The Reply (www.the-reply.com) is a Canadian lifestyle magazine. We strive to provide meaningful and lasting commentary on social issues faced by Millennials and Gen-Y. <br> <br> The world “millennial” has been so stereotyped in the media, most of us cringe at the label. But at The Reply, we believe it should be worn with pride. After all, millennials are doing amazing things. We’re changing the way people work, the way people live; we’re changing the way people look at the world. <br> <br> We want to change the way the world sees millennials, and the way we look inward at ourselves. <br> <br> We’re featuring real stories about millennials who are overcoming challenges in their careers, relationships and personal lives. Whether you’re looking for advice on paying off student loans, looking to follow your passion in your career or even searching for tips for first dates, we are your go-to resource.

Now that I was celebrating my 30th, I felt like everyone in my life was suddenly interested in how my career was going (or not going), whether or not I have someone special in my life, and about other massive life-pursuits like home buying, or even financial freedom.
