An 18-Year-Old Looks Back on Life by Joyce MaynardSo where are we now? Generalizing is dangerous. Call us the apathetic generation and we will become that. Say times are changing, nobody cares about prom queens and getting into the college of his choice any more—say that (because it sounds good, it indicates a trend, gives a symmetry to history) and you make a movement and a unit out of a generation unified only in its common fragmentation. If there is a reason why we are where we are, it comes from where we have been.
In An 18-Year-Old Looks Back on Life, Joyce Maynard, the New York Times bestselling author of Labor Day and After Her, then just an 18-year-old freshman at Yale, reflects on the culture she inherited—from Jackie Kennedy, to TV, to Women’s Lib—in what became a generation-defining essay.
Features an introduction by the author.
An 18-Year-Old Looks Back on Life was originally published in the New York Times Magazine, April 23, 1972.

MacNicol approached her 40th birthday "with so much dread and shame" because she didn't have what she was "supposed" to have - a husband and a kid or two. And that year was difficult in some ways: She was caring for her mother, who was struggling with Alzheimer's, and swooped in to help her sister, a single mother, when her third child arrived. But it was also exhilarating and full of adventure; by year's end, she thought: "I'm so angry that no one prepared me for the possibility that life could be great.

When I was younger I got my heart broken by an older woman. No matter what I said, or what nice things I did for Karen, she was out of my league since I was younger. Karen was a 17 year old junior, and I was an incredibly good looking and intelligent 16 year old. This is exactly what my mom told me every time I brought her cupcakes.
