11 Things Gen Zs Have the Will for This 2022

September 13, 2022

There’s no way you’ll convince me that this life isn’t just one big pot of three-day-old beans. If not, why would I be scrolling through Twitter (which I thought was my safe space) and suddenly be reminded I can’t afford to buy original Samsung charger?

Anyways, if you’re a Gen Z like me who can’t even dream of creating a will because you don’t have money yet, all’s not lost because you still have the will for these things, at least.

The will to live

But some of us are already tired of life, TBH.

Never take shit

Talk anyhow, and you WILL be checked. Don’t play.

Free food

As long as we’re eating food we don’t have to pay for, you can sign us up.

A fire wardrobe

Broke is temporary. Slay is eternal.

A dictionary of Gen Z slangs 

If there’s one thing Gen Zers will do, it’s infuse every sentence with slang. Purr.

Party

Like a wise man said, “Overthinking no dey solve problem”.

The streets

Sure, we’ve either served or have been served breakfast more times than Atiku has contested for presidency. But will we leave the streets? No.

Steal hoodies

If you’re returning to the streets, you might as well have something to keep you warm, yunno?

Constantly ignore WhatsApp BCs

But Risikat, shebi the prayer BC big mummy sent told you to “send this prayer to 50 people to get your miracle”?

Mad gadgets

Sapa or not, those fire pictures won’t take themselves.

Sleep

Because after a long day of slay, even the main character needs to sleep.
