We’re too afraid to admit it, but we imagine what we could’ve achieved if our young selves had the arsenal of gadgets this high-tech, low EQ generation were born into.

The Millennial has not yet decided if investing on the more premium paid filter sets is worth it. The Millennial will save that for his/her secret curated Instagram account.
