I’m gaining my own life experience that some day, a younger generation will ask me about. Chances are, a Millennial has a different stance on gay marriage, Title IX or animal testing than a Baby Boomer. Stereotypes seem to follow Millennials wherever they go.
I wasn’t alive when JFK was shot and I was too naïve to understand why 9/11 was significant at the time, but I was watching when Obama was elected both times and I lived in Boston during the Boston Marathon Bombings, so you know what? The same goes for the Baby Boomers, Gen X and Gen Z.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus was floated as a candidate for the position, but the Wall Street Journal reported that he took himself out of the running.
Trump himself had said on Friday that Kellogg was 'very much in play.' So were 'three others,' the president said but did not name.
What’s more, the generations experience things differently – everything from diversity to salary to home life. And, there are just as many Gen X-ers who are super tech-savvy. I’ve noticed they’re either spoken about in one of those two terms: extremely positively, or extremely negatively.
I have a term for yuppies in the Gen Y age group -- I call them Gen Y Protagonists & Special Yuppies, or GYPSYs.
A GYPSY is a unique brand of yuppie, one who thinks they are the main character of a very special story.
According to my vague timeline, Millennials were born any time between the early 1980s to the early 2000s. As you can tell, that’s a broad age range; there are obvious differences between 13-year-olds and 33-year-olds.
Let’s start by breaking the generations down so we know where Millennials fit in: Timeline: Baby Boomers: born mid 1940s-mid 1960s Generation X: born early 1960s-early 1980s Generation Y (The Millennial Generation): born early 1980s-early 2000s Generation Z: born early 2000s-present There are conflicting opinions on the exact dates of when one generation ends and another begins. But for the purposes of this article, I’m separating the generations into roughly 20-year chunks, because it minimizes overlap. Today, Millennials are people anywhere from 13 to 33, give or take a few months.
