Confessions of THE Millennial
Confession #1. Usher
Also, I couldn't start this article without addressing the fact that the chorus from Usher's Confessions Part II is stuck in my head (not even the whole song or even the whole chorus, I'm talking just a five second soundbite of him singing "These are my confessions...")
Challenge: Try not to read the rest of my ACTUAL confessions without doing the same.
Confession #2. Reflecting on Changes (Or Maybe Not?)
On a more serious note, I've gone through a lot of transitions, personal changes and explorations since I first started this project, and without even reflecting upon them, I know that I have undergone tremendous personal change and self-discovery along the way.
Confession #3. Manifest Millennial Defined?
Maybe it's just a public therapy session? "What is it supposed to be?"
I think at this point in it's lifespan, we're all as confused as the next person about what this project is, and that even includes me, the creator. But instead of looking at that in a negative light, I'm switching gears here and making these two observations:
- My marketing efforts have been successful enough to spark curiosity and enough for people to ask what it's all about, so clearly I'm on the right path!
- Not defining it gives me the ability to take whatever direction that I may choose without having to adjust and explain accordingly (although I have been very content with using the word self-actualization when playing the word association game.)
Confession #4. Guilty as Charged (Please Excuse My Absence)
Inability to do it all, and do it all well. Opportunity cost is a term that has resonated with me since I was introduced to it in my first semester of college in economics class. I believe that I'm doing my best to keep up with all of my responsibilities and obligations however also realize that I am spreading myself too thin, and that the quality assurance in all aspects of my life is not attainable right now (as I'd briefly touched on this point here: All the Time in the World? )
I haven't been able to keep up with my weekly posts (this being the first in twelve days now) and I don't think anyone knows how guilty I feel about that. So I apologize to those that believe that this post lacks substance, but I had to get something on paper before I drove myself insane.
Confession #5. SEO & SMM: Easier Said Than Done
After finalizing my posts substance I can't help but feel frustrated with the amount of effort that I should be putting into optimizing the S.E.O (Search Engine Optimization) and S.M.M. (Social Media Marketing) to properly promote this page but it really brings me back to writing papers in high school and college. The last thing you want to do when you're done writing a paper is put it into MLA format and cite all of your sources..
Also if you're really missing me don't forget to follow me on Snapchat for constant Manifest Millennial coverage @ayjzzle
