In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Generation XYZ.”
I was born on 1990 and for a while belonged to the generation everyone talked about. We were the ones who had computers when growing up, yet we still knew what a cassette recorder is and what the picture on the “save” button stands for.
However, now the trends have changed and a new generation to talk about has come. The mysterious millenials. They have touched more tablets than sandcastles in their childhood. Their favorite musical artists rarely have any meaningful lyrics in their singles. Everyone tries to be unique, which makes everyone similar.
I don’t think, that these changes in generations are as big, as they are portrayed in media. Yes, technology has changed the way we communicate and express ourselves, but it will take more than YouTube and 9gag to change the basic human nature and needs.
