I overheard someone say recently that Millennials are to blame for all of the societal problems we are experiencing. I am not so sure about that – I don’t know what a Millennial is exactly and I’m usually cautious about casting a wide net of blame when I am not certain what I will catch. I also tend to think this whole “It’s the Millennials’ fault” is an easy way for some to avoid taking their own responsibility as well. Sure, every generation has had its issues and problems, including my own, but I shoulder the blame for my ozone-depleting use of Freeze it!, the horrible shoulder pads that never did make my waist look smaller and my misguided use of blue eyeshadow.
