city. Full Story

    Millecular: Rise up, millennials
    You know, I am getting pretty irritated by the fact that some people constantly connect Gen Y with entitlement. Some even call us, "The Entitlement Generation." Like, we are ungrateful, self-absorbed nitwits that roam around demanding things without saying thank you. Full Story

    Millecular: Let's talk like old people
    I love nothing more than sitting in a room full of my closest friends, and not talking. It's so awesome, right? We all experience it. And, living in the Rockies, I don't think it's the weed hindering our conversations. We are all well-versed in functioning high. It's the technology grind that is killing our ability to talk.  Full Story

    Millecular: Paper or plastic, millennials?
    BI Intelligence recently surveyed 1,500 millennials and found that, when it comes to spending, 40 percent are ready to get rid of cash altogether. Full Story

    Millecular: Embrace your kid-ult
    I confess: I am on the East Coast for a short time completing contract work for a client based in New York City and have been staying at my parent's home in the meantime. Full Story

    Millecular: Watch your wallet
    Post-college, the battle of me versus my wallet is insane. The process of becoming a financially responsible adult, well, isn't like anything anyone ever told me it would be like. Full Story

    Millecular: Quality isn't cheap
    It seems that expectations in the millennial generation run high: We all think we should have the golden ticket. Full Story

    Millecular: Understanding consumer profiles after Facebook hoax
    If you haven't been on Facebook this week, let me catch you up: There has been a privacy hoax making its way through status updates. Full Story

    Millecular: Experience vs. experiences
    I worked in a top-tier marketing agency. I was the youngest, least-experienced member of the team. To add, I was a trained journalist employed by a very different industry. Full Story

    Millecular: Sharing a generational identity crisis
    I've been on the east coast traveling. Currently, I am sitting on a beach in Sea Isle, N.J. My skin is red and my ears are burnt, but hell, who doesn't love soft sand, amazing pizza, cheap beer, salty hair and eastern attitudes? OK, I may be bragging a bit, especially if you're in class, but don't be too jealous — I am in the "armpit of the country" and close to MTV's "Jersey Shore" scene (not my favorite crowd). I've seen many florescent tank tops with big, bold letters reading, "I like to party," on dudes the size of boats walking around. Full Story

    Millecular: 'Fleek' too shall pass
    Big companies are spending bigger dollars to learn about the millennial generation - and their curiosity comes with where we spend our money. It's no wonder, we hold an estimated $1 trillion worth of the U.S. consumer spending power. Sometimes finding these answers has come from obscure research and development processes.  Full Story

    Second Story Garage: Gasoline Lollipops

    The Boulder alt-country band gives its EPs names such as Death and Resurrection, and its songs bear the mark of hard truths and sin. But the punk energy behind the playing, and the sense that it's all in good fun, make it OK to dance to a song like "Death." Full Story
