Iâ€™m kind of getting sick of 1982 not being included- lately- in the Mill. Gen group. The Mill. Gen group was basically named for people born in 1982. Because it referred to people that were going to graduate in 2000.. OR later. 1982 is Gen. Mil. start point. I am a 1982 person, canâ€™t identify with Gen. x and never even saw Reality Bites.
