I'm a 2008 Grad of the University of Illinois, where I majored in English. Now, unlike most of my Millennial peers, I am married and mommy to the freaking cutest kid you've *ever* seen. I am not technically employed (unless you count cleaning my mom's house for $90 a month), but I'm very connected with (i.e. read a ton of blogs & articles) and interested in the consuming, voting and lifestyle trends of my generation, especially as more of us become spouses/partners and parents.
