Millennials, born between 1976-1990 tend to value experiences over things and devote time and money on them. In Australia, many are priced out of the housing market – and many believe that they have no chance of being as wealthy as their parents.
Im Jess and yes, I'm a millennial.
I’m the first to admit I can't live without my iPhone. It’s the first thing I reach for in the morning. Don’t judge me; you do it too. My phone is a tool to help me manage my time better and that matters because success is important to me. It’s my diary, my to-do list, my event planner. Sometimes, I’d rather chat to my friends on my phone than see them in person.
I'm more interested in my job
As everyone knows, us millennials have been priced out of the property market so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn I'm far more interested in my job than my house right now, or should I say my parent’s house. I’m too busy eating smashed avo to care about throw cushions.
But it’s not all work and no play. I know how to have fun and I love going away on weekends. Load up the car or better yet, take me to the airport! It is important to have a full social life and I look for new experiences every day.
My health also matters. I go to the gym every week. I’m all about the cardio and I’m a fan of natural medicines and health products. Because I’m often on the go, I’m guilty of snacking throughout the day and while being healthy is a priority, I still like to treat myself. I had a burger for lunch yesterday and I often grab some take away for dinner. Hello Deliveroo!
There's nothing wrong with looking good
There’s nothing wrong with looking good and I always try to dress stylish. Clothes are my weakness and I can’t understand people who say they don’t enjoy clothes shopping. Don’t tell my credit card but I’m on my way to buy a new dress right now.
I love buying magazines because I'm always ready to try new and different products. What better way to discover them?
