Ah summer sixteen, the perfect time to document every single thing you're doing to make your peers jealous and aware of your fabulous life (because isn't that what social media really is?). The issue with us being a generation that does show what we're doing all the time can be summed up in one word: basic. Now the word basic has gotten a pretty bad rap lately. Whether you're being basic with Starbucks or jamming out to your basic top 40 playlist, it seems you'll get someone judging you for being too mainstream.
You know what though? We're all a little basic, example A? How any landscape picture is automatically a #view. Or how about how anytime you run through the six, it's automatically ft. your woes. But what's wrong with that? Ya I like my lattes grande and my pop tinged with some auto tuned T-Pain, and I'm not ashamed of that. So whether or not you've used these captions, which to be honest we all have, we're all a little basic at heart. Too strung on compliments, overdosed on confidence; the basic Toronto game is still owning it.

Because when you buy Pinot Grigio it almost guarantees an eggs benny the next morning.
7. The ground was just SO hilarious #lovethesquad #nonewfriends #bill ?
Always include a hashtag with an inside joke (remember bill! LOL) to let your other friends know how much fun you had!!
8. Chilling with my beaches???#sugarbeach
Your not actually saying bitches, but it's the double entendre that makes it super funny and intellectual.

We're all a little touristy sometimes, whether it's the ROM, CN tower, Ripley's Aquarium- we all do it.
13. Found Drake #CNtower #6ix
We can no longer associate our iconic tower without Champagne Papi.
14. Too late now to say SORRY? ?#caffeine #americano
These infamous cups are a staple on every basic Instagram feed, really gives it that "I venture outside of Starbucks" aesthetic.
