Millennials are doing okay.
We are in one of the most economically deprived decades since the Great Depression. We’re jobless, broke, and we have no idea what we’re doing, and many baby boomers have done a great job reminding us that.
But despite these we’re thriving. We’ve done so many things since we started growing as a generation. Our efforts have helped make same-sex marriage and marijuana legalization possible. We honed Mark Zuckerberg and Malala Yousafzai. All odds were against us, and yet we’ve achieved so many things in such a short span of time — and we’re just getting warmed up!
We’re not living the life yet, but we’ve already made the world a better place for our future children. Millennials are doing okay — and we should be damn proud of it. We’ve basically just redefined what the word means.
What is an Okay Human?
An Okay Human is how we define every millennial — imperfect, flawed, riddled with debt, and clueless about so many things, but creative and intelligent enough to power themselves through these obstacles to achieve great things early in life. An Okay Human is an imperfect human doing his best to make the world a bit more perfect. An Okay Human today, struggling to pay rent, will be the next big star billionaire in tech. An Okay Human now, currently flunking law school, will be the first millennial U.S. president.
So, what’s the point?
Before Alexander the Great became “great,” we’re pretty sure he was just Alexander the Okay. It is a status that will always precede glory. No one is born awesome; it’s your job to struggle through the “okay” and grab the greatness waiting for us.
This is a website that celebrates okay-ness. We aim to redefine being “okay” and see it in a positive light — as something that will fuel ourselves to wonderful things later on in life. “Okay” is our key to “Great,” and it’s about to we embrace it.
