Why Gen Y is Unhappy

We read an interesting article today. an article about why Gen Y is unhappy, and we would like you to consider it.

The article on waitbutwhy.com attempted to explain ‘Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy?’ The simplistic author has quite a fondness of stick figures and unicorns and used these to explain that due to better living standards, class movement and opportunity, Gen Y has ‘unrealistic expectations’. (I’ve fleshed out the reasoning a little out of necessity).

Do you agree? Does Gen Y actually care to much and have unrealistic expectations about their life trajectory? Or do we in fact not care enough, and find ourselves too distracted by buzzfeed articles to realise we don’t pay enough attention to our aspirations?

Read the article (its pretty much a children’s book kinda structure) and let us know your thoughts xx MR

Why Do I Have To Care About Films?

Are you tired of going to the cinema and hearing the intricate scripts that all screenwriters are currently obsessed with? They Came Together combines every romantic comedy you’ve ever seen and breaks down the dialogue to a precise formula. It’s basically the Scary Movie of romcoms! Next time your gal pals can’t decide on the perfect sappy romcom to watch while you guys share a chocolate fondue and have naked pillow fights, pull out this film and save the night!

Looking for a role model?

Obviously, none of us care about stuff. However, sometimes it’s easy for us apathetics to get side-tracked when we go through our life and start caring about the environment, our friends and family etc. Everyone makes mistakes, but we can’t allow our morals to fall to the wayside due to peer pressure! Next time you find yourself helping an elderly person cross the road or doing something ridiculous like showering; stop for a moment and listen to this song.

1 reason why we hate Buzzfeed

Lists take up my newsfeed on Facebook, the search results from Google and even articles and videos when people explain why they hate lists. I hate them just as much as you do, so I’m not going to list the reasons I hate Buzzfeed (I’m too apathetic), I’ll just let someone more intelligent and less-Gen-Y do it for me.

We encourage you to defy our blog’s ethics and list reasons why you agree or disagree with him.

NUP

It’s amazing how even though Peter Delaney’s song came out almost 7 years ago, and yet it’s still relevant to the same age group now as it does then. I still find it as funny now as I did then, but I feel that my relationship with my parents (or my apathy towards their questions) is slowly changing. I also wonder if this is the final evolution of teenagers, or it is simply a stepping stone in a long journey of rebellion against society.

Let us know if you think this kind of relationship with parents is unhealthy or a normal part of growing up!
