high generation

So this is in a textbook that I PAID MONEY FOR:

Those in Generation Y (typically born between 1979 and 1984)[sidenote: this is actually objectively incorrect and should give you an idea of the quality of this textbook] are the children of the baby boomers. Numbering about 80 million, these Generation Yers (also known as the Millennial or Internet Generation) have been the focus of their parents’ attention. They have been nurtured, coddled, and scheduled into day care to help them get ahead. The result is a generation of high self-esteem, self-absorbed individuals who believe they are “the best.” Unlike their parents, who believe in paying one’s dues, getting credentials, and sacrificing through hard work to achieve economic stability, Generation Yers focus on fun, enjoyment, and flexibility. They might choose a summer job at the beach if it buys a burger and an apartment with six friends over an internship at IBM that smacks of the corporation America sellout.

Because God forbid someone choose an actual paying job over an unpaid internship. I can’t believe I paid money to read some old asshole’s opinion of his college-aged children. My only source of relief is that I got this used off of Amazon, so none of my money went to the actual publisher or the useless trashcans who wrote it.

Some other doozys from this book include:

–Consistently stating that some states don’t allow gay marriage, despite being reprinted in 2016

–an entire section on cross-sex friendships and how men who hang out with women friends tend to want sex from them. In case you were wondering: No, this section makes no mention of cross-sex friendships between non-hetero people

–Lists “pressure to avoid close other-sex friendships” as a limitation of marriage

I’m sure there’s way more examples, but I’m reading this book as little as possible because I value my blood pressure and my brain cells.

I created this list because I love TVXQ and I love to see other, younger artists cover songs of my bias group. I think it’s interesting to see how they challenge all those songs and I think they all did a wonderful job. Yes, some are better than the others and some are more serious than the others. However one thing that they all have in common is that they all show how loved and respected TVXQ themselves are. And I hope you will respect the artists as well!

Of course no cover will be as good as the original, but really they all did a great job in singing such hard songs I blame Changmin’s high note tho. Remeber, many of them were really young when covering the song or haven’t even debuted yet. Most of them have developed better vocals by now.

I myself was really surprised how many TVXQ covers are out there. In the process I discoverd some new groups that are super talented (looking at you Lu:kus). Also, I love to see which groups/members are Cassies themselves. It’s pretty obvious (Sungjae, Minhyun, 100%). Guess TVXQ are really your idol’s idols lol

Well, I hope you enjoy the covers as much as me and please support all the artists and TVXQ a lot!

If you find any other covers please contact me so I can update the list!

Teenagers are not lazy.
Teenagers. Are. Not. Lazy.
Teenagers wake up before the sun every day, often much earlier than their parents do for work. They go through 6 ½ hours of school every day, often taking difficult and rigorous classes in order to qualify for college scholarships. While doing this, they must simultaneously balance the social and emotional pressures of high school- trying desperately to figure out who they are and what they stand for in a world where they are judged so harshly.
After classes and extracurricular activities, which sometimes run late into the night, they go home and do homework. This can take hours, and be both physically and mentally draining, but they do it anyway because they have been taught grades are more important than self care.
After finishing, they go to sleep and do it all over again the next day.
So I beg of you, stop with the notion that teenagers are lazy. Stop stereotyping the group of people - yes, people - who were thrust into this system of your design. Being a teenager is hard, a lot harder than it was thirty years ago.
We wake up before the sun every day for two reasons: because it was forced upon us, and because it is the only foreseeable path towards a future worth having.
