Senior Citizens Give Life Advice To Millennials

Senior Citizens Give Life Advice To Millennials


– Fun in life. If you don’t have no fun in
life, ain’t nothing happening. (metal creaking) – Hi Stephanie, I’m Avalon. Nice to meet you. – Hello, nice to meet you Avalon. – My name is Roland. – Good to meet you. – I’m 22 years old, it’s
my last year in college. I’m just trying to figure
out what’s next, I guess. – You’re a senior in high school? Do you know what your major is? – Probably international affairs. – How did you go about choosing that? – Well that’s what I love. – You’re at a point now where the world is your oyster. You must stay positive. It’s your call. – I thought I wanted to be a nurse because I wanted to help people. And I found out that it
was not good fit for me and so, I wasted like
two years and some money. – I’m still learning so much about myself. There’s so many things that I like, and so it’s just like, it’s
hard to narrow it down. – What do you like? – I love fashion. – Well you’re dressed up
nice, I love your outfit. That jacket is on the move. – Thanks. – You could be excellent at that. Interviewing people about fashion. Keep your mind open,
create your own space. – In high school, I had
enjoyed taking my typing class and I liked being organized. My friend suggested how about clerical, how about going into secretarial? So I went back to
college, changed my major, learned that, and I had many happy years as an administrative assistant. Also I advise young
people to talk to people who know them really well,
whether it’s a best friend, a boyfriend or girlfriend,
and they’ll probably have a very good insight. – I was the only black person
an all-white football team and I was the quarterback and the captain. So I took that discipline
of all of that stuff with me to UCLA and had a great time. But I made my own rules. – And you can count all of
the black people at our school and I was one of them
and it was just like, and on top of me being like
gay and being openly gay and androgynous, like, you
know, it was like definitely– – It’s a challenge. – It was a lot of
challenge but I liked it. – Intellectually,
spiritually, and passionately, you were above it all. That’s how you were able to pull it off. – So love, I mean, I’m
about that age where I should be starting to look
for my partner in crime. – I met my husband in college. I just liked so much about him. Of course, the big test
was to meet the family. – I’m the only girl in the family so every single person’s
gonna be so protective. – Very protective. – I feel bad for whoever I pick. Oh geez. – But I think when it’s the right fit, he’ll fit right in and
they’ll love him like a son. – They always say, like
you know, you, I guess, like you want what you can’t have. I guess that goes along
those lines because I feel like I’ve through that too. But I was always after the
one that was just not really, I mean, that’s just my experience. You know, I’m after the one– – You always want what you can’t have. – Yeah, that was just like kind
of like, not texting me back as much and just being like
whatever, you know, short and because it was just
more of a, it was like more intriguing. – That’s always a learning experience. Why do I want that? Why can’t I get it? What’s the best for me? Sometimes you have to just let it slide. As my old grandmother
used to say, do without and keep on moving. You know, I have just such
a broad spectrum of friends and we’re very open with one another. Be that way. Stay open. Keep the lines of communication open. Always make known your feelings so there is no confusion. – Having raised four sons, we
never had a lot of extra cash. But we always look for
opportunities to have fun. Watching the sunrise over the mountain or the sunset over the ocean. A kiss, a hug, a smile. There’s a lot of beauty
to be found in life. And it doesn’t cost a penny. The worst regrets that
I’ve heard is people saying that they were too busy chasing success or being selfish with their time. That they didn’t spend time or
take time for their families. – You make me want to call my parents. – That’s good.

    I think Avalon could have a really good back-up plan (or even as a hobby) in voice acting. With such a unique sounding voice, especially with that lovely bit of southern in it, I think she'd really enjoy it.

    I really liked this. The elders had really good things to say, and the young people look really pretty. I liked them all.

    🙄🙄🙄 Avalon. You are a SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL!! #LiveYOURLIFE don’t waste your time “looking for your partner in crime.” You’ll find each when the time is right & not a moment before. You will DEF “find” them when you are being your best self & living as authentically as you can. 💯

    Ahm quick sidenote: If they are seniors in highschool, they were born in 2000/2001 so they actually can‘t be millenials…

    Ok I love Avalon but she is a gen z not a millennial. Millennial does not just mean young person, and they use her as the gen z in all their can a gen z pass this test videos

    That girl's voice 😖 is so annoying, I just wanted her stop talking, each time she would say something I just wanted to pull my hair off 😱. Her voice gives clues that she might of been abuse. 😬

    The advice at the end about not ONLY chasing success and not being selfish about what's important for us in a me me me time of our lives… is crazy because that's what we think we have to do in our 20s to be happy and healthy and comfortable once we get to the generativity ages. But remembering to take it a day at a time is what will really give us good health and memories if we stop and take time for the sweeter things in live

    I have some advice for seniors.When you are in a restaurant DO NOT pull out a dirty hanky and blow your nose at the table,it grosses out everyone around you when they are eating. Go into a washroom blow your nose there,wash your hands and go back to your table. I know im not alone when i say this.
