Too bad I can't afford a house to put them in.
No they aren't.... Because baby-boomers ruined the economy and blah blah blah
Am I the only one who doesn't get all this millennial stuff? I'm probably considered a millennial (born in 97) but have a great career ahead of me (I'm an electrical apprentice), over 20k saved up (I know how to manage my money thanks to my pops), no debt (college is a trap, get into a trade instead my friends), considering buying a house and renting it (so other people can pay it for me). So I don't get all this millennial cr@p.
@Garfielf , I'm with you. The term millennial is just a buzz word they use to make click bait. "How is this our fault" and "What have they done now" are the type of thing that gets people to click on the article even though they know it's a trick.
@Garfielf , I don't get why everyone says college is a trap. Getting a degree is a good thing. College isn't for everyone, this is true, but it isn't a trap
@Garfielf , It's just the idiots who blame society for their shortcomings when they live in a country with great income mobility.(Of course not everyone is given the same opportunity due to outside externalities, but the majority have the ability and the freedom to do so.)
@18bluecat, Depends on what your studying, like me you don't need a stupid degree to get a good job, now if you want to be a doctor that's a different story, but trade school could serve just about most people well.
@Garfielf , I was born in 84 and they call me a millennial, it's like anyone from 5-40 is a millennial
@CrazyRightWinger, Millenial seems to refer to mid to late high school(as of right now) all the way up to like people in their early to mid 30s. Those below high school right now are being called Gen Z but that's up for debate right now cause Gen Z hasn't developed enough for people to find a cut off point between Millennial and Z
@CrazyRightWinger, I looked it up, and it is not consistent what years are counted to be a "millenial" but generally speaking '81-'97 seems to be the kind of agreed years. So I, being born in '91, am a millenial.
@TheRatMan, it's just strange to think someone in high school would be in the same generation as me, who has a family and an established career.
@Garfielf , yes and no. I'm with you 100% on the budgeting and using the term "millenials" but I slightly disagree with your college and housing points. College is subjective. Don't get a liberal arts degree and it may be worth something. I'm going for an IT degree right now. Housing greatly depends on the area. The housing market around me is horrendous. I live in a very small town, and your average 2 bedroom 1 bath house is around 120k. On the other hand, I rent an apartment for 510/month and don't have to pay utilities, do lawn care, or worry about fixing/replacing broken appliances
@CrazyRightWinger, 1984 BABY!
@Garfielf , you are the minority they dont notice. Me and my hubby are the same. Born in '90-'91, we have a decent savings, we respect people, we HATE drama, we are both in trades, im still paying off my student loan but its minuscule compared to my sister-in-laws and many other people i know. And while we are currently renting, we are planning on buying in 4 years.
And i prefer guacamole to avocado toast lol
@18bluecat, college isn't a trap, but the student loan system can be challenging to navigate.
@Garfielf , I think the tricky part is that you used to be able to leave general education behind and still become successful bumbling around and figuring out what to do with your life over a period of years. You can still be successful now, but you really need to have a plan earlier. Planning ahead always pays off regardless, so people that do so are usually more successful anyway.
@CrazyRightWinger, Like 1982-1995 I believe
It's a way for rich people to control a mass of people and make them want to stay, and also to charge them out of the butt while they're doing it. It's a trap
@Garfielf , sadly most companies look for college degrees, so even if you learn all the things in college without paying, sometimes companies act all high and mighty saying "you need the degree". I'm finishing up my last year of comp engineering rn but I feel like I definitely learned lots of things here that I wouldn'tve learned in an apprenticeship. But if it works for you, great man! I'd support it
@Garfielf , you're not a millennial, born between 2000 and 2010, aelf entitled and feels the world owes them for nothing and are content to sit on their asses collecting food stamps and wellfair like its a real job. Its the new hood rat or scrub.
@DomysMommy, millennial generation starts around 1982 though officially.
@Autismo, AYYYYYY you have the nickname I got in marching band as your username, never thought I'd see that word again.
The only plants I'm concerned with are the ones I can smoke.
They finally saw the happening (or saw it as kids) and thought, when this does happen the plants will spare me because i cares for and loved them
"House plants" suuuuuuuure 😏
More like Marijuana plants. In Nevada you can own 12 if you have a REC
Actually I'm just trying to put walls, floors, furniture, etc. in mine...remodeling a house is hard
If I had a home, I'd consider it. They are cheap. And in a pinch, can make a great salad.
I like my cactus, thank you very much.
Implying millenials can even buy homes.
