Well this first day might be a bit pants I’m afraid, as I feel my blog’s name is a bit self-explanatory?
Because I am a problematic millennial?
I first got the idea because I was so sick of seeing news articles about these ‘whining, entitled, too easy offended millennials’.
If you ask me, we’ve got it tough. But I would say wouldn’t I? I’m one of them after all.
I’m not saying the generations before us didn’t have it tough, of course they did. Nor am I denying how hard they’ve worked. They survived world wars after all. And raised us whining millennials!
But we’ve paying the highest tuition fees on record. We’ll be working for longer and longer than the generations before us, with seemingly little chance of a pension (and I doubt the winter fuel allowance will still be up for grabs when it’s my turn to claim it). The job market is more competitive than ever – our expensive degrees aren’t even enough to make us stand out anymore. And buying a house? Don’t tease me.
Plus, as much as I might enjoy social media, I do sorta wish I could’ve done my teen years without the constant scrutiny.
I just don’t see why the term ‘millennial’ is bounded about in the media like an insult.
So that’s day 1 of my 30 day blogging challenge and I’ve already managed to rant! Anyway, have a great weekend guys.
