By now, everyone knows that our generation, the blessed millennials, are having a hard time with the concept of being actual, grown up adults. I already talked about a few reasons that may be, but because it is such an omnipresent struggle, I decided to ask my friends what they would title a book that has to do with becoming an adult, to give you an even better idea of how we millennials feel about this. There is already a great book of comics by Sarah Anderson called Adulthood is a Myth*, which is pretty great in itself (and such a fun read). So how did the rest of us fare in our book titles?
Here are 15 book titles, written by yours truly, the millennials.
15 – ADULTHOOD: WHEN YOU DO EVERYTHING RIGHT BUT YOU STILL FEEL LIKE YOU SCREWED UP SOMEWHERE
14 – Adulthood: I Need an Adult
13 – SORRY, HIGH SCHOOL NEVER ENDS
