Dearly Beloved: We are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.

Sometimes, the most difficult thing in life is knowing yourself. This blog can help you with that. If you were born between 1961 and 1981, you're GENERATION X. We grew up during the greatest anti-child phase in modern history to become the world's most devoted parents. God always works something good out of something bad.

So, we never liked the name, but will you like the page?

Will you join 45,000 monthly visitors and more than 4,000 subscribers to our monthly newsletter? After all, there are 65 million of us stuck in the middle between Boomers and Millennials.

By the way, I'm Jennifer. I've been blogging since 1999, and doing this Gen X blog thing since 2008. Where have you been this whole time?


Dig into nostalgia with stories and vintage photos from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. See vintage Easter, Halloween and Christmas pics and much more!

Gen X Archives

From latchkey and divorce to the Challenger explosion and the Berlin Wall, learn more about the historical events that shaped us.


Connecting with people who understand your story is cathartic. As you read this blog, I hope you'll feel more connected to your generation.
