I have scoured the internet in search for the answer to a simple question: When were millennials born? So, what do I mean by this? I was looking for the exact day, the millennial generation started. After looking at many expert opinions, I know now I have the EXACT answer.
The millennial generation has always seemed interesting to me. They have basically turned into Generation X’s version of ‘those meddling kids.’ Which is funny to me because Generation X was the Baby Boomer’s version of this exact same thing. “Useless, Useless, Everything is Useless!” Vanity… Millennials same difference right?
When were millennials born?
When looking at when millennials were born I had to think a bit outside the box. After much evaluation, I noticed a trend… There was not a single person that was older than me that claimed themselves to be a millennial. Not one… ever.
Obviously, I mean apart from some creepy weird guys….
That is when it hit me… I knew the exact day and TIME millennials were born. Millennials were born on April 12th, 1984 at 10:45 CST.
I am literally the oldest millennial.
I know you might be thinking I am a bit too old for this… (sometimes I am still the youngest.)
Hear me out:
Millennials question authority (I did run for governor)
Millennials are motivated by meaning (Bigger than yourself… sound familiar?)
Millennials are tech savvy (website… C’mon!)
Millennials are task oriented (Every DAY!)
Cold Hard Facts
When did the moment hit me exactly? The other day, my wife was having phone issues. So, she did what any other Gen-Xer does when tech breaks…. She handed me the phone and said, “See if you can figure out what is wrong with this?”
My wife is also 9 days older than me… which is just past the line.
Also another fun fact… I have lived in 3 different apartments! That is an obvious factor… because you know no one ever lived in an apartment before a millennial. (That was sarcasm)
I wrote an article about millennials. How much more self-absorbed can I be? Isn’t that what all the old farts are saying about us?
I love Starbucks and other hipster things that are trying to be cool… well maybe not.
I am gluten free! My diet isn’t… but I am. Just think before the millennials came around no one had a clue what gluten even was.
Obviously, with all this knowledge… I HAVE TO BE THE OLDEST MILLENNIAL!
