    I have been having a few thoughts about a criticism that is often aimed at our generation, that we cannot support ourselves and that we are spoilt etc.

    But, does anyone else feel like the odds are stacked against us compared to these older generations who are criticising us? People I know of my parent's generation owned houses in their early 20's. These days, I know very few people who are working jobs that they actually like (most of these jobs are absolutely miserable Mcjob office roles) and studied for. In fact, many graduates are scraping by with any job they can get if they are lucky. Because of the UK property market being the way it is, not many of us are going to be homeowners (inheritance does not count in this point) and therefore starting a secure family in the future is not going to be easy. I know very few people who are actually truly happy.

    Overall, quality of life is stable compared to third worlders, yes. But that is not exactly much to shout about.
    Real talk here.

    I know how you feel. If you're not on 50k a year then it's going to be tough for you to get a house.

    The idea behind it is good, but the producers need to up their game. Having said that I've only seen the pilot, so hopefully its going to get better.

    Using a film (Internship) as motivation to find a graduate job. I imagine myself as the Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson hybrid amongst my peers, nowhere near as technical or advanced, but a steely determination and good looks abound. I see the KPMG recruitment officer as Chetty- a man with many reservations but also a deep-rooted faith towards myself, willing me on yet simultaneously kicking me down. I've also met my Graham- a snooty student on my course, merely using him as an incentive to stick the boot in, and to conquer against all odds. I take great inspiration from Billy, who resisted the urge to punch him in the face physically, but ultimately achieving this aim metaphorically. Let the games begin!!

    It's a joke. My dad got £500 a week in the 80's waiting tables in his student days (outside London). Top graduates these days would basically cannibalise each other to get that in a ****ty office job. (Not that this was the norm, obviously.)

    Like **** did he, even by todays standards that is £25k per year but £500 in the eighties is like £1400 today. Your average top division footballer probably didn't take home much more than that.

    tbh with the spoiler thing above, I don't even watch them closely enough to know who is who, I'm on my phone throughout lol.

    They hardly showed the black guy in this episode, he looks like good TV potential. Also the slutty blonde girl and the mixed race solicitor girl, think there's good potential there.

    Also there's a guy called Solly right. YOUR NAME IS SULAYMAN BRUV DO NOT CALL YOURSELF SOLLY

    solly ****ing hell
