I’m a member of the great generation called generation Z. I personally don’t relate to 90% of the stuff out there about gen Z because I’m special and so I’m going to respond to some stuff people are saying about gen Z.

Many employers are predicting that more teens, between the ages of 16 and 18 will go straight into the workforce, opting out of the traditional route of higher education, and instead finishing school online, if at all. Would you make a major investment, possibly leading to years of debt to come—knowing there are new, more affordable (not to mention more convenient) online alternatives coming up every day?

Who the heck is just not going to go to college? Like that’s a really bad idea. You have to have a degree to have so many jobs nowadays. 65% of jobs require a college degree and I’m guessing the rest are low paying retail jobs. Do you really want that to be your future?

Teens spend a median of five hours a day on their phone, according to the survey. But the time spent ranges considerably.

The top 25% said they spend seven hours a day on their phone — practically every moment they’re not sleeping or in school. And the bottom 25% uses it for three hours.

Ok I probably use my phone for five hours a day when I’m like really bored and just don’t want to do anything but who actually uses their phone for seven hours a day. A lot of my friends are like I use my phone at one in the morning and it’s like what the heck. STOP. You’re going to DIE.

The hottest slang words of the moment are lit, bet, shook, yeet, key, and slay. (Business Insider)

Please STOP. The only time these should ever be used is IRONICALLY to make FUN OF STUPID TEENAGERS. DO NOT SAY THESE UNIRONICALLY OR I WILL PERSONALLY MURDER YOU. Also I have not heard anyone say “bet” or seen it any where. SO please don’t say it ever.

Lots of teens said they were addicted to keeping up Snapchat streaks, which are consecutive days of exchanging Snaps with another person. Some said they would accrue hundreds of days of consecutive Snapchats, which is signified by a flame emoji next to the contact’s name and the number of days where a streak was maintained. (Business Insider)

Personal opinion: snapchat is dumb and I’ve never used it.

I’m not going to talk about politics because why
