@interneteh tbh one of the things I'm most proud of my kiddo for is his emotional intelligence.

It's weird being part of a
generation where the
signifiers of adulthood--
home ownership, stable job,
etc.--got so unattainable we
had to make our own
signifiers, except ours are
internal: acting emotionally
mature.

And now very few of our
elders actually qualify as
adults to us.

@interneteh also not being fooled by the first article we see with on Facebook

@interneteh @CheshireEmber ...this is messing with my head and I don't like it

it definitely explains an opposite phenomenon for me as well, though - there are a couple people on a Discord I'm in with the "agelessCryptid" role because we keep forgetting how young they are
