So I'll be bluntly honest here, I don't have much to talk about lifewise, haha. I've been keeping quite boring lately, just going to school, coming home, doing homework. Sunday I did have friends over, Jen and Sam :). We built a snowman. That reminds me, where is spring?!? I could swear I felt it coming..
I was just curious, has this phrase been pinned at any of you before? In class today, my Spanish teacher threw around this phrase, referring to us. She told us that the previous generation basically worked like hell to pave the way for us, and we expect to have pretty much whatever we want. As if we're entitled. I was wondering.. Do you guys agree?
Sure, we aren't bad off. We text on our cellphones, alot of us (disincluding me :P) have laptop computers. It's not exactly the hard knock life, I'll admit. But at the same time, I struggle trying to accept that we're actually that greedy. How is our generation any different than the rest? Is it because we're equipped with such advanced technology, and rely so much on communications and materialistics?
Personally, I think everyone has a streak of self want in them. It's a natural instinct, to want to satisfy yourself in every way possible. But it also comes down to what limits one is willing to push in order to receive everything they desire. Plus, I don't feel entitled to anything, other than the necessities. Food, water, and shelter. That's what I expect to be able to get, the rest is just bonus. Of course growing up I've come be to accustomed to the lifestyle I have, which is decent. I have a dresser of what I'd consider nice clothes, I have television in my room, and I drive a car I'm satisfied with. But extravagance? Hell no. I realize I live on a small dairy farm, and we can't afford to have whatever we want, whenever we want, and I don't feel entitled to it. If I want more, I'll earn it when I step out into the fast paced real world. I plan to work for what I get, just like every generation before me. It may not be as intense physically, but I know I'll be using education as my key to success in the future.
So bascially, I think that's a false lable. Atleast for the generation as a whole.
