Daily Prompt: Generation XYZ

Think about the generation immediately younger or older than you. What do you understand least about them — and what can you learn from them?

I’m Gen-Y. I’m pretty sure that my generation were the last generation of people who were relatively normal and could string a sentence together. The following generation, the Millennials just make me want to punch them in the face.
They’re the ones who have no drive. They’re selfish, they’re lazy. They want the entire world handed to them on a silver platter, and even then they’re not quite sure that it’s what they want. It’s the hipster generation; the too-cool-for-anything-mainstream generation; the generation of ‘fixies’, and glassless-glasses, LOL-speak, ‘hashtags’, general stupidity and no common sense.

I can honestly say I understand absolutely nothing about them. They come across as just being so incredibly selfish, and I just don’t get it. When I was younger, if I acted like they did, I’d either end up getting nothing out of life, and if I behaved like they did, I’d end up with either a kick in the pants or a swift back-hand. But now the Millennials are also part of the generation that pretty much made any kind of physical discipline taboo, or in some places, illegal. Hence why they were able to act like little shits and get away with it.

What can I learn from them?? How not to behave, and how not to raise a child. I have no intentions of actually having children whatsoever, but if I actually did, I would raise my child the way I was raised.


Jan 31: NaBloPoMo Pressure Jan Edition

Did you feel a lot of pressure with January’s NaBloPoMo?

I really struggled with Jan’s NaBloPoMo, mainly because I didn’t structure myself properly to include a set time to actually write my posts. More often than not, I would get either too busy or too lazy for a couple of days, and then have to spend and entire afternoon / evening writing a bunch of posts just so I could catch up, and get them all out of the way.

Like right now. I’ve got another 9 posts in order for me to catch up completely, and I’m not sure how many I’ll be able to get through before I need to go to bed, or go to work.

I’m actually that far behind, January’s NaBloPoMo has finished and February has already begun, so the pressure is going to continue. Now I have to try and work out when I’m going to be able to sit down for a decent chunk of time and really smash out a string of posts, whilst still making them seem readable and not seem so… rushed.

Daily Prompt: Blogger of Repute

Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?

which one??

Bitch. Lazy. Baker. Sleepy. Late. Talented. Dancer. Bitch. Self-indulgent. Ignorant. Loving. Hilarious. Bitch. Housewife. Sarcastic. Negative. Bitch.

Are you seeing a pattern here??

I think there are three primary reputations of equal share: Bitch. Sarcastic. Funny. I can’t really pick one over the other.

I’m not entirely sure at what point in my life I became so jaded. But I think it started when I was a kid. Maybe it really kicked in when my younger brother was born, and stole my thunder (just kidding!). I can remember being a nasty vindictive little shit when I was a little kid. I’m not entirely sure why, or what caused it – perhaps I was just always like that? Maybe it was predetermined from birth – I am a Scorpio, after all. Which supposedly says plenty.

Then, I guess life happened, and it was all downhill from there.

Now, I’m 31 and I’m still a nasty vindictive shit, but I also have managed to completely hate people in general. I just want to live in isolation.
