This generation is a special one. We might have a lot of haters but they will never be able to bring the Generation Y down. We are the stars of YouTube, the world-renouned photographers of Instagram, and the supermodels of Snapchat. So everyone else should follow us on Twitter because we are #kindofabigdeal and #wecantstop. To catch you up, here’s who we are and how we’ve made it this far…we’re talking hashtags.

#sorrynotsorry

Where it all began. This catchy little phrase became the perfect description for when you have maybe crossed a risky boundary but you just don’t feel bad about it. As the White Chicks movie perfectly describes, “You were thinking it! Yeah, but you said it!” This is hashtag boasts the truth with a little bit of spice.

#fml / #wtf

When you’re cussing but not actually because abbreviations “don’t count”. You know you love it, we all do. Plus, there is nothing more satisfying than being way too dramatic about some semi-rough situation.

#yolo / #rage / #turnup / #turndownforwhat / #turnt 

Tongue out, Miley Cyrus style. You know what I’m talking about. These hashtags are absolutely necessary when you are living the dream with your friends in that sketchy house party that you found through a roommate’s older brother.

#winning / #swag

The competition stage. You had a great mid-day victory? You better tell the world. And if you’re feeling good about those sick glasses…show them off, duh. A little bit of swag never hurt anyone. You keep doing you.

#foodporn

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and d*** right, it’s better than yours. This hashtag is absolutely essential when you’ve just had the best/prettiest/amazeballs meal of your life…literally.

#getswoll #gains #riseandgrind

Sweet kicks, color coordinated attire, bumping playlist in the headphones, conveniently fashionable headband (optional), sweat beads dripping, adrenaline pumping, heart racing, instagram posted…you know what it is. We out here grinding.

#hashtag / #nofilter

Alright cool kids. You think you’re better just because you “don’t care” about the obsessive art of hashtagging? And let’s be real for like two seconds, you know you AT LEAST pressed auto-enhance on that gorgeous so-called “no filter” pic…and now there is a trust issue between us. So you better check yourself before you wreck yourself when it comes to walking that no-filter line of yours.

#mcm / #transformationtuesday / #wcw / #tbt 

These classic hashtags provide the perfect basis for weekly updates. When you want to post but don’t have anything fabulous that you are doing right at the moment, don’t even fret because you can always default back to the OG posts. Long live the traditionals.

#letmetakeaselfie / #selfie

Can everyone please stop what you are doing immediately and give a huge thank you to the genius creation of the pop hit “Selfie” for bringing this once looked down upon hashtag to a newfound glorification. The Chainsmokers have accomplished what no one has ever dreamed of. This is ultimate success people.

#someridiculouslylonghashtagthatisjustwaytooobnoxious

Woah there. My eyes just had to re-read that about a thousand times. And I am still not sure that I know what you’re talking about so I gave up and scrolled passed. Please reduce the amount of brain power required to view your post, please and thank you.

#way #too #many #hashtags #no #one #cares

I can’t. I literally cannot. This is too much. Is every single one of those a hundred percent necessary, like really? And even though I am annoyed…I probably read every single one. So you got me, but it’s whatever I don’t even care. Kinda.

#blessed 

You know you love it. Even if you hate it, you love it. Even if you don’t have an opinion toward it, yep, you love it. Don’t even lie. Jump on the blessed train, you won’t regret it…and if so, refer back to yolo.

Before anyone else? Are you sure…before your mom? Before your grandma? Before Beyonce? BEFORE YOUR PUG? I’m just not too sure about that…again, trust issues in the air.

These hashtags mark where we have been and what we have socially conquered, but now we must trend the hashtags of our future. Between our outstanding creativity and our stellar photographic skills, Generation Y will continue making history, one hashtag at a time. It is up to us… like by like, favorite by favorite, RETWEET BY RETWEET to prove to the world the power of our generation. #gobigorgohome
