The Meh List

The Meh List #7, Twenties Collective Edition


Fans of The New York Times will get the reference, but for those of you unacquainted with this gem of their ‘one-page magazine’ (within the actual NY Times magazine that comes out every Sunday), let me introduce you. In their own words, it’s a list of things that are “not hot, not not, just meh.” Past examples include: the Maroon 5 guy, Grammy nominations, and pumpkin ale. For the simple fact of my own enjoyment, I thought I’d start crafting my own once a week, in a similar spirit as Dear Diary. So without further ado, which is in itself a “meh” statement…

3. Emma Roberts

4. Getting engaged at Coachella

5. “Work hard, play hard”

6. Chelsea Handler
