So my family moved to Lancaster, Oh about two years ago exactly. My parents got better jobs and what not. For me it was no big deal because I was still a college student in my hometown of Athens, Oh at Ohio University. All my high school and college friends were still in Athens, where I lived. I was living on campus with some friends. Until about March this year, I had not embraced the move to Lancaster.
Lancaster, Oh is not too far from Athens, about 45 minuets…but even better it is not that far from Columbus, 30 minuets or so…
Now I am adjusting to living in the new house: smaller house, with a lot less land property, and a lot more neighbors in a close proximity. And all my friends are not near me. It is weird. So I am starting a new social life. I need more young adult Lancaster friends….
So if you have kept on on my blog, you have read that Gen Y is sometimes labeled the “entitlement generation.” I am glad to say that this is not always true and not everyone has labeled all Gen Y workers this way.
As part of being very entitled or at least being perceived as being that way, Gen Y has come across as dreamers when it come to the work place. Gen Y pictures working at a job that they love. They imagine the “perfect job” and desire it. They will go out of their way to have it.
They have seen their parents work way too many hours, not being home, and not being happy. they do not want that.
Gen Y is relational. They desire conversion and a comfortable workplace. Gen Y workers have come across as whiny, selfish, and lazy to older employers who did not have the same luxuriates that Gen Y has and demands. For example: flexible hours, more benefits, less time at work, more money, less rules in the office, more work at home/from computer opportunities , ease and convenience.
The reality is that us Gen Ys probably should not be asking of so much from our first or second employers. If we want dream jobs we need to realize that we have to work the grunt jobs first and work our way into better jobs via success and hard work. A lot of Gen Ys get out of college and have no work expireice yet they expect the world to evolve around them. That bothers, even me. They have a good record and they have done plenty of hours of service with college organizations and maybe even had leadership expiriences, but they still have no idea how the real world works. And one behalf of other Gen Yers I asay that I am sorry.
With high school class sizes getting bigger and bigger every year, the future of College football is looking pretty awesome!
Year after Year we have seen the largest classes of high schools to graduate nation wide. Every year more and more students are completing High school than ever.
Not only are more students graduating high school, but more and more students are entering college. This means that the pool of talent and the level of competitiveness among college football students is higher than ever.
Ultimately, this means more fun for us fans!
Being a youth ministry oriented blog, I do want to issue a warning for parent alumni – kid relations.
1. Do not force your children to go to the same school as you
2. Do not put significance in your childrens’ ability to play football and/or talent
