I was at Target this afternoon and saw this trophy. At first I wondered why Target was selling these, until I read what it said: "Congrats on Adulting". Honestly I did laugh. Then I rolled my eyes. Then I laughed again. A trophy for those who get participation awards, to go along with Monopoly for Millennials.
Growing up in the early 80's, and graduating High School class of 2000, I get lumped into the Millennial generation, though I still argue my age group falls into a micro-generation, lost in between X and Y. The Xennial. A little bit analog; a little bit digital. I was a kid before the internet caught on and everyone had cell phones. In a way I'm glad for it. Technology is a help but a hindrance, and it's nice unplugging to get back to basics.
Even so, I'm still technically a Millennial, the generation that gets teased. We're such easy targets. But I don't take it personally. I like a good laugh.
