It’s a great time to be a millennial. We live on avocado toast, will probably never own homes, and know that the only way our student loans will disappear is when we eventually die, although we don’t have retirement plans.
Not all of that is true, of course. After all, we’re happy, environmentally conscious and driven by our creative spirits. We also operate in a world where hindsight is 20/20, and Generation Z is doing a better job than we are. A Gen Zer is someone between 14 and 21 years old, and they’re learning from our mistakes and and living their best lives as a result.
They’re already better with money than us. According to today’s infographic, this generation has enough in savings to make most of us jealous, and they also have better relationships with their parents than millennials. But we can comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we taught our younger siblings why it’s important to be politically aware and nice to Mom and Dad. And who knows if they’d have the pleasure of the pumpkin spice latte without us?
Us millennials were the trailblazers and Generation Z is just reaping the benefits. Or at least that’s what I tell myself from my studio apartments. Save us, Gen Z! We’ve got something for every generation: Read about how baby boomers use social media here.
