dievca was musing to Master about how she hasn’t hit the drama point others are experiencing with COVID-19. (The Millenials, Generation Z, and the Boomers.) Granted, she is working and going in to work. Work is relatively safe, but she does interact with people, etc.
Time at home meant she has had the opportunity to work on her injuries, clear out her Mom’s house and her space, resell or donate a number of items. dievca hasn’t minded sitting around watching a movie, reading a book, or taking the time to cook. she doesn’t feel the need to socialize and wandering the empty City is a treat.
After talking to a friend about feeling guilty for enjoying the time to regroup – the friend looked at dievca and said,
“Generation X is made for quarantine.”
Spending time alone at home – no problem.
Not being able to go places – no problem.
Creating odd meals from a low stock pantry – no problem.
Avoiding others – no problem (Stranger Danger & Just say, “No”)
Not traveling – no problem
Maneuvering to get things done – no problem
And the chance to wear a cozy rainbow morph outfit in a sunny apartment? Heaven.
We had a little conversation (a 12 yr old and dievca)….
and the phrase “OK, Boomer” came into play~
dievca is NOT a boomer…(Master is~)
As of July 1, 2019 (the latest date for which population estimates are available), Millennials, whom we define as ages 23 to 38 in 2019, numbered 72.1 million, and Boomers (ages 55 to 73) numbered 71.6 million. The two groups sandwich and overwhelm the middle child, Generation X.
dievca is a slacker….Hello….Generation X.
Don’t f*ck with her.
She’s a bit cynical (actually more of a realist), does not need validation, and slides by quietly to get things done.
Which Generation are You?
|The Lost Generation
The Generation of 1914
|The Interbellum Generation||1901||1913||108||120|
|The Greatest Generation||1910||1924||97||111|
|The Silent Generation||1925||1945||76||96|

|Generation X (Baby Bust)||1965||1979||42||56|
Generation Y, Gen Next
|iGen / Gen Z||1995||2012||9||26|
Generally, Gen Xers are the children of the Silent Generation and older baby boomers.
dievca’s parents were of the Silent Generation.
Anyways, the comment sparked a conversation that made dievca laugh like hell. Kids are fantastic with serving up a dose of reality. dievca couldn’t decide if she was more offended by being called a “Boomer” or her personal reaction to being called one! (Sorry Boomers…😘)
Midwestern weather in February calls for winter dressing.
dievca dug into her closet and came up with older items that still generated a couple of compliments.
she was astounded.
A whole discussion on fashion and Bricks & Mortar VS. Online Shopping occurred in an airport restaurant because of her coat. The discussion continued because her flight seatmate worked for ShopBop.
Two adorable Millennials noticing the exhausted Generation X-er’s style – a shocker.
Who said that women over 50 are marginalized?
