Generation X: the cool generation
I only found out the other day that I’m part of Generation X – sometimes called the latchkey generation (not as cool). Apparently, we were slackers, cynical and disaffected in the 1990s but active and happy in mid life with entrepreneurial tendencies.
The range of years are disputed but seems to run from 1961(at the earliest) to 1984 (at the latest); however, the most common range appears to be 1965- 1979; yes, that’s right, even those of you who have just hit the big 4-0 are Generation X’ers – and really old(!).
Happy Birthday, stranger.
Be happy, be safe and kind.
