AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'‘‘Adult’’ is now a verb. Internet cartoons and listicles prove it’s acceptable for people in their 20s to admit that ‘‘adulting is hard’’. We live with our parents longer, have babies later; we are perpetual adolescents who can’t cook dinner and instead order Uber Eats and post it on Instagram. We spend disposable income on fancy coffees and expensive brunch, which why we can’t afford property. If only we had the perseverance of our baby-boomer parents.' (Introduction)
