The Official Millennial (Generation Y) Thread

DasItMan91DasItMan91 Member Posts: 5,753 Member Member Posts: 5,753 Member
Hi everybody, I'm starting this thread so everybody is a Millennial can join in and talk to each other about anything involving their childhood and what it was like growing up in the 80s, 90s, 2000s etc. This is a thread to talk about and reminiscent about things we experienced when we were all kids like Cartoon Network, Disney, Nickelodeon, Star Wars, Jurassic Park, school, playing with your friends outside, waking up Saturday mornings to watch cartoons, the type of toys you used to play with, Nintendo 64, PS1, Gameboy, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, 9/11, Doritos 3Ds, Rugrats, Ed, Edd and Eddy, Pokemon and etc. Older and younger generations are welcome too. I don't think there's another thread like this so let's have a good discussion.

    I'm a millennial--an older millennial. But like everyone else, I'm entitled, and I can create my own identity, and darn it, I am whatever I say I am.
    So I identify as Gen X. Don't question it. I do what I want.

    Had to look this one up because I thought Millennials was a term for people born in the late 90's early 2000's.

    Millennial is an identity given to a broadly and vaguely defined group of people. There are two wings of "Millennial" that are often at odds with each other: Generation Y (people born between 1981-1991) and Generation Z (born between 1991-2001). People of Generation Y often have characteristics similar to Generation X, which is why Generation Z will confuse Generation Y with Generation X and then claim to be the generation that represents "MIllennial," when in fact, birth years for Millennial range from about 1981-2001, just as the birth-years for Baby Boomers ranged from 1946-1964.

    Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called "Millennials," with the primary difference between the two being technology. Generation Y grew-up on personal computers, cell phones, and video game systems, while Generation Z has grown up on tablets, smartphones, and apps. Yet, the common ground between both generations is that both have been transforming and altering communication and identity--not just in the United States but globally.

    It is a pretty broad range term. I was born in the late 80s and feel like I have little in common with someone born in the late 90s-2000.

    I'm too old to be in the thread. Born in 78. I must be a tail end Gen X'er.
