anyone else /NonTraditional/ at NCSUim like 25 and can't find myself relating to any of my babby peersthey play fortnite unironically
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
>>8391You can always get a young person to pretend to be worldly, I guess
>>8391Really 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.Tl;dr>>8393Without the pretend.
>>8394post-punk is good :>>>>/watch?v=MLcQH8xqibI
