9 Of My Firsts That Non-Millennials Won't Believe

gen·er·a·tion

noun

all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively.

This is the first definition that pops up when you Google generation. But when you think about the birth years that fall into the Millennial group (1980-early 2000’s), it makes you question this interpretation. Computers weren’t even a thing if you grew up in the 1980’s, but if you were born in 2000, you can’t even imagine life without Instagram (just ask my 13-year-old cousin). So how can a 34 and 11-year-old be “regarded collectively?”

When I told my co-workers that I’ve had a screen name since second grade and that my first concert was an American Idol tour, they really couldn’t believe it. They weren’t just shocked by the age of which I had some of my firsts, but also by what they were. Some of them were close to 20 when the first season of Idol premiered in 2002, I was 10. So while a 30-year-old is technically a “Millennial,” there’s some major differences in the way 80’s and 90’s kids grew up. Click the slideshow to see what and when a typical 22-year-old girl had her firsts.
