FARGO — In the Midwest, we're used to being told we have a "Minnesoooota" accent, we dress like tourists and we're sickly sweet. It's ingrained in us from our childhood — that gene dubbed "Midwest nice." It's not until you visit other states and arrive home that you really witness the difference for yourself — an inherent collection of knee-jerking niceties, an almost involuntary reaction in hospitality.
This week, we have work happy hour, a sushi date with an old friend, an evening baseball game with family, a birthday party at the cabin, a neighbor's wedding out of town, a fundraiser with our favorite organization and zero time for ourselves. Next week — well, next week looks about the same. As millennials, we've been reminded time and time again that we must be involved. It's our duty to volunteer in the community, support friends and family, practice lifelong learning and have calendars jam-packed with resume-boosting activities.
