Generation Y

Generation Y has problems.

Generation Y cannot find a job. Generation Y cannot break in. Generation Y has discovered that cash is the key to every door. Generation Y feels pressured to “make it” but cannot endure the rat race. Generation Y is starting to realize that it shouldn’t try to “make it”. Generation Y has seen the man behind the curtain. Generation Y knows that it has been brainwashed by advertising and mass culture. Generation Y has been co-opted anyway. Generation Y cannot break out.

Generation Y feels empty.

Generation Y has been taught what to think but not how to think. Generation Y has been told to memorize answers but not to ask questions. Generation Y has not been told how to live. Generation Y is trying to learn. Generation Y wants something new but can’t find it. Generation Y rejects old methods but can’t escape them. Generation Y is tired of consumerism but continues to consume. Generation Y has seen the nihilism at the end of modernism.

Generation Y feels empty.

Generation Y feels like no one has its back. Generation Y has no role models. Generation Y does not know what stability looks like. Generation Y acts out. Generation Y has addictions that it cannot control. Generation Y wants to feel secure. Generation Y has been depressed before. Generation Y has had breakdowns before. Generation Y takes medications that do not solve its problems. Generation Y is lonely but cannot connect. Generation Y is a shaken soda bottle. Generation Y needs a friend.

    This is about 100% accurate give-or-take. Though it doesn’t make me feel better that it’s all due to the year I was born...
