Here's the last...I can totally relate to the waiting patiently for songs on the radio with my tape recorder. I had no money to spend on albums, as a matter of fact...I didn't even have a record player! The recordings were bad at best, but it felt great because you suddenly had the control to listen to your favorite "captures" over and over!
Well, there you have it...10 Facts About the Class of 2016 that you would probably never think about, but when you do...my, how the world does turn quickly!
Continued from previous post...#6,7 & 8. I find #7 particularly interesting.
6. Though it's still too early to tell, Generation Y may go on to become the most educated generation yet. The Pew Research Center reported that 63% of Millenials are either college graduates or plan to graduate from college, and about half of those currently enrolled in high school or college hope to pursue a graduate or professional degree at some point.
7. While previous generations, particularly Baby Boomers, strove for longevity in a single job, this year's freshmen will most likely change jobs frequently throughout their lifetime, trying out different work environments and even different professions in search of the perfect fit.
8. They’ll be more reliant on their parents in adulthood compared to previous generations. Some older members of Generation Y have had to move back in with mom and dad while they look for work after college or to save money during the recession. And perhaps the comforts of so-called "helicopter parenting" have a boomerang effect, compelling adult children to return to the safety of home. Whatever the case, research conducted at the University of Minnesota found "evidence that parental assistance in early adulthood promotes progress toward autonomy and self-reliance," so parents should rest assured that the risk of ending up with a lazy 40-year-old in the basement is minimal.
I ran across this article a few days ago and was so amazed by these facts that I wanted to share it with you. I will start with the first 5 facts today.

As the new school year begins, the bittersweet emotions of sending last year's seniors out into the real world may linger, but they'll soon be tempered by the anticipation and challenges of a new freshman class. This year's high school freshmen were born in or around—wait for it—1998.
That's right. When these kids were born, Clinton was in the Oval Office, Monica and Chandler had just gotten together, Mark Zuckerberg was 14 years old, and you could still leave your shoes on at the airport. It doesn't seem so long ago, and yet the world they were born into is vastly different from the dynamic and ever-evolving one they've grown up in.
Whether one or several decades separate you from the Class of 2016, here's a look at some of the characteristics that define these young members of "Generation Y," also known as "Millenials" and "Digital Natives."
Stay tuned...more to come!

When I'm out with my camera, I have a tendency to get lost in all the awesome patterns and textures that can be found in everyday things I come across. I can return from an excursion with literally hundreds of images of, well...NOTHING REALLY! But if you can look beyond what you see you will begin to notice amazing images deep within the actual things you are looking at. Below is an example...I like to shoot patterns and designs to use as textures or backgrounds in our portrait work. Sometimes the images are strong enough that they may be able to stand alone. What do you think...can you figure out what this is a picture of? Can it stand alone on it's own merits?
