    I’m a millennial. I love my zoomer comrades. Even if I don’t understand their stuff, I still respect their whole thing and the fact that they’re inheriting a different world with different experiences than what I did, which is really all my generation was ever asking for and never received. I feel more like a significantly older sibling to gen z than a do an entire generational step older. We generally agree on a lot of the same shit. They’re paying more attention to current events than I was when I was younger, and unfortunately it’s kinda more necessary for them to because we didn’t do a good enough job at that until maybe 5-10 years ago.

    Sorry if I’m wrong and I’m the exception rather than the rule. Keep zoomin’, zoomers 🤙

      I don’t really get the skibidi toilet, but I can appreciate it when someone posts an ai recreation of Micheal Jackson singing it.

        I feel the actual “skibidi toilet” is more of a gen alpha thing, what you see from gen z is mostly just people satirizing it

          I teach Gen Alpha and most that reference it do so “ironically”, and many think it’s dumb or overdone at this point.
