I have a small obsession with my own Generation Gap. I am a member of Generation XY, it falls between the other two. The class of 2000 and surrounding years. In doing my research I’ve found a number of hopeful endings and a number of scary realizations. People don’t grow up like they used to. My generation has a lack of feeling. These may seem like obvious things to some, but I’m very interested in it all. I also read this, which traumatized me for a few minutes.
A period of mental collapse occurring in one’s twenties, often caused by an inability to function outside of school or structured environments, coupled with a realisation of one’s essential aloneness in the world. Often marks induction into the ritual of pharmaceutical usage.
