Do you remember rotary phones? Do you know what VCRs do? If the answer is yes, then you might be a Xennial. Xennials are people born in the late 1970s or early 1980s. Xennials relished in technology and were quick to upgrade their phones. However, Xennials might be too young to understand the movie Reality Bites. This movie is a great recap of the thoughts and feelings of Generation-X.
