It was summer of 2013 and the internet was ripe with conversation on the twittersphere about “something” jokingly being referred to as “anything” on trendy online memes. Fast forward to 2019 and we’re finally stepping out of our cocoon into these current days, but no one saw it coming.
Growing pains are expected with any shift in thought, but now we know anything could be everything if something was one thing, but that isn’t always the case. One thing, however, isn’t just something, it’s what we grew up with in the 90’s and early 2000’s as both Millennials and Gen Z’ers. It was old fashioned stone culture, and that’s just “how it was in the old days.”
So maybe next time you think to call a thing “something”, remember that it could be anything, and we all play a role in making it exactly that.
