I should've also asked: do you feel like you're part of your generation?

I don't, but as I go through my "What song are you listening to right now?" list, I'm feeling horribly, terribly entrenched in my generation.

27, and I don't really have a generation, at least I don't feel a part of one.

You're what we call Gen Y, and we Gen X'ers hate you.

We were supposed to be the slacker generation, but then you guys came along and out-slackered us. Either that, or we couldn't even commit to our own lack of commitment. So you guys showed up and reminded us how we had failed in our slackitude.

I think they're going with Millennials, or more pointedly, the 'Me' generation.

So the 70s was the "Me Decade" and they are the "Me Generation"? That's so confusing. Or were the 80s the "Me Decade"?

70's: Me
80's: of Excess
Gen Y = Millennials = Echo Boom (kinda)
