It's not over for Gen X

It's been a really long time since I posted to this blog. Frankly, I was kind of over the whole generations thing. But recently something has made me want to vent.

I've read more and more stuff - often written by Boomers - on how Gen Y is just going to leap frog over Gen X and save the world.


When I was in high school, Gen Xers were told we'd never get through college. I have a masters degree.

When I was in college, we were told we'd never have good jobs or be able to support ourselves. I've just been promoted to Associate Vice President.

When I was at my first job, Gen Xers were told they would never own homes.  I'm writing this from my house that I own.

So you'll have to forgive me if I don't buy into this most recent doomsday scenario for Gen X.

This is not an anti-Gen Y column. I think you guys are great. I just don't think you're going to crush us.

Now Gen Z, that may be an entirely different story ...

You know this has happened to you as well so don't even attempt to deny it. You can also Diet Pills rather easily. That truth hurts, doesn't it? The Internet is big. Since I have some know-how in this area, what I have is a preference relevant to Diet Pills. That was a pretty cool conclusion for Diet Pills. Everything I have done with Weight Loss has worked.
