A post on Facebook identified us as Xennials, a micro generation that exists between the Gen-Xers and the Millennials. Jorrie Varney describes our generation as the last to grow up without technology and the first to embrace online dating, social media and texting in our twenties. We possess the Gen X cynicism and the Millennial optimism and drive. We are a unique group.
We passed notes in high school and didn’t carry cell phones until college (if we were lucky enough to have one). When we did get one, we only used it for emergencies.
We didn’t know what a selfie was. We took 24 pictures and wouldn’t discover that half of them were blurry until two weeks later.
We didn’t have an endless source of entertainment. We had a VCR and TV. We understand the phrase “be kind, rewind” and watched all our favorite shows live because DVR was not a thing. We never missed an episode of Friends, Saved by the Bell, and 90210 even if it meant fighting our siblings for control of the remote.
