Is it true that our generation is the lazy generation? (20ish to 14ish)
At the library today there was this girl who was complaining about her life, and how she had few friends and such because of all the drama and such going on with her and a lot of girls. Personally, I think drama is just so pointless, because at the end of the day you're exhausted, you hate everyone, and everyone hates you. It just serves no purpose, and accomplishes nothing.
I brought up the subject with my stepmom she said that it was normal for their generation. She said that with the media, and all the celebrity influences they were going to be the Drama generation. I commented on how that sucked, and she just mentioned that it wasn't as bad as my generation, which apparently is the Lazy Generation.
Also, she said that we're the age group that people hate to hire because of the fact that we are so lazy. Is this true? Are we really that lazy?
However, being lazy isn't always bad. Being lazy just makes you inventive. Acronyms are born out of the want to not type out long words. Just look at the iPhone. You can google something, then call your friend to tell them what you googled, and not even move an inch!
From laziness comes slow progress because if you're lazy, you're going to want a shortcut. Or at least, I enjoy finding shortcuts. Heck, what are Segways? I'll tell you what they are: lazy transportation machines.
I would rather be a part of the Lazy Generation than part of the Drama Llama Generation. Degrassi? Puh Lease.
Leave me with my computer that can not only make phone calls, but can also re-enact the fall of Enron.
