    The Generation Of Kids Born In The Late '70s and Early '80s Finally Have A Name

    Acknowledgement, finally. I completely agree with all of this.

    If you were born during the late 70s or early 80s, you are most likely grouped in with the annoying millennials or pessimistic Gen X's. Good news, you're neither!

    There is now a micro generation between the years of 1977 and 1983 called Generation Xennial. If you're born in one of these seven years, you've probably found that you don't fit into either of the existing generations surrounding you, this is because you shouldn't! Xennial's are different and therefore they get their own mini generation.

    Typically, Xennials don’t have the cynicism associated with the Gen X generation, but they also lack the excessive optimism of millennials, who are said to overestimate their potential. Xennials fall somewhere in between these two extremes.

    Because this generation name is fairly new, there is still a lot of talk, and disagreement on the characteristics surrounding the people in this generation.

    People born during this specific time period did not grow up in world where the internet and cell phones were always there, like the millennials who came after them. Xennials can distinctly remember when these technologies emerged. But unlike Gen X, they were able to adapt to these new technologies very quickly and easily.

    When new technology came out, it grew as they did. They were old enough to get used to it and young enough to adapt and understand it. They are now able to use technology just as proficiently as millennials but can still remember a time without it.

    Xennials take the good from both generations surrounding them, and leave the bad. If you were born around the time of 77 to 83 and feel like you never belonged as a Millennial or Gen Xer, it's because you're neither!

    Congratulations Xennials, you've waited long enough and now you finally have your very own micro-generation, that also has some pretty awesome traits.
