I’m currently writing a book about millennials for a publisher who thinks I know things (thanks guys).
It’s strange and fun but also sometimes worrisome to speak on behalf of all of us.
We are an eclectic bunch; raised on various spectrums of Nickelodeon and Capri Suns and consistently fed two conflicting messages: You Are The Future and You Kind Of Suck.
My friend Fran sent me this article this morning by Matt Bors which made me laugh because of course. Of course we are no different than our forefathers and foresisters who were shaking it up and being annoying and not listening to their parents.
Of course there are bad eggs, but there are also good eggs who care about things and don’t want us all to die from global warming and religious constipation.
We may be self absorbed, but we’re also smart–which should count for something.
I’m curious what you think, millennials and non millennials alike. I want to know if you’ll admit this generation is lazy (we are) but also acknowledge that we are changing the world. I want to know if you think we are capable of more than creating Instragrams with trendy fonts and writing blog posts about chick flicks.
I want to know who (or what) you think we are. What defines this generation? Are we doing anything right?
