This article popped up on Vice last week (some pics in the article might be NSFW) about extended adolescence into 20s and 30s and how the Millennial generation doesn't want to grow up. Like the author, I'm also older now than when my parents had me. Also like the author, I still go out and get hammered drunk with my college friends as if nothing has changed in the last 6 years since we graduated. We have the money and the means to drink top shelf instead of well, take cabs instead of the subway, and eat at steak places instead of McDonalds. At the end of the day, its the same people with no growth or reason to grow. Three couples in our group have gotten married this year. Another 3, me and FutureWife included, are getting married next year. I hate to think that its the nail in the coffin of the status quo, but I can see that train coming down the tracks sooner or later. I'm 16 months away from 30 and now that my younger sister has had kids, that is in the horizon for me as well. These last couple sentences make it sound like theres some external force compelling me to change my lifestyle, which there is isnt. But I dont know if I want to be doing the same thing when Im 35, much less 40. However I dont want to stop either. Focus: Thoughts on the article. Are people today in a state of perpetual adolescence? Do they (we) need to grow up or does it not matter?
