This blog from Elite Daily, Live And Let Live: 10 Ways Gen-Yers Live Differently Than Our Parents, sparks interest in Generation Y, or millennials. A millennial is someone who was born between the early 80s and early 2000s. I fall smack dab in the middle with 1992. However, I don't feel like this definition of Generation Y applies to me. In fact, I don't know anyone who falls under this description. (You can click the highlighted link above for the full list).

Aleksandra Slijepcevic states that we'll spend money because it's meant to be spent. I don't know about other millennials, but I have student loans to pay off. I don't have the desire to spend frivolously and regret my purchases later on when the bill comes in. I have financial goals and plan on sticking to them. Work to live. Don't live to work. I want to enjoy my youth, but not at the expense of my future.

The author also claims that we love NOT having a planI have mentioned before that I am a control freak. I like having an idea of where my life's going, even if that means adjusting every once in a while.

And to end my rant, the term "YOLO" should die with 2014. The "You Only Live Once" mantra expresses an air of no regrets, but there's no harm in thinking a decision through before making it. There is, however, plenty of risk in making a decision on a whim and kicking yourself for that ugly tattoo when you're sober.
