@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.

the formatting in narrow columns tempts me to read this as a poem

@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

@interneteh Barely makes sense.

Here on planet earth home ownership never signified adulthood.

If she thought that its unattainability is what forced people to rethink what makes them adults she has also been living in a dream.

She just realized this by growing up. There's no collective "we" here.
