When I was 15 years old, I saw a post on Tumblr that said something along the lines of, “Why don’t gyms lock their TVs so they can only play the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show over and over? That would really inspire people to start pushing themselves harder.”

I expected the world to look different when I woke up last Wednesday. I don’t know exactly what I expected it to look like; perhaps I thought I would see catchy quotes lighting up the sky in bold pink font, proclaiming that the future is female and therefore that I am the future. Maybe I expected the sun to shine a little differently, to reflect on the crimson maple trees around campus so the leaves would glow like a thousand little stars and light my path as I walked down State Street to my economics lecture.

I grew up with full confidence that I am capable of achieving anything I put my mind to. I have my parents to thank for that mindset. As a little girl, when I came stumbling out of my bedroom in my footie pajamas and curly bedhead, whining, “I can’t sleep,” my dad would invariably answer, “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” (A Henry Ford quote, by the way.)

It seems that all people can talk about lately are those pesky millennials and their consumer habits, whether it means buying avocado toast or Kylie Jenner lipsticks. What we often seem to forget, however, is that the millennial generation is now comprised of adults and Generation Z is no longer comprised of babies.

In 2017, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank said  President Donald Trump’s “pro-business” policies are “a real asset” to the country, and Under Armour stock fell 40 percent.

For a good portion of my early adolescence, my primary goal was to be just like Miley in the Disney Channel show “Hannah Montana.” In the show, Miley is an awkward, unpopular high school student who has a huge secret: She’s actually international pop superstar Hannah Montana. Somehow, nobody at her school knows her secret identity because when she performs as Hannah, she wears a blonde wig. In fifth grade, I had my pop star alter ego all figured out. I had given her a name (Pinkberry … yep, like the frozen yogurt place) and sketched a wig in my journal. I was ready for fame.

You know that episode of “Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse” where Malibu has a glitter shortage and all hell breaks loose because Barbie is supposed to attend a Hollywood premiere that night and she doesn’t want her fans to see her without any glitter? I feel like that’s a pretty accurate depiction of how my summer’s gone so far.

I’m a huge fan of the Bill of Rights. My friends can corroborate that, because if anyone has been drinking, I don’t let them leave the house until I’m sure they understand that they have a Fourth Amendment right not to take a breathalyzer test if accused of being a minor in possession and a Fifth Amendment right not to talk to the police.

It’s 7:45 a.m. We’re walking down East Liberty Street. I have two rakes in my hand, and Shannon, my roommate, has a drawstring bag on her back that holds a spade, a fork, a hoe and a pair of shears. We’re excited, if not a little bit sheepish, about the adventure that lies ahead of us. I learned early on in my time at the University of Michigan that “wasting time,” which is broadly defined as “doing something that you aren’t going to put on your resume,” is a criminal offense, and, up until now, I’ve been utterly opposed to breaking the law. But not today.

The Lunch Room didn’t start with a business plan or a value proposition. Instead, it started with two neighbors cooking food together in their kitchens. After eight years, three brick-and-mortar locations and success beyond what anyone could have predicted, its origin story isn’t hard to believe. Step inside any of The Lunch Room’s three locations and you’ll instantly feel like you’re at home having a meal with your family.
