They’re doing it again.

“They” are talking about you Millennials again.

CNN.com today features an original and highly amusing comic opinion called “Can We Stop Worrying About Millennials Yet?” by Matt Bors.

You can read the entire comic here.

Technically speaking, Matt Bors fits within one definition of the Millennial demographic as those born between 1980 – 2000; he arrived on Planet Earth in 1983.   But that still makes him a great deal older than you. Is he speaking your truth? Is anyone?

School’s been out long enough now that maybe you’re mildly interested in writing something, or at the very least in reading something, especially if it’s all about you.  In fact, I have three (ahem) great ideas to sustain some skills you learned last semester.

Why don’t you take this quiz: “How Millennial Are You?” 

Then you should read: “Millennials: Confident. Connected. Open to Change.”

And now, go observe people your age. Listen. Watch. Wonder. Write something. Write something true that “they” haven’t noticed about you yet. Write something so true it will begin to set the record straight from within.

Happy Summer.
