Since when is someone individually responsible for what their generation did? Thats like saying a person of a certain color is responsible if people of their color do something bad, (and gender example, and religion example, etc). Also dont forget that you will age and the technologies you have mastered now will become outdated and people who are younger than you now will laugh at you for it.

As a non-Boomer, I find this whole thing ridiculous. Gen Z is doing nothing to ingratiate themselves to any older generations, including Millennials and Gen X

Sounds like it’s more than ‘just a meme’ but like the ‘Ok Boomers,’ you don’t recognize being wrong, you just babble on. Good luck in life homie.

Be careful boomers are one of those protected classes. If you keep it up "boomer" will become the next word you can't say.

Plan A: get really good at craft to make a good living freelancing as a senior Plan B: freelance as CD (will that save me from client facetime or nah?) Disclaimer: I do still want to make $$$

Any advice on how to actually take PTO? Every time I’ve tried, I get booked on a client and told I’ll need to work through my PTO. I have literally taken 2 days of PTO the entire year. I keep scheduling well in advance and at times when there is nothing on my schedule close to the requested PTO (so shouldn’t end up with runoff work). I even tried telling them the moment I noticed I was scheduled during PTO. They tell me to cancel because I’ll have time for it later. I’m now booked through 12/31

Hi - I’ve started to consult a new agency, an 8 month contract ending Dec,2020. The client is to ‘pay’ me in art plus a retainer reduced by over 60% of my standard rate (because of the painting. Art=1 piece at the end of the contract, but only if I complete the entire contract. IF I don’t stay on/company doesn’t get off the ground or relationship doesn’t work out, he can sever the contract. He is difficult & volatile and has yet to give me a contract 1 month in. Have I agreed to a bad deal?
