I am proudly a GenXer. I still like the movie Reality Bites. I believe that because we are the smallest generation we had to rise up faster. Everyone, admittedly, has a different take on our generation. And, that is ok.
Despite bring a proud member of Generation X, there are a few things that I can agree with millennials on. As a matter of fact, some people believe I am a millennial. Apparently, I talk and eat like a millennial. Well, according to Buzzfeed. Whatever that means.
Here’s the thing. I grew up with cereal. Most of my friends of the same generation did as well. We liked cereal. We can probably sing many cereal jingles. It was fun to eat cereal till it wasn’t. Here’s the other thing. Apparently millennials are killing the cereal industry. They are eating far less cereal than the groups before them. According to some survey reports, millennials hate cleaning the cereal bowl. And, that is where I agree. I can’t stand it for some reason. Actually, I know why. The cereal bowl is always sticky and hard to clean. Cereal has a way of sticking around. And, in a fast-paced world, I don’t have time to clean that. Although, cereal doesn’t have to be microwaved and that is a plus. I just ate cereal for dinner. Specifically, Captain Crunch and it was a jolt to the pat and so very delicious. But then I had to spend time rinsing it. I get it. It’s silly to even waste time thinking and worrying about this. As a typical GenXer I’m moving on.
