[/caption]Unless you live under a rock, you are surely aware of the plight those of us fortunate enough to fall under the umbrella of “GenX/GenY/Millenials” are facing.We amass mountains of debt getting degrees that either 1) don’t help us land a job, 2) get us a job where we’re underpaid & overworked, or 3) we never use at all. We are told we probably won’t have it as good as our parents, let alone have more opportunity than our parents have had. They (whoever “they” is) say we are so addicted to technology that we lack the skills to interact on a face-to-face, personal basis with anyone. Some of us have given up on having relationships altogether because they’re too much trouble to negotiate and/or endure.It’s certainly not the glamorous life. Plenty of times, it’s barely the tolerable life. And for those of us who fall into the underpaid & overworked category, if you make it to your mid-30s without being on meds for high blood pressure, anxiety, or depression (or some combination thereof) you fall into a shrinking minority. Health insurance? Yes, please – it’s a 21st
Century necessity. But I digress….
