Not much makes sense in life, and not much seems fair, but my new favorite Tumblr, Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings, helps validate life's little insecurities by a) poking fun of them and taking away their power and b) capturing them accurately enough to reassure millennial bundles of anxiety that we’re not alone in our neurosis.
