Got bored, so i made this.
Classic Lines if They Were Said Today.
This next generation of kids (Generation Z, as they like to call it) is, to put it simply, absolutely fucked. I, myself, am by no means substantially older than these kids, whose ages range from 1-14 years old. However, even with this slight difference in age, there is a massive gap (about the size of the Grand Canyon. Huge) between the two Generations. When I was a kid (yup, I know we all hate hearing that) I used to love playing outside. I had a swing set in my backyard; I rode my bike everywhere; I skateboarded all day, every day. The outside was a place where my imagination could go wild. Nature became whatever I wanted it to be. Thanks to good ol’ technology, kids growing up have no reason to go outside and play in a tree house. They need only a tablet, or a phone to play on. Xbox, Playstation, Android, Apple (not the actual fruit, a kid in this generation would never eat that) are all names of brands that have completely taken over their lives. They have no need to climb up a tree to imagine themselves as some sort of animal, they need only fire up their consoles and play a video game. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy playing a game every so often, but that’s not the only thing I allow myself to do. As I type this, I have my phone on the table next to me. I received a notification from Instagram. When I checked it, I immediately saw a picture of a kid no more than 13 years old holding a can of Sprite with the caption: “Turnt the fuck up! #GetTurnt.” A can of Sprite… 13 year old… “Get Turnt”…. Really? Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this? Probably not, but I might be the only one who will take the time to rant about it for a few minutes. Maybe it’s my generations fault (Generation Y) for allowing this. Maybe the people of my age group have set the standard for the following generation. I don’t know. But what I do know is the future is fucked. How can this world rely on the future generation who would rather value their new pair of retro Jordan’s and their new PS4, than value their education? Or even their own health? It’s mind boggling and quite frankly, a little bit scary. I don’t want to be getting ready to retire and have my President tell the nation to “get turnt” during his/her Inauguration. There’s literally nothing I can do about this though. I can only complain over the Internet. Oh well. Good luck to everyone in the future. We’re going to need it. Carpe Diem. Make the most of what you can as each day passes. You never know when you might hear your state senator tell you to turn up. God forbid that day ever comes.

That’s the end. I’m done. Generation Z, get your shit together.
