Life in the s Courtesy of Rolling Stone The eighties were a decade where style reigned supreme, and few artists had as much style as Madonna. Her hit "Material Girl" spoke volumes about what is remembered as an image-driven decade. One major transformation was the new, expanded role of television.
BlockedUnblock FollowFollowing Web and communications strategy for higher ed, public policy and local politics. Former Chicagoan living in RVA. Sep 18, Wait but Why? A GYPSY is a unique brand of yuppie, one who thinks they are the main character of a very special story. The article, written by an unsigned but presumably Baby Boomer, irreverently spikes the football at Generation Y with lots of self-congratulatory advice on how their generation succeeded by working hard, while ours has not.
This makes us unhappy because our happiness is determined by this simple formula: In fact, more scientific evidence of our plight emerges throughout the essay: Generation Y is spoiled. Perhaps this is because we had the audacity to follow the advice we were given and pursue career trajectories that would be fulfilling, and not secure.
We were told to do things that interested us and spoke to our talents, rather than doing the things we could make money doing. As the article points out, this is our fault. We assumed we were special, when in reality, few of us are remarkably more intelligent or talented than the average Gen Yer.
The author does leave us some parting advice. Will it solve our unhappiness? Is it grounded in reality? The current world is bubbling with opportunity for an ambitious person to find flowery, fulfilling success. You can become special by working really hard for a long time.

How many internships did the average Baby Boomer have to work before they received salary? More than three, right? Do you people have ANY good advice? So for those of you keeping score at home, the reasons Gen Y is unhappy are because they are brats, lazy, and Facebook.
Heeding this fantastic advice, the only conclusion I can draw is that I should immediately quit my boring job and become a performance artist!
Broadway here I come! Delusional Baby Boomers, please sit down and join me on planet earth. Because I have a theory as to a few other reasons this generation might be unhappy. Sally decides to go to a good 4-year public university.
