“I hate my generation ...” - this was how the performance of the Diogenes Lantern of the Kostanay Laboratory of Art began. Kohl and Sasha were not going to save the world, but over the year the existence of the “lantern” these two faces became local celebrities. It is they who are the creators of the new, pretending to define the “fashionable” wave of young people who seek the truth.
And it’s not so much the out-of-show exhibitions on the theme of “The Modern Consciousness of the Young” and performances with catchy remarks. All this could be counted among the folklore "made in underground", if not for one "but." Young people in the provinces are often passive. Passive, but obscenely talented.
Coming out in the morning from the entrance, I often meet fellow traveler Katya. Katya comes with a violin. She plays in the local violin ensemble, and at the age of 16 she already learned how to earn money with talent.
- What's new? - I ask.
- Never mind. I am leaving for Poland. On tour with the ensemble - says Katya.
- Good luck! - I support.
As a dissonance, a young man at the store intervenes in the morning foreplay: "Girl, won't you give me a penny to my patient? ..". I try to refrain from hanging labels and definitions and sadly state the fact of my own half-student life of a “slightly drunk” fellow in age.
Some of the fellow students, having met another on the stairs of the university, begin to ask about the place of work of the latter. And this is today no less fashionable attribute of the young and successful generation, along with the latest brand of cell phone. Increasing cynicism (work = money) in exchange for talent among senior students is particularly acute. However, the formation of this stratum of the younger generation is quite reasonable. Since, acting under the laws of the market, in which, as is known, demand creates supply, young people behave accordingly. Corruption, in fact, is not the result of someone’s conscience once dropped in the mud, but a completely understandable physical effect. This is not about the use of physical force, but about physics, as a science that explains a lot. After all, if pushed somewhere, then somewhere will fall and be broken ?!
“It will fall and break!” - that's exactly what parents think, continuing for 25 or even more years to wrap up their “child” with over-care. Hence the appearance in our ranks of "mama's sons" and no less than "papa's daughters." They always know where to get something “from Gucci”, what “girl friends” smell and how the day ended in House-2. But even in the province, “marking time” unfortunately or fortunately for the new generation of young people will not provide you with stability. Banks burst, moms and dads go bankrupt. Therefore, most residents of the state from 16 and older are trying to instill stability in themselves through their own self-education and consolidation according to their interests.
The main questions now are two young people. This is where to live and where to earn money to live like this? The started program of housing loans for young families and state employees, unfortunately, did not bring the expected result. Not everyone who wanted to, or even not all “passing through all positions” fit into the program. Sad but true. Most young families continue to live with their parents. At best, they make a mortgage loan for some of them and for a few more years populate their first-year students in their square meter happiness, so that it would not be so painfully difficult to pay off this loan.
You can earn a young man today at a construction site, selling coursework, in companies engaged in network marketing. As for the work in the specialty, not many people manage to get there right after graduating from universities and colleges. One of my acquaintances with the pedagogical education managed to get under the program of small business lending support made by young hands “Rostock” - and opened a wonderful Chinese restaurant! Thus, her passion for Eastern culture has grown into a place where this very love of history and traditions now makes a profit.
