Michaela Kis
One comment

The media is saturated with messages that Generation Y is entitled, lazy and technology-dependent, but is it fair to be painted in such a way? Since viewing the video of the Newtown High students questioning Tony Abbott, it’s fair to say that perhaps our generation is being judged too harshly. In the nine minutes and…

Emma Nobel
One comment

  Gen Y women prioritise their future financial security ahead of their male peers, the annual Lifelounge Sweeney Research report shows. While one in three young men, aged between 16 to 30, acknowledge they like to live in the moment, only one in four women surveyed said they believed their future would eventually take care…

The generation gap has always been a topical issue. Just what do the older generation do when things begin to change? Will they embrace a new era of modern inventions and ways of life, or will they refuse and forever live in the past? And how do young people perpetuate this change? There have been…

Gen Y are called a lot of things, a lot of the time. We’re accused of being brats with low attention spans, who don’t know the meaning of hard work, are unoriginal (hence the vintage obsession), and who can’t commit to anything for longer than five minutes.

Gen Y – the anxiety generation

lip magazine

There are periods in life that are unavoidable, expected and yet still manage to knock you off your feet when they come your way.

Chances are if you’re reading this, you’re a Gen Y (meaning you were born between 1980-2000, though these dates are not clearly defined). Gen Y are sometimes referred to as the Millennial Generation, Generation Me and the Net Generation. Gen Y is stereotyped as having Peter Pan syndrome, being disrespectful to authority figures, having a sense…
