Born Between 1977 and 1983? There’s A New Name For Your Generation
You grew up when cell phones weren't a thing until you were in college. Your favorite movie was "Goonies" and chances are, you played "Oregon Trail." What do they call your generation?
You don't quite fit in with Gen-X, and you can't stand the millennial mindset but you're somewhere in between. Well, now you don't have to fit into either of those. Now, you have a generation name of your own.
You, are an Xennial.
If you were born in the late 70's or early 80's, this generation name is just for you.
There's a good chance that you didn't grow up with cell phones (unlike millennials), but you still depend on yours and know how to use it (unlike most gen-xers).
The way you consume music has completely changed. Chances are, when you were a kid, cassette tapes were the way to get your tunes. Your generation was the first to be able to go online and download music. Even though most of us did it illegally through sites like Napster and Limewire.
According to Business Insider, you are still considered a "micro-generation" but hey...at least we know where we fit in now.
