20 somethings

Let's be real here, there are a lot of annoying things that happen in Ottawa. However, as millennials, we often get offended over nothing and we have a lot of our own opinions. We don't think others are wrong necessarily, but we're always right.

Your 20s are supposed to be the best time of your life. You finally finish up school, get a job, and settle down. Jk, it definitely doesn't happen that easily.
