I always identified as a millennial both by definition and in spirit (perhaps even before the term existed) —I do not have a problem with the association that this term can bring. I have always craved and searched for constant change and a high need for instant gratification, as my parents simply watched and prayed from the sidelines. They have no idea where I inherit these values that are so different than the boomers and x-ers they know. Little did they know back then ... That a similar and entire generation like me was on the rise, a generation equal in spirit and in values that would come together in the hearts of big cities.
These are the same cities that our parents had left behind for suburbia-two generations ago. In retrospect, I now realize that my wrestlings in life to arrive where I am today came deeply from the fact that I never cared to settle. Perhaps I did envision settlement, but not until I found what I was looking for. Here is my story or what I like to call, "My Perfect Millennial Storm."
