No One Ever Told Us That: Advice for Generation Y

January 21, 2013 | Cat | Comments (1)

Growing up, I'm sure the adults in your life were always trying to distil some sort of advice about what you should be studying or how you should be saving your money. We all nod and listen but sometimes we just need to “figure things out” on our own. 

Now that I’m in my mid-twenties I’ve been wondering about those “major life decisions” and if others my age consider these questions too.  From reading a few books about this “defining decade” that is my 20s, I’ve noticed that our “thirty-is-the-new-twenty” culture doesn’t really help us sort it out since they tell us these years don’t really matter.  Maybe this generation of 20-somethings need their own manifesto, at least something longer than 140 characters...  Take a look at these titles about authors tackling the quarter-lifers as they speak out about who they are, what they want and how to get it.
