vonapathy: Well, I can't say I'm particularly stressed, life has been pretty great so far actually. Key things for my stress free life:1.) smoke herb everyday
Alex Broughton Butt Chugger: 18-34?? Screw you, you can't lump me in with those 18-21 year old morons.
plcow: These articles never mention the real causes of stress other than unemployment.1) The constant bombardment of bad news from around the world, especially that of which you could never make it a priority to do anything about.2) The constant pressure of being told how to live your life, not just by parents, but by the media, every idiot blog writer, employers etc.3) The constant self-inflicted exposure to jealousy (and therefore dissatisfaction with life) caused by watching shows about wealthy people and spending time on facebook.4) The constant pressure (again self-inflicted) of being judged on facebook, match, etc.5) The complete detachment from nature.Pick 3 of these things, and completely cut them from your life (or add more in the case of nature). I promise you, you will be happier.
Girion47: And back then any job would cover rent.
Pochas: Here come all the assholes from the previous generation, who had everything handed to them by the 2 most prosperous generations before them, managed to fark it all up in an economic disaster, but for the most part still get away with their hefty retirement funds and pensions (pensions don't exist for my generation), yet they still have the audacity and total lack of awareness to call MY generation entitled.Dumbasses.
vonapathy: Well, I can't say I'm particularly stressed, life has been pretty great so far actually. Key things for my stress free life:1.) smoke herb everyday2.) work that ass out and eat a healthy diet3.) stay off facebook, except for the occasional "I'm alive" update4.) marry your sexy best friend and have lots of sexy times together5.) no kids6.) pay yo damn bills7.) surround yourself with intelligent and funny people; gleefully shun douchebags and drama queens.8.) drink only in social situations9.) don't put too much stock in what everyone/pop culture/religion says you should be doing10.) call your parents regularly; they love you, and they want to see you succeed/be happy.
doczoidberg: Ah, yes. Let's continue expecting younger generations to work harder, get more education, carry more debt, and do more with less than what every generation before them had.It's a SWELL economic model that's working out great!
poughdrew: was a fantasy land.
Pick13: FTFA: So-called "Millennials," defined here as American adults ages 18 to 34I was born in 1979 and now I'm being called a Millennial? My life has been turned upside down this Friday morning.
Alex Broughton Butt Chugger: 18
onyxruby: A generation that by and large was never taught to deal with stress or failure and raised as snowflakes can't deal with the real world? Surprise! I work at a University where we have student workers, many of whom have never dealt with the real world before.
onyxruby: !It is such a problem that we have a special ceremony in the fall just to separate the parents from the students so that the students can start to deal with the real world all by themselves. I have heard from people that the military and similar institutions have the same problems../rant off
I would show this article to my father, but I'm afraid the ensuing laughing fit might kill him.Born in the 1920's, his father died a few years after he was born. His mother raised 3 kids by herself in poverty through the depression.After that Norman Rockwell childhood, he took accelerated courses so he could graduate high school at 17 and go off to war. No senior year of high school, no proms or any of that good stuff.So for my father, and all the guys like him, let me say to all you little stressed out snowflakes:
FARK YOU, PUSSIES!
Drexl's Eye: As a Gen Xer, I'd like to point out that I don't care. Also, I feel stupid and contagious.
LDM90: In before people saying BS I don't believe it and when I was young and kids these days./snowflake crotchfruit
