A friend told me today that she thinks memoirs are all the fashion right now because we lack a cultural “coming of age” narrative. That’s a reason we live in an era of extended adolescence. What coming into our own as adults looks like is now different and dependent on each of us. It’s at once much more difficult to find your place as an adult in the world and much more free.
Hi, I am Caitie. I'm a little curmudgeonly and uncouth, but when my husband repeats the jokes I say under my breath everyone thinks he's funny. I'm trying to get over my Bachelor of Arts and write again. (I'm not a recent grad.) I have a toddler (please, send gin). I do my best to wander after Jesus, and, thankfully, He dances with my doubts very well. I'm an angsty soul with a healthy appetite for puns and lists and organizing all the things. I run Hope Gathering (a women's conference in NYC) and make dinner happen most nights.
