I ConfessEaster is late this year but feels like it came out of no-where! A coworker showed me a photo of her grandkids painting eggs and I was like, huh, so early and then it was like wait, Easter is THIS SUNDAY. WHAT. HOW. Time needs to chill a bit. This is what "old" people complain about, time moving too fast. STAHP IT.
I ConfessEaster is not very interesting as an adult. There's not much I can do with it, it's still a very family-centric, kid type pastel dreary thing. My order of best to worst:
- New Year's Eve
- Cinco de Mayo
- St. Patrick's
- 4th of July
- Bastille Day (I've never even celebrated it but it must be better)
Another "I Feel Old" thing: Keeping up with the new generations, cause my brother is a Gen Y but I keep thinking of current teens as the same AND THEY ARE NOT. My brother is going to be 30 next year so hello, totally not the same.
- Silent Generation (Lucky Few)
- Baby Boomers (Me Generation)
- Gen X
- Oregon Trail Generation (Going to shoe-horn this one in here)
- Gen Y (Millenials)
- Gen Z (Post-Millenials, iGeneration, or Homeland Generation... will be interesting what will stick)
- (any guesses what this generation will be called... we kind of started late on the alphabet)
According to Wikipedia, there are more Millenials than Boomers!
Also just keeping up with new slang is ugh. PopSugar did a SnapChat (which my coworker calls SnapShot, lols) on what slang was in vs out and I didn't even recognize most of the out. It just keeps changing and changing. I'm going to be that old person using outdated slang that is also too young for me, ha. "Hella" will always be in my repertoire though #bayarealife
Stay hecka fresh, ya'll
