This generation is different from other generations. We have more technology and more advances than other generations in the past. I am part millennial, because I do not agree with some of the arguments about our generation. We are very bright for our generation, but I think some of our generation lets advanced technology go to their heads and are now facing health problems, like diabetes and obesity. There are many characteristics about me that show I am the same as my millennial generation, but there is some of me that is not.
I am like millennials in many ways. For example, I am lost without my phone and my other technology devices. This is bad because if we somehow lost our power or lost our technology, like a black out, our generation would be in big trouble because we are so used to technology. The older generations would know what to do because they never had the advanced technology that we have now. In an article I read the author says, “millennials’ seemingly aimless, noncommittal approach to life doesn’t necessarily signify laziness or apathy or an inability to take anything seriously” (Thompson 3). I feel that is somewhat true. Our generation is very lazy in my opinion, but not all of the generation is like that. Some are very hard workers that want a brighter future. There was another quote I found that is true; it says “we are the least overtly religious American generation in modern times” (PewResearch 1). This is a true statement in my opinion; we do not show our religion like past generations do. For example, I am Baptist and I have no time to practice my religion like normal Baptists do. The way I practice religion is by praying before I eat, I say a prayer every night before I go to bed and I talk about my religion because I am proud of my faith. However, I do not go to church very much like past generations.
If I am anything, if we are anything, we are a work in progress. We make mistakes, but we always push forward for a brighter future for other future generations to come.
