Being a grad student is a lot like being nontraditional [spoiler]I mean OLD[/spoiler], except your peers are all about the same age.
Actually, I'm a few years older than all the others in my dept...

>>8385 is there no middle-ground between age-related disconnect and experience-related disconnect to others

You can always get a young person to pretend to be worldly, I guess

Really one or the other is fine. I've got friends significantly older than me and can even Have meaningful conversations with young people. The similar experiences (class-based, interest-based, or relating to personal character) drastically overcomes age-related differences.

The problems are:
1. You're probs not a normie and wouldn't get along with some rando just because of their age.
2. Cultural changes between generations occur at rapidly shrinking intervals due to internet, technology, and 9/11 and its consequences.
3. One of these changes involves social media usage, which favors lack of mindful, worldly experience, and encourages adhd time-wasting to the degree that no one really develops interests whether they be cards, gardening, post-punk, or w/e.

And as literal 30 yr old boomers adopt these norms, it will become less and less easy to relate to anyone.

Without the pretend.
