    To those born in 95' and 96'. Do you feel like you don't belong to any generation?

    I've noticed this a lot myself and I was wondering do any others feel lost when it comes to this? I was born in 96' and I've noticed a pattern of things changing the year that my grade gets up to bat. We get to high school and BAM! that year they changed our schedule from blocks to periods. We get in 11th grade, halfway through high school and suddenly everyone can have their phones, laptops, ipods, in class. A bunch of policies in school and in life seem to be changing and I just don't know what to do about it. Being on the cusp, the leaders of generation z, i just don't feel like I fit in with it. I didn't grow up with all this fancy shmancy stuff that they do but I'm still labeled as such. Thoughts? Any would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't fit in with this generation of mine as well.
    Being born in '96, I will be graduating at a younger age than my graduating class, (17). I can see how technology runs their lives. It seems like they are literally glued to their mobile devices and they don't seem to care or pay attention to the world around them.

    I did not grow up with most of these new digital and technological accessories such as those you mentioned (except for the laptop, computer, and a phone.) nor am I able to use those things in class.

    I don't obsessively and excessively use them at home either, unless I am listening to music, concentrating on work, or on here. But time does change and I am beginning to see this more frequently on the news and the internet. The world is becoming more technologically advanced. I feel much more in tune with Generation X.

    In my opinion, Generation Z should be those born from 2000 onward for these people are truly the ones born into technology.

    I don't really feel like I belong to a generation. Generation Z feels to me more like my younger siblings -- I rarely see their faces beyond the small circle of light provided by their iPod screens. We also don't really fit into the 90's kids category as we didn't live in the 90's long enough to experience much.

    Labels like 'generation' are fluid anyway.

    I think today's teens (93-99) seem like a mix of generation y and z.

    As a person born in 97, this thread pushes all my ''I don't belong'' buttons. But even if I were that little bit older, I'd be a Generation Z renegade.

    Honestly, my lack of a facebook speaks for itself. And no, I'm not trying to be a hipster. Or a hermit. I swear I'm all for sharing... just not pictures of my meals or what mundane task I'm busy with at the time.

    Being born in '91, many of my friends have siblings born between 95-97, and I do not really envy them when it comes to the popular culture these people were brought up with. My friends and I adopted most (meaning all) of our cultural luggage from our parents, including movies, music, and so forth. Today, disney and xbox seems to give people far too much of their "social education", and if you don't approve of that there is not really much choice. Even though the (western) world seems to be more liberal than ever, the "mainstream" culture is in a sense narrower now than it has been since the pre-Elvis era (meaning the 50's). This is just my bleak opinion, so hopefully someone around here will prove me wrong!

    I actually prefer early 2010s pop culture to say, early 2000s pop culture but it's still pretty weak compared to anything from the 60s to 90s.

    For some unknown reason, I am sorted into Generation Y when I am supposed to belong in Generation Z. I identify better with Generation Z, though.

    (Born in '96.)

    I am mostly independent of those traits that tend to define Generation Z. People who compulsively text/network online bother me. I don't consciously assert my individuality for validation. I do have big glasses, though.
